The Joye Law Firm is currently investigating potential claims against the manufacturers of welding products – including welding rods, wires, and electrodes – for damages caused by exposure to manganese fumes. This potentially harmful exposure usually occurs during the process of steel-alloy welding and other steel melting activities. The process of heating or cutting steel can cause the release of manganese fumes. These fumes, if inhaled, can cause neurological damage. Prolonged exposure to these fumes can cause a condition called Manganism, a disorder very similar to Parkinson’s disease. Recently, medical studies indicate that exposure to manganese fumes due to welding has been associated with the early onset of Parkinson’s disease.

If you or anyone you know has had a six-month or longer history of exposure to welding fumes in close proximity on a full-time basis, the Joye Law Firm can assist you with a free evaluation to assess whether you have any medical problems consistent with Manganism and/or Parkinsonism. If the initial screening reveals such symptoms, we will then assist you with a referral to a neurologist specializing in movement disorders.
