A toxic tort is a legal claim involving injuries to plaintiffs caused by exposure to toxic substances – such as a chemical, pesticide, or pharmaceutical drug. Toxic tort law is an essential area of tort litigation and serves as a means of justice for those who have suffered adverse health effects from chemicals or pollutants in the environment.

People can be exposed to these dangerous substances in a variety of situations and places. Many toxic tort cases arise either from exposure at work or from a nearby facility.

Occupational exposure cases are quite common due to the fact workers in the vast industrial industry are often chronically exposed to numerous harmful chemicals.

Exposure can stem from an explosion, leak, or inadequate policy and may cause harm to a person or a large group of people.

When harmful vapors are inhaled, they can cause serious short-term or long-term damage to an individual. Common diseases in toxic tort cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Asbestosis
  • Leukemia
  • Mesothelioma
  • Lymphoma
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • Lung Cancer
  • Respiratory Ailments
  • Skin Disorders
