Workers Who Weld Can Develop Nervous System Disorders And Disability

South Carolina welders and others exposed to welding fumes for a prolonged period of time can develop nervous system disorders and damage as well as early onset of Parkinson’s disease. If any employee is injured by these fumes they have a right to file a South Carolina workers’ compensation claim and recover medical treatment, temporary weekly disability benefits and potentially long term disability benefits. The process of heating and/or cutting steel can cause the release of manganese fumes which can cause these injuries and disability to the worker. Many law firms, including The Christmas Law Firm are currently investigating potential claims against the manufacturers of welding products for injuries caused by exposure to welding fumes.

If you or anyone you know has had twelve (12) months or more exposure to welding fumes you should contact your family doctor in South Carolina to be tested to determine if you have any disability or long term impairments from exposure to these fumes. If your doctor advises you that you do have medical problems consistent with nervous system disorders and/or Parkinsonism as a result of your exposure, you should contact an attorney to represent you with your job injury claim. Your job injury attorney can also assist you in finding a medical specialist in your area to help diagnose and treat these medical conditions.
