Toxic Tort Lawyer
A toxic tort is a type of personal injury lawsuit filed by a victim who suffered an injury or disease that was caused by exposure to harmful substances. People are regularly exposed to toxic chemicals or materials in a variety of ways and from a variety of products. They can also experience exposure in the home, at work and from the environment. Claims filed for asbestos exposure, for example, would be considered toxic torts.
A toxic tort claim alleges that exposure to a dangerous substance caused an injury or illness. These claims can be filed by individuals or on behalf of groups of people, which is known as a class action lawsuit. The most common types of toxic exposure claims involve occupational exposure, exposure in the home, and to consumer products.
