Toxic tort litigation has grown as we come to have a better understanding of our environment and its effects on our health. Unfortunately, many toxic tort claims are not brought until the victims have been exposed to the harmful chemicals for several years.
Toxic tort lawsuits may involve injuries such as:
- Skin disease
- Brain or nerve damage
Toxic tort lawsuits may involve an individual or entire community’s exposure to harmful chemicals. In other cases, a class action lawsuit may be brought. Groundwater pollution is a common issue in toxic tort claims.
Toxic tort claims usually involve an expert witness who is able to link the harmful chemical exposure to the specific illness the victim demonstrates. Toxic tort litigation can be very complex. If you believe you have suffered an injury as a result of toxic exposure, you should contact an experienced toxic tort attorney in your area to evaluate your claim.
