Toxic Tort

Toxic tort claims involve harm caused by exposure to a dangerous substance. Dangerous substances may include pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, chemicals, or other technological, manufacturing, or medical substances. Toxic tort claims typically arise in the home, at work, from contact with pharmaceutical drugs, or with consumer products. To prove that toxic tort has occurred, the plaintiff (the person suing) must show the following three things: (1) that the substance was dangerous, (2) that the plaintiff was exposed to the dangerous substance, and (3) that the dangerous substance caused harm to the plaintiff.
