Arsenic Poisoning Claims

Exposure to arsenic will cause death in acute cases. In smaller doses it will can cause a variety of serious injuries or illnesses. These can include damage to the skin, peripheral nerves, liver, cardiovascular system, blood and the respiratory system.

Arsenic is found in industry in various forms. It is also a constituent of the gas arsine which is used in the electronics industry. Most arsenic is used in pesticides and herbicides, but it can also be found in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries

If it occurs at work, there are a number of regulations which can apply, including the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations.

These claims can also arise outside the workplace, for example where toxic substances are incinerated and there are inadequate controls to prevent the escape of arsine into the atmosphere.

If you think you have been exposed to arsenic or arsine, early medical intervention is essential. A urine test will determine whether there has been any recent exposure.
