One of the instances in which we might be able to provide you with free claims advice in St Mawes is benzene poisoning. Benzene is a liquid naturally found in crude oil. It evaporates in the air very quickly, and partially dissolves in water. It is colourless and highly flammable. It is frequently used as a solvent in adhesives and some paint removers. Despite its wide industrial uses it is an exceptionally dangerous substance, and is subject to strict regulations governing its usage. It is extremely poisonous and if you have been exposed to it, you might be able to use one of our injury solicitors in St Mawes to make a claim for benzene poisoning. The symptoms of benzene poisoning can include:
- Increased heart rate including palpitations
- Tremors (mainly of the hands)
Symptoms will depend on the volume of the exposure and the period of exposure. Severe cases can result in death. If you suspect you may be suffering from benzene poisoning it is important that you seek medical attention and receive the very best advice you can to counteract the problems. Simple tests will be able to establish if you have been exposed to benzene.
Steps to take if you have suffered benzene poisoning
If you recognise any of these symptoms and think you may have been exposed to benzene through the course of your work, then speak to us today for free claims advice in St Mawes.
