products, then contact the Bandas Law Firm. We may be able to help you
with your toxic or mass tort case.
Medical Illness Due to Toxic Exposure
Exposure to hazardous products and chemicals can result in a variety of
different long-term health conditions (many of which can be fatal). Some
of these medical conditions include:
- Lung cancer
- Autoimmune disease
- Pulmonary obliterans
There are also other latent diseases that can be directly connected to
exposure. Many people are exposed to chemicals due to their workplace,
and this means their employer could be held liable if the proper safety
precautions were not taken.
In addition to exposure to chemicals that are already known to be toxic
such as asbestos, there are toxic and mass torts in connection to manufacturers
who put products on the market that contain toxins. For example, people
who have come into contact with lead paint and certain types of solvents
have become ill. Because the manufacturer of the products put the items
on the market, they could be held liable. In the case of lead paint, building
owners who do not have it removed could be held liable as well.
State & Federal Statutes Pertaining to Toxic Torts
Most toxic and mass torts will involve laws on a state and federal level.
For that reason, you will need attorneys who are thoroughly experienced
in these statutes as well as in tort law. You cannot turn to just any
attorney for this type of representation, as it is very different from
any other type of case.
Your mass tort attorney will need to show that there was negligence involved
and will need to show that your medical conditions were caused specifically
due to exposure to those chemicals, whether you were at work or not. Additionally,
your attorney will have to link this to other cases against the manufacturer
or owner. This is the whole purpose of the mass torts. They are not litigated
alone, and you will be in the company of many other victims of the exposure,
which can significantly strengthen your case.
