Many consumers understand the terms "toxic" and "tort" but are confused about their meaning when they are put together. Generally, a toxic tort is a type of personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit involving exposure to a chemical or similar material.
Toxic tort cases can arise in a range of circumstances, including:
- Exposure at home (often from home building materials)
- Exposure at work (often in industrial settings or from asbestos)
- Exposure at a hospital, (usually involving defective drugs)
- Exposure in the greater environment (for instance, from exposure to pesticides or from ground water contamination)

A Long Track Record of Winning High-Value Awards in Personal Injury Cases
When companies put pollutants and dangerous chemical products into the air, water and marketplace, the government, with its limited resources, is often powerless to intervene quickly and effectively. Politics can also play a part; often, politicians claim that science doesn't back up claims of danger and injury.
We can work with experts to investigate claims and work to prove claims of causal links between chemicals and subsequent injuries. Our record shows our ability to argue persuasively for needed and deserved high-value compensation — we have won awards totaling $20 million and $30 million.
