Toxic Torts

Our toxic tort practice includes attorneys experienced in a wide variety of litigation. We handle cases involving claimed exposure to carcinogens, as well as a host of other toxic fibers, chemicals, and drugs. We represent manufacturers of industrial paints and solvents, pesticides, silica flour, and asbestos-containing products. We represent landlords in lead poisoning cases, and manufacturers of products that incorporate or produce toxic agents.

We have successfully defended against “junk science” claims and have defeated such theories by appropriate pre-trial motions. We also have experience defending novel theories of damages, such as chemically induced AIDS and fear of contracting cancer.
