Toxic Torts

Sometimes chemicals which were first thought to be safe are not.  Toxic torts are legal claims where the victim was exposed to a dangerous substance, examples of which are a pharmaceutical drug, pesticide or chemical, causing serious illness.

Sometimes exposure to the toxin can be through ingestion (eating or drinking), dermal (skin) or inhalation (breathing) in the dangerous substance.  Other times, the toxic substance can accidentally leak into the groundwater or be like a cloud in the air. Typically the exposure would be from:

  • Work – called an occupational exposure, such as asbestos or benzene
  • Pharmaceutical Drugs
  • Home – for example black mold
  • Consumer products – such as pesticides that cause unintended illness

Burnett Law Firm’s national toxic tort attorneys have extensive experience in standing up to manufacturing companies on behalf of those victims harmed by toxins

Lawsuits over Dangerous Chemical Exposure

Perhaps the most difficult part of a toxic tort is proving the exposure as well as the amount of exposure.  For some, remembering the exposure can also be difficult as the harm from a dangerous substance can occur years after the exposure, such as with asbestos claims.  In addition, oftentimes the manufacturer of the dangerous substance wants to argue that their substance did not cause the injury.

The experienced national toxic tort attorneys at Burnett Law Firm fight hard for their toxic tort victims.  We work closely with our clients to prove when exposure to the dangerous substance occurred as well as find witnesses to the exposure.  We also have worked with experts across the country to help prove that harmful substances caused our clients harm.  Burnett Law Firm can help people recover the compensation they deserve if they have been hurt by exposure to toxins.
