ENVIRONMENTAL & TOXIC TORT INJURY LAWSUITS
Hazardous pollutants or toxins can take years to appear in the form of physical injuries or illnesses. For example, a family member who works at construction sites and is inadvertently exposed to asbestos can eventually develop cancer or another life-threatening disease. Or, a child exposed to the toxins at home while growing up can suffer pulmonary or even brain damage during their early life. Unfortunately, these are just some devastating events millions of Americans face daily because of environmental toxin exposure.
If you suffered a personal injury due to environmental damage, do not just go at it alone with an insurance company. The litigation attorneys in our firm have years of experience fighting for injured victims. Contact one of our environmental and personal injury attorneys today to learn more about how we can help. Who is Liable for Your Injuries?
Environmental Exposure: The injured person must show proof of being exposed to environmental hazards. These include, but are not limited to, soil, groundwater, contaminated air, and other variables, such as lead paint or asbestos. In some cases, a specialist can be consulted to determine the certainty. If you were not aware/unable to avoid exposure: Along with evidence of exposure, a victim should be able to show that they could not avoid coming in contact with a dangerous substance and were not aware that it was present in their home or neighborhood. On the other hand, if they had advanced knowledge of the toxic substances and knew they were at risk for exposure, holding someone else responsible for their damages might prove challenging.
You were not a Cause of Environmental Risk: Victims should not be the ones who created a hazardous environment. If they were directly responsible, then the only person responsible for their injuries and those of others would be them. If Defendant is Liable for Your Injuries: There should be evidence to show Defendant is responsible for your injuries. How Can An Attorney Help: Insurers, or big business, might not have your best interests in mind regarding the safety of you and your loved ones.
When you go to make your insurance company claims, you are denied, or they provide you with a lowball estimate of your extensive damages — this is where we come in. When you hire us, our team works on your case. First, your lawyer and a group of lawyers will collect evidence and consult with experts to develop the most robust case. Your lawyer will then negotiate out-of-court with the Defendant to obtain total and fair compensation.
Loss of Consortium: Surviving family members can seek damages for loss of companionship and any care they might have received from the victims. Pain and suffering: This is intended to compensate a victim for any physical pain caused by their injuries, along with emotional pain such as fear, depression, anxiety, and other mental distress they might experience.
Lost wages/earning capacity: There’s a chance that an illness or injury compelled you to miss work. This could make it so that you can work less than usual or stop working. If you cannot make as much money as before the injury, you can seek compensation for diminished earning capacity. Medical expenses: Compensation is awarded for medical visits, hospital stays, transportation, physical therapy, assistance devices, prescription medications, and other costs related to your injuries, past or future.
However, your lawyer is ready to represent you in court if negotiations fail. Can I afford to hire an attorney? Our team believes strongly in the need for everyone to have access to an affordable attorney, regardless of their financial circumstances.
Our attorneys operate on a contingency basis, meaning there are no upfront fees, and you pay us nothing unless we win your case; any fees we charge are deducted from your settlement, never from your pocket. The lawyers in our network know how hard it is to regain financial stability after suffering a personal injury. For years, our attorneys have helped victims of environmental injuries like yours obtain the compensation they deserve.

The Law May Limit the Time You Have to File a Toxic Tort Claim
Under the legal rule known as “the statute of limitations,” any claim stemming from an environmental injury claim must be filed within a specific period of time, otherwise, the injured person or their family’s legal claims are barred, and their right to bring suit is lost for all time.
