Texas Toxic & Mass Tort Lawyer
The Bandas Law Firm offers a team of experienced litigation attorneys who know how to deal with mass torts specifically. There are numerous different toxic and mass tort cases that any quality attorney will understand and will be able to handle should you become a victim and need them. Toxic and mass torts are litigation cases that cover exposure to harmful chemicals when thousands of victims are involved. Often, these cases are litigated together and this creates toxic and mass torts. These cases can include medical cases, diseases, and injuries due to exposure to such things as:
- Vinyl Chloride
- A variety of other chemicals and minerals
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 can help you with your toxic or mass tort case.
Medical Illness Due to Exposure
Exposure to products and chemicals of this nature 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 manufacturer choices to put products on the market that contain toxins in them as well. For example, people who have come into contact with lead paint and certain types of solvents have become ill as well. 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 too.
State and Federal Statutes
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 because 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 due specifically 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.
If you have been exposed to certain types of toxins and chemicals, then you could have serious health effects. They could have lifelong consequences as well. You will need to contact the Bandas Law Firm so that we can go to work for you. First, we will need to determine if you have a case and that is why we offer a free case evaluation.
