Toxic TortsToxic tort lawsuits relate to claims that a person was exposed to a chemical or toxin which caused injury. Our toxic tort practice has included cases involving asbestos, welding rods, manganese and benzene exposures, water contamination, indoor air quality, latex gloves, lead and mold contamination.
To properly defend such lawsuits it is necessary to conduct a thorough investigation of the allegations raised by the Plaintiff. This includes a site inspection of the premises at issue and obtaining statements from all relevant witnesses. It is also essential to obtain all of plaintiff's medical records in order to determine the exact nature of their alleged injuries.
