What is a Toxic Tort?

A toxic tort is a legal claim made on the claim of exposure to a hazardous substance. We see many cases where an individual is looking to sue a company or manufacturer or chemicals, pesticides, or other pharmaceutical drugs.

The attorneys at the Truitt Law Offices are experienced in dealing with toxic tort cases and have a proven record of successfully defending our clients against frivolous toxic tort lawsuits.

Are Technological Advances Responsible for Some Lawsuits?

There have been quite a few advancements in technology, medicine, and dangerous chemicals. While many of these advances have benefited people, there can still be risks involved when someone is exposed.

Often chemicals, which are safe and effective, are used in claims by individuals who are looking to sue companies for injuries that were not a result of the products involved.

What New Litigation is Available for Toxic Torts?

As a result of these new chemicals and drugs becoming mainstream, there have been lawsuits focused specifically on alleged injuries from these chemicals and drugs. These lawsuits have become known as toxic tort litigation.

Many lawsuits have come against companies, manufacturers of chemicals and foods, employers, and other parties on behalf of both individuals and groups of people.

What Are Some Types of Toxic Tort Claims?

Since many people come in contact with these items, a few different claims come against companies, employers, and manufacturers. Some of these types of claims include:

  • Individual claims
  • Multi-party claims
  • Class action lawsuits
