While there are policies and laws in place to protect people and the environment, large organizations continue to pollute and contaminate the environment around them. These companies negligently handle their chemical waste by poisoning the air, soil, water, and wildlife. In many cases, this pollution puts everyone’s lives and livelihoods at risk. In some cases, toxic exposure comes in the form of unsafe work environments for employees or exposure to toxic materials through consumer products.
Often, the waste that these companies distribute poses a serious health risk to thousands of people. Unfortunately, countless individuals lose their lives to toxic exposure and environmental hazards. Those who survive are often left with long-term health complications that drastically reduce their quality of life. Whether from toxic exposure through dangerous products or environmental hazards, these companies should be held responsible for their actions.
These cases are incredibly complex. They can take the form of a toxic tort, product liability, or occupational injury disease claims. To ensure you recover the damages you deserve, you need the help of a trusted toxic exposure attorney on your side.

Types of Toxic Exposure Cases
As we mentioned earlier, these cases can occur in various situations. In some, a company negligently dumps their toxic waste, polluting the air, soil, and water around them. Others involve workers who suffered prolonged exposure due to working in an unsafe environment. And in some, products, such as makeup and toys, contain dangerous products that threaten the lives of the consumer.
Our team of attorneys has experience handling many of these cases, including those that involve:
- Chemical exposure
- Toxic contamination exposure
- Inhalation exposure
- Asbestos exposure
- Benzene exposure

While these kinds of exposures can lead to a wide array of minor short-term health issues (such as throat irritation, trouble breathing, temporary vision loss, and more), they can also develop into long-term health concerns, including:
- Burns and disfigurement
- Organ damage or failure
- Weakening of the immune system
- Development of cancer and other life-threatening diseases
- Development of allergies and asthma
