Birmingham Mercury Poisoning Lawyers
Mercury is the only metal that is in a liquid state in normal pressure and temperatures. It was used in a wide variety of scientific instruments including thermometers and barometers until it was found to be a dangerous element that is highly toxic to humans. While it has been phased out of use for the most part, mercury is still used in some types of fluorescent lamps and is commonly found in fish.
