Toxic substances can injure and kill people, animals, and plants alike. Toxic molds, contaminated water, asbestos, silicone breast implants, and lead paint are common examples of toxic substances that can maim or kill unsuspecting victims.
For decades, the Harrison Davis trial attorneys have assisted victims of toxic torts near our two offices in Beaumont and Waco, Texas. Today, however, our trial attorneys represent toxic exposure victims throughout the country. Our team is dedicated to understanding the complexities and legal nuances at play in toxic exposure cases. Our goal is not only to achieve maximum recovery for our clients, but to ensure that their entire communities are relieved from unsafe toxic conditions.
What are Toxic Torts?
A toxic tort is a personal injury caused by exposure to a toxic substance. Typically, the very existence of the toxic substance in the environment is the result of someone else’s negligence or reckless disregard for safety. In many cases, victims of toxic torts can sue to recover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future medical needs.
Although our trial attorneys have represented clients exposed to an innumerable amount of toxic substances, some of the more common cases involve:
- Asbestos is a fiber that was included in countless building and construction materials though the 1980s. Inhalation of asbestos is believed to cause dozens of serious (and sometimes fatal) illnesses
- Hazardous waste can make its way to unsuspecting victims through a variety of channels, including air pollution, ground water, soil, and even drinking water
- Toxic chemicals are found in nearly every segment of our society, from industrial solvents to backyard weed killers. They can be responsible for a whole host of serious illnesses, nerve-related conditions, and neurological symptoms
- Unfortunately, recent history has shown that contaminated water sometimes makes its way into the public reservoirs, creating grave medical dangers for those who ingest the water, swim in it, or use it for cooking and cleaning
