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 severe 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.
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.
