Toxic Chemicals in the Home

Toxic Chemicals in the Home

Exposure to toxins can cause major injuries and may even be fatal. Among children, accidental poisonings are actually a leading cause of death. Unfortunately, hazardous chemicals are far more common than people tend to realize. Even the average household contains a wide variety of highly dangerous chemicals.

For the safety of children and adults alike, hazardous substances need to be stored in adequately durable containers and kept in secure locations. When they are not, major injuries can result. If you or a member of your family has been injured by a misused toxin, you could have grounds for a legal claim against the party responsible. To learn more, call a Charleston personal injury lawyer from the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.


Some dangerous substances that can be found in millions of households in the US are:

  • Bleach
  • Furniture polish
  • Cleaning agents
  • Nail polish remover
  • Pesticides

Exposure to these substances can have immediate effects such as burns, irritation of the lungs and eyes, respiratory problems, and nausea. If immediate treatment is not received, the injuries may progress to organ failure, nerve damage, and potentially death.


Even when we take reasonable precautions to protect ourselves, other people’s negligent actions can cause us to be exposed to dangerous chemicals. You may want to contact a Charleston personal injury lawyer if you have been hurt by errors like:

  • Defective packaging of a toxin
  • Failure to warn about a product’s dangers
  • Chemical spills
