With carcinogens (chemicals or other substances known to cause cancer), there is no excuse for negligence or wrongful acts that lead to workplace exposure. Industrial workers, no matter their line of work or job duties, deserve to be protected from contact with hazardous toxins that could cause them to fall ill with life-threatening illnesses like cancer. Companies like Westlake Chemical are required to put the safety of workers, communities, and consumers first by preventing exposure through proper training, safety practices, protective gear, and properly maintained equipment, tools, and machinery. Any failures on their part can jeopardize the very lives of their employees, contract workers, and many others.
Arnold & Itkin is representing numerous cancer victims from this occupational exposure, and we look forward to getting answers and justice for them and their families.
We filed this lawsuit in Harris County, Texas.
