Cleanroom Birth Defects in Texas
What is a cleanroom?
The so-called "cleanroom" used for creating computer chips was
a dangerous place to work. Chemicals used in the production of the chips
were known by computer chip manufacturers to cause miscarriages and birth
defects. In the early 1980s, warnings were issued concerning the dangers
of being exposed to these chemicals and the risk of birth defects. This
information was not made known to employees working in cleanrooms and
they were continuously exposed to these toxic chemicals. Many couples
have had children with birth defects, not knowing that there was any link
between their work and the condition of their child.
If you work or have worked in a cleanroom and have had a child born with
birth defects, talk to a
Dallas personal injury attorney at our firm to discuss filing a claim for damages. We can help you determine
the validity of your claim and its possible value.
How Injuries and Birth Defects Are Caused
The chemicals used in cleanrooms corrupt the process of cell division and
create mutation. This is particularly harmful to developing embryos and
fetuses. The manufacturers of microchips who did not warn their employees
of the health risks or take effective steps to protect their employees
from the harmful effects of such exposure should be held accountable.
The families of these children born with birth defects have carried the
burden of caring for these children for many years.
