Texas Toxic Torts Attorneys

Toxic tort refers to an area of law that encompasses personal injuries caused by exposure to dangerous substances including poisonous chemicals and/or hazardous forms of energy. Toxic tort litigation has increased immensely in the last few years because of heightened environmental awareness and a wider knowledge of health risks associated with certain hazardous substances. This area of law is important because it forces corporations to comply with safety regulations, thus reducing the risk of injury or death.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious harm resulting from exposure to a dangerous substance, you may be eligible to file a toxic tort to seek compensation for your losses. Recoverable damages may include past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, punitive damages, and more. An experienced toxic tort attorney at Williams & Brown LLP will discuss your legal rights and options with you and help you get the compensation you deserve. Please contact our office today at (254) 741-6200 for a FREE consultation.

Dangerous Substances

Hazardous materials are used often in building construction or in a number of other workplace operations. Some of the most common toxic substances include:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Lead-based paint
  • Mercury
  • Pesticides
  • More

Toxic torts may also involve pharmaceutical products, fertilizers, or other products that contain or spread dangerous substances.

Effects of Toxic Substance Exposure

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population has been exposed to some sort of toxic substance over the last 10 years. Injuries from exposure to toxic and dangerous substances can include:

  • Cancer (lung, bladder, brain, kidney, leukemia, lymphoma and skin cancer)
  • Brain Damage
  • Birth defects
  • Organ Damage
  • Death
