A toxic tort is any substance or chemical that can cause harm to an individual through skin contact, inhalation, or ingestion. Individuals can be exposed to toxic torts almost anywhere, including their own home or their place of business. Those with especially dangerous occupations, such as construction workers, are more prone to being exposed to toxic torts. Law firms throughout the country are dedicated to helping individuals receive compensation if they have been harmed by a toxic tort due to the negligence of another party.
Examples of Toxic Torts include but are not limited to:
- Industrial Solvents
- Endocrine Disrupters
- Lead Paint
Toxic torts can cause serious injuries and health problems, and even death in some cases. The injuries that can result from being exposed to toxic torts can take a long time to show up. It can take years, even decades, before someone realizes that they are sick from being exposed to these toxic torts. If you feel your current health problems are from being exposed to toxic torts many years, our lawyers can help. Speak with lawyers in your area today!
For those that have been injured in toxic tort cases, proving the case beyond a reasonable doubt is not required, which is something needed in other cases, such as criminal cases. Instead, it is required to prove that the claims are more likely to be true, than false. Toxic tort litigation can be a somewhat complex issue so it is in the best interest of any injured individuals to contact lawyers in their area regarding their legal situation.
