A toxic injury or toxic tort is the type of injury that results from exposure to a toxic or dangerous chemical or substance, hazardous waste, pesticide, toxic mold, lead poising, and occupational chemical exposure.
The exposure can occur at a work site where the defendant could be the seller, distributor or manufacturer of the product. A toxic injury could also occur around your home, such as an injury resulting from a contaminated well or lead paint poisoning.
Toxic Tort Claims
Most toxic injury claims become part of a class action lawsuit, where a group of people seek compensation for injuries or illnesses. One of the more common class action toxic tort claim has to do with asbestos exposure. An individual may also file a toxic tort case, such as carbon monoxide poisoning or mold infestation.
The challenge of toxic injury cases has to do with causation. In most cases, it may be difficult to find the true source of the substance or chemical that caused an injury, especially since most illnesses and injuries may not become obvious until years down the line. The case also requires a knowledgeable toxic injury lawyer who understands how to eliminate intervening factors to prove the most important element of the case: the defendant’s chemical or product is the source of the plaintiff’s injuries.
