Toxic Torts

Z Toxic Torts
The personal injury called “toxic tort” occurs when someone suffers injury as a result of being exposed to dangerous (toxic) chemicals, substances or materials. The most common toxic tort cases involve those in which the injured party was exposed to toxic chemicals at their work-place or by taking toxic pharmaceutical drugs.

Work-related or occupational toxic tort cases occur more often than any other because industrial workers are often exposed for longer periods of time to toxic chemicals as compared to consumers or residents.

Asbestos Exposure and Toxicity

Asbestos is a naturally-occurring material that was and still is commonly used in construction.  It was often used as insulation because of its strength and resistance to heat and fire.

While it worked well for this purpose, it was soon discovered that long-term exposure especially inhalation of the asbestos fibers caused respiratory diseases, such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.  Cases brought by people who developed these types of diseases after being exposed to asbestos are called toxic tort cases.

Diseases caused by exposure to toxic materials, such as asbestos, can be life changing.  If you have been injured as a result of exposure to any toxic material or chemical you may be entitled to compensation.  The experienced personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Adrian Crane can help you file a personal injury case against the parties, who are responsible.  You may be awarded monetary damages which will compensate you for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering as well as any other losses you may have suffered.

Even though environmental or toxic tort law cases often cause tragic consequences, they are difficult personal injury cases to prove.  One challenge is proving causation.  Another challenge is that toxic tort cases are almost always brought against large corporations and therefore defended with substantial resources.  The experienced personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Adrian Crane however, can help you every step of the way.

Cases brought by people injured by pharmaceutical companies, drug manufacturers, and in some cases, doctors who prescribed these dangerous drugs are also called toxic tort cases.

These claims differ from medical malpractice cases and in addition to being toxic tort claims are also called products liability cases. The defective products involved in these cases are the drugs themselves and the way in which they are prescribed.  As you probably know from the many TV commercials warning the public about various pharmaceutical drugs that have caused injury and death, the dangerous nature of these drugs is often only discovered after they have been on the market for some time.  Recalls by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of these dangerous drugs, are often too late to have prevented many injuries and deaths.
