During the 1990s, there was a boom in the manufacturing of silicon computer chips in the Austin area. Companies manufactured these chips in clean rooms that involved the use of glycol ethers and other noxious chemicals. Workers in these clean rooms were exposed to the fumes of the glycol ethers. These then caused a wide range of injuries to the workers and birth defects in their children.
Our Austin personal injury lawyer represents injured Texans, including workers, children and their families. Since 1978, our personal injury law firm has provided professional and aggressive legal representation to those who need it. Schedule a free consultation with our firm. We will then let you know if you have a legitimate chance of receiving a verdict or settlement in your favor.
Effects of Clean Room Chemicals
Glycol ethers are commonly used as cleaning compounds and manufacturing solvents. Common effects of exposure to these toxic chemicals include:
- Reduced fertility
- Damage to testes
- Birth defects
The Environmental Protection Agency states that long-term exposure to glycol ethers could result in severe neurological effects.
Birth Defects Are Lifelong Injuries
Many of these birth defects will have a tragic impact on the life of the child. Birth injuries associated with glycol ethers include:
- Missing or deformed limbs
- Brain defects
- Heart defects
- Spina bifida
