Examples of Toxic Tort Claims

Toxic tort claims are based on the plaintiff's contention that he or she has suffered injury or illness due to hazardous chemical exposure. In many cases, they occur in the workplace, such as in industrial accidents, plant and refinery accidents and chemical plant accidents. Workplace chemical exposure may also take place on a more gradual basis, such as when the worker has to handle toxic substances such as solvents containing benzene or works in building that contains asbestos insulation.

In addition to incidents occurring in the workplace, it is also possible to file a toxic tort claim based on exposure occurring in the home, such as when construction materials contain formaldehyde or pesticide-contaminated food. Furthermore, toxic tort litigation is possible when a chemical spill, fracking or other circumstances have resulted in property contamination that poisons the water supply or otherwise results in a blighted property. However it happens, toxic chemical exposure has the potential to cause serious and life-changing illnesses, some of which may be debilitating and even fatal. If you or a loved one has suffered this type of injury, you should not have to pay the price for the negligence of those responsible.
