Can I File a Chemical Exposure Lawsuit?

Can I File a Chemical Exposure Lawsuit?

At Daspit Law Firm, we have firsthand experience representing individuals who suffered life-altering injuries caused by chemical exposure. We proudly help clients of all backgrounds take action against manufacturers, oil drilling companies, and other powerful corporations so they can recover maximum compensation for their injuries and medical expenses.

If you have been exposed to a harmful chemical that resulted in a serious injury, then you can file a toxic tort or chemical exposure lawsuit to seek compensation. Chemical exposure lawsuits are usually filed as a worker’s compensation lawsuit or as a personal injury lawsuit. Multiple people are often injured in chemical accidents that result in exposure. When this occurs, a group of people who suffered similar injuries from the same source can file a mass tort lawsuit against the same defendant.

The plaintiff(s) must prove they were exposed to a particular chemical and show that exposure was the cause of their injuries. The plaintiff(s) also need to show the defendant has a legal obligation to pay compensation based on any of the following legal theories:

  • Breach of Warranty: Products sold to consumers are supposed to come with an explicit, written warranty or an implied, unwritten warranty that the product is reasonably safe to use for its intended purpose. If the explicit or implied promise is broken, then the company can be held be liable for damages.
  • Strict Liability: If you followed all of the instructions on the product and still suffered an injury, then the manufacturer, distributor, or seller can be held liable for insufficient warnings or design flaws.
  • Negligence: If chemical exposure was the result of an accident, then the plaintiff must show the defendant owed a duty of care that was breached and resulted in harm.

Although states have a statute of limitations that usually restrict personal injury claims to one or two years, there is a discovery rule for chemical exposure lawsuits that applies when the individual is diagnosed or discovered symptoms of illness from exposure.
