Toxic Torts & Environmental Law
A toxic tort is a particular type of personal injury lawsuit in which it is alleged that the plaintiff was harmed by exposure to one or more chemicals. This exposure typically comes from chemicals found in pharmaceuticals, consumer products, or in the environment. Most toxic tort cases arise from exposure to pharmaceutical drugs or occupational contact. Still, they can also result from exposure to environmental toxins in or near the home or workplace.
Environmental injury occurs when environmental toxins harm people in the air or drinking water. In recent years, personal injury and environmental lawyers have been filing an increasing number of environmental toxic tort cases related to hazards like gas leaks, mercury, lead, asbestos, benzene, and common pesticides.
