Attorneys in our Toxic Tort and Environmental Tort Practice Group represent numerous manufacturers, suppliers, contractors, and other business entities in cases involving claims for personal injury, wrongful death, future medical monitoring, or property damage arising from exposure to allegedly dangerous products or materials. This practice group has extensive litigation experience and commonly handles large, complex cases with catastrophic injuries.

We handle the full range of cases involving environmentally caused injury or damage, and we have expertise in the difficult scientific, medical, and legal issues presented in such cases. We have substantial experience in litigation involving alleged injuries from asbestos, silica, mold, lead paint, diesel fuel, welding rods, pesticides, toxic chemicals, and orthotic and prosthetic devices.

With claimants commonly litigating claims as a group, the firm is well-staffed to represent clients facing liabilities asserted by thousands of parties. The firm commonly staffs cases with a team, consisting of attorneys and staff to facilitate prompt evaluation of each case, and to process the often voluminous records generated in each case. Our handling is geared to facilitate early resolution of a case, and to obtain dismissals if a required element of proof is absent.

Attorneys in the Toxic Tort and Environmental Practice Group have published articles on toxic tort exposures, and have lectured both to our clients and members of the bar on toxic and environmental torts.
