Dangerous Chemicals and Children
If consumed by children, household chemicals can cause serious injury or
death. Some products, even toys, can expose children to dangerous chemicals.
These chemicals can contaminate land, water, and food. Overexposure to
dangerous chemicals can lead to serious health problems, including chronic
and fatal illness. Because children are very susceptible to the effects
of dangerous chemicals, it is important for manufacturers to toys and
other products that adhere to safety guidelines and restrictions.
Household Safety Tips
Secure all household chemicals, such as cleaning supplies and pool chemicals.
Make sure children cannot get to these dangerous chemicals. Be careful
to follow directions when using these products. Chemicals can cause injury
from fumes as well as direct contact. Look out for harmful chemicals in
everyday products, such as soap or children's toys. Long-term exposure
to some of these chemicals can cause serious illness and disease.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a harmful chemical, it is important that you
speak to a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer at our firm.
