Not all injuries leave marks on the body. You may experience a personal injury in California which affects not your body but your mind, and the damage it causes may be at least as great as that caused by a physical injury. Nevertheless, it can be difficult to prove an emotional distress injury in court due to the lack of objective evidence such as medical imaging or bodily scarring.
Earlier in August, a NASA satellite captured images of smoke hovering over central California. Air quality districts are warning people to stay inside. Sports, summer camps and other outdoor activities are canceled until further notice. Toxic smoke continues to cause major problems in communities.
Firefighters can face many risks. This includes risks of exposure to toxic chemicals. Today’s firefighters can encounter a wide range of toxic fumes on the job. One thing contributing to this is that today’s furniture contains all kinds of materials, finishes, glues and resins that can generate such fumes when burned.
