If you think you have been exposed to toluene or a related substance, early medical intervention is essential.

If you are unlucky enough to suffer an illness, disease or injury as a result such exposure, it is possible that you may be able to bring a claim for damages, otherwise known as compensation.

Evidence of exposure to toluene

Detailed evidence will be necessary to establish that the exposure you suffered is capable of causing the injury complained of, that it did in fact cause your injury, that there was a foreseeable risk of such injury occurring and that the person or body responsible was negligent or in breach of statutory duty in allowing or causing the leak or discharge to occur. This will require a considerable body of expert evidence from technical experts in different fields.

If you believe that you are suffering an illness, disease or injury as a result of something in the environment, make sure that you seek medical advice and that your treating doctors are made aware of your belief / suspicion of the cause and keep details of all doctors visited and treatments, and for any injury related expenses.
