This case involves a facilities repair worker who suffered permanent neurological damage due to alleged cyanide exposure at his workplace. At the time of the incident in question, the man was working with several other individuals at an industrial scale metal polishing facility. The workers were performing maintenance near some of the facility’s machinery, which used cyanide containing compounds to polish metal, when they began to feel extremely sick. At the hospital, doctors reported that the workers were exhibiting signs of acute cyanide poisoning, including weakness, headaches, and vertigo, as well as nausea and vomiting. While the plaintiff survived this exposure, he claims to have sustained a debilitating, permanent brain injury.
