Toronto Mercury Poisoning Lawyer
Mercury is a colorless, odorless chemical that is highly toxic to humans who have high degrees of exposure. Traditionally, mercury was used in a number of household items, goods, and substances. Since its discovery as a toxic agent, mercury has been removed from most items. However, there are still cases in which property owners improperly dispose of waste materials and carelessly expose residents of a building to dangerous levels of mercury in certain objects, appliances, and substances. It is very easy for people to come into contact with dangerous levels of mercury and, unfortunately, even brief exposure raises a variety of harmful health problems that are often expensive to treat.
