Corpus Christi Mass Tort Attorneys

Toxic Torts & Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals

The Bandas Law Firm offers a team of experienced Corpus Christi litigation attorneys who know how to deal with mass torts specifically. Toxic torts are litigation cases that cover exposure to harmful chemicals and are considered mass torts when numerous victims are involved, and cases are litigated together.

These cases can include medical cases, diseases, and injuries caused by exposure to:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Mold
  • Silica
  • Vinyl chloride

Whenever people are exposed to these products, they can become ill, and if that exposure was due to someone else’s negligence, then the victims will have a case against them.

If you have been injured or you have become ill due to exposure to toxic 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:

  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung cancer
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Silicosis
  • 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.
