Toxic Tort

If you or a loved one is suffering from a disease or injury as a result of exposure to hazardous substances, you might be entitled to compensation for your losses. Here at Cueria Law Firm LLC, we specialize in toxic tort litigation, guiding you through the complex legal process to obtain the compensation you deserve.

What is Toxic Tort?

A toxic tort is a specific type of personal injury lawsuit that involves harm caused by exposure to dangerous substances, such as chemical pollutants, toxic mold, pharmaceutical drugs, or industrial toxins. These harmful substances can lead to serious health issues including cancer, lung disease, neurological disorders, and more.

When a person or entity is responsible for the exposure leading to these health issues, they may be held liable. That’s where our team of experts at Cueria Law Firm LLC comes in. We work tirelessly to ensure those responsible are held accountable.

Situations Leading to Toxic Torts

Toxic tort claims can arise in various scenarios, some of which include:

  • Occupational Exposure: Industrial workers are often exposed to toxic substances without adequate protection. This could be constant exposure over extended periods or high-intensity exposure over a short period. Examples include exposure to asbestos and benzene.
  • Pharmaceutical Drugs: Certain drugs can have harmful side effects leading to serious health conditions. If these side effects were unexpected and not communicated to the patients, they might have a valid toxic tort claim.
  • Home Exposure: Exposure to hazardous substances can occur within homes. This includes toxic mold, lead in paint or pipes, and contaminated water supply.
  • Consumer products: Certain consumer products, such as pesticides or cleaning agents, can contain dangerous chemicals that lead to health issues.

Who Can Be Held Liable?

There are numerous potential defendants in a toxic tort case. These may include:

  • Manufacturers of chemical substances
  • Pharmaceutical companies or drug manufacturers
  • Companies responsible for storing or disposing of chemical waste
  • Property owners or landlords whose property exposed tenants to toxins

At Cueria Law Firm LLC, we thoroughly investigate each case to identify all possible defendants, ensuring maximum compensation for your suffering.

Proving a Toxic Tort Claim

Proving a toxic tort claim can be complex. However, our experienced attorneys are well-versed with the intricacies of such cases. Typically, we must establish the following:

  • The substance in question is indeed hazardous
  • The plaintiff was exposed to this hazardous substance
  • The defendant is responsible for the plaintiff’s exposure
  • The exposure has directly led to harm or illness in the plaintiff

The Challenges of Causation

Establishing causation — the link between the exposure and the harm suffered — is often the most challenging aspect of a toxic tort case. This is due to the nature of toxic exposure, where symptoms or illnesses might not manifest until years after the exposure.

However, with our experienced team and network of medical experts, we strive to gather compelling scientific evidence to establish causation, helping you secure the compensation you deserve.

Compensation in Toxic Tort Cases

Victims of toxic exposure may be entitled to compensation for various damages including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium

Our team works diligently to ensure all damages are accurately calculated and compensated for.
