Toxic Tort Lawsuits


A Toxic Tort is a legal claim for harm caused by exposure to a dangerous substance – such as a pharmaceutical drug, pesticide, or chemical.  Most toxic tort injuries arise from (1) occupational exposure - when workers are exposed to toxic materials on the job, from (2) pharmaceutical drugs – when prescribed drugs cause unexpected side effects, from (3) exposure in the home – when people breath or ingest harmful substances in their home such as asbestos or mold, or from (4) consumer products – when people use products, such as pesticides, that cause unintended injuries.
