Helping Injured HAZMAT Workers in Philadelphia and Throughout Pennsylvania

Protecting the Rights of Those Who Work With Dangerous Substances Every Day

Some industries are simply more dangerous than others, and employees who work with hazardous materials are at risk of serious injury simply because of what they do. Yet without HAZMAT workers, no one would be truly safe. They remove the dangerous materials from our living spaces and offices, ensure that dangerous chemicals are transported safely across the country and ensure that medical waste and other such dangers are properly disposed of. They risk occupational exposure every day, along with the dangers ever other industry faces when its team is constantly on the move.

At Larry Pitt & Associates, we are proud to represent employees whose jobs put them in contact with HAZMAT every single day. When you work with a Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer from our firm, you are working with a lawyer who truly understands what challenges you face, and what help you will need after a serious injury or medical condition has affected how you live. We fight for your future, so you can focus on your recovery.

What Constitutes HAZMAT?

According to the U.S. General Services Administration, hazardous materials are “Any item or chemical which is a ‘health hazard’ or ‘physical hazard,’ including the following:

  • Chemicals that are carcinogens, toxic or highly toxic agents, reproductive toxins, irritants, corrosives, hepatotoxins, nephrotoxins, neurotoxins, agents that act on the hematopoietic system, and agents that damage the lungs, skin, eyes, or mucous membranes;
  • Chemicals that are combustible liquids, compressed gases, explosives, flammable liquids, flammable solids, organic peroxides, oxidizers, pyrophorics, unstable (reactive) or water-reactive; and
  • Chemicals that, in the course of normal handling, use or storage, may produce or release dusts, gases, fumes, vapors, mists or smoke having any of the above characteristics.”

HAZMAT workers are people who handle the removal, cleanup and transportation of these types of goods. Whether you remove asbestos from old buildings, work in plant that bottles cleaning supplies, transport gasoline across the country or work with fertilizers or pesticides on a farm – or any number of possible jobs involving dangerous chemicals and substances – you are a HAZMAT worker.

Common HAZMAT-Related Injuries

Philadelphia and its surrounding areas have a large number of HAZMAT workers because we have a large number of varied industries. Our legal team is proud to represent union and non-union employees who work with dangerous chemicals and substances, resulting in:

  • Broken bones
  • Cancers
  • Chemical burns
  • Environmental exposure, such as heat stress or cold stress
  • Exposure to bodily fluids
  • Loss of vision
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Overexertion
  • Poisoning
  • Radiation exposure
  • Respiratory illnesses such as farmer’s lung, mesothelioma or chronic asthma
  • Skin diseases
  • Strains and sprains
  • Traumatic brain injuries

“I want to thank you for your excellent representation”

"I want to thank you for your excellent representation of me and keeping your word. You asked me to hold on and things would be resolved in the Spring, and they were. Ariana’s graduation was beautiful and I was able to give her everything I wanted, including her class ring.

Also and not forgotten, Luba! She was so patient and attentive to me even when I was hysterical. Ha! Ha!"
