A: Yes. If you develop a health problem as a result of workplace exposure to a toxic agent, you can take legal action against whoever is responsible for your injury and recover the compensation you deserve. Supposing the manufacturer provided the company with adequate guidelines on how to use their product, yet the latter failed to do so, they will be held liable for disregarding the instructions. If you are in this situation, I strongly encourage you to take legal action against the company as soon as possible. A lawyer who specializes in cases of toxic exposure will help you recover fair compensation for your injury from the party at fault.
