Toxic Torts and Environmental Litigation
A toxic tort is a particular type of personal injury lawsuit in which the plaintiff claims that exposure to a chemical caused the plaintiff's injury or disease. People are typically exposed to toxic chemicals (such as benzene, hexavalent chromium, silica, and others) from commercial, industrial and consumer products in the environment, on even construction materials in the home and workplace. This practice area can cover such cases as groundwater contamination and remediation, as well. Most toxic tort cases arise from occupational exposures. Thousands of toxic chemicals are used in industry, and workers can experience a variety of toxic injuries.
