Solvent Exposure Claims

Many people work in settings where they are exposed to solvents, and even when all the proper precautions are taken to protect against harmful exposure, employees can still be at risk of illness. Solvents are used to dilute or dissolve other substances, and many of them contain chemicals like benzene or toluene, both of which are hazardous to health.

If you’ve worked with solvents and have developed an illness as a result, JMW Solicitors can help you to claim the compensation you are entitled to.
