In civil law, a "tort" refers to an act that resulted in harm to someone else due to a responsible party's negligence. A toxic tort is a type of personal injury case that involves exposure to a toxic substance that has caused harm to the plaintiff. These cases can arise from exposure to chemicals, pollutants, or other hazardous materials in the environment, the workplace, or consumer products. The substance may have caused physical injury, such as illnesses or chronic conditions, or property damage.
Toxic torts often involve complex scientific and medical evidence, as well as issues related to causation and responsibility for the exposure. As a result, these cases can be challenging and require experienced legal representation. In a toxic tort case, the injured party may seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, among other damages.
Exposure to toxic chemicals may happen years before symptoms arrive. Unfortunately, many people who suffer from fatal or incurable diseases do not think to consider their own history of exposure. For example, mesothelioma may not appear for up to 30 or 40 years after exposure to asbestos. If you have any of the following diseases, consider your own medical or occupational history, and call our firm.
