Creosote Exposure in Chicago, IL

Creosote is a tar byproduct used for a variety of purposes, but most commonly as a wood preservative and pesticide. It is, however, also a toxic chemical and carcinogen that has been linked to skin and scrotum cancer, as well as lung irritation, vision problems, sun sensitivity, kidney and liver issues, and even death. Workers who have had long-term creosote exposure face an exceptionally high risk of developing health conditions, but others--even children--can inhale creosote or absorb it through the skin after touching contaminated soil. If you've been diagnosed with a condition related to creosote exposure, talk to an attorney or lawyer immediately. Under your state's personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and suffering.
