Despite the many safety regulations that are in place to protect workers, consumers and the general public, toxic chemicals and materials are still all around us. Unfortunately, sometimes political interests trump safety issues, and powerful, well-funded companies are allowed to continue to pollute the air, water and materials that we're exposed to every day. When someone files a lawsuit as the result of an injury or death due to exposure to one of these materials or chemicals, it's called a "toxic tort."
If you initiate or participate in a toxic tort, you want a Chicago-area law firm with experience in this type of complex litigation. At The Jasmer Law Firm, we have a long record of successfully holding large companies accountable for exposing people to dangerous substances. We've helped our clients win awards as high as $30 million.
We believe in the importance of toxic torts not only because they provide needed compensation to our clients who have been exposed to dangerous substances in their home, workplace or the environment, but because they help make the world a safer place for everyone.
We know how to fight back against those who try to claim that there is no link between a particular material and someone's illness. We work with experts who can provide evidence of these links.
The list of toxic materials is long and constantly expanding as new materials are developed and causal links are proven. Here are just some examples:
-- Asbestos-- Atrazine-- BPA-- Benzene-- Beryllium-- Perchlorate-- Pesticides-- Silica-- Teflon-- Welding Rods
We handle our toxic tort cases on a contingency basis. That means that you pay no attorney fee unless and until you receive compensation. We also offer free initial consultations. If you believe that you or a loved one has been harmed by a toxic substance, call us or contact us online to discuss your case and find out how we can help you.
