Every day, we rely on the products in our homes and workplaces to make our lives better. We place our trust in the items on grocery store shelves, in the cars we drive, and even the foods we eat. Unfortunately, some of these items—and the people who made them—are not worthy of that trust. Millions of people are injured each year as a result of dangerous or defective products.
Many of these people will never fully recover.

What Is a Toxic Tort?
If a victim is poisoned, infected, or injured by exposure to a dangerous substance, he or she may file a special kind of product liability case known as a toxic tort. A toxic tort allows victims to hold someone liable for harm caused by a chemical, mineral, drug, or other substance that led to serious illness or death.
Some of the toxic tort claims our law firm handles include:
- Asbestos. Asbestos was used in a variety of industrial and consumer products before it was discovered to cause cancer. Our attorneys have handled thousands of asbestos cases over the past 40 years, fighting for victims who have suffered mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other life-altering injuries.
- Benzene. This chemical commonly used in manufacturing processes has been designated a human carcinogen, causing some people to suffer a variety of cancers including acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We have helped several victims and their families who were injured by toxic exposure to benzene.
No Matter Where You Are, We Can Give You the Counsel You Need to Recover
There are many advantages to filing a claim against the manufacturer of a dangerous product. The company may be forced to pay for the victim’s medical bills and lost wages, compensate family members for the wrongful death of a relative, and even pay punitive damages as punishment for causing harm. In addition, a successful case may include an order from the judge—such as stronger warning labels or steep fines—that prohibit the manufacturer from hurting others in the future.
