A toxic tort is a personal injury caused by exposure to a toxic material or substance, such as asbestos or lead. These substances are released into the air or water by nuclear factories or into the ground once dumped into carelessly lined or unlined landfills by corporations and government bodies who are more interested in making or saving money than in protecting individuals.
Victims can be exposed on the job, during leisure activities, and/or in their homes. Repeated exposure to these toxic substances has been frequently linked to lung cancer, leukemia, brain and other organ damage, and birth defects. Toxic tort litigation can be incredibly complicated. Many times injuries resulting from exposure to toxic substances do not show up until years, sometimes even decades, after exposure. So, proving them can be an up-hill battle.
The injured have to show that they were exposed to the substance and that this exposure caused the adverse effects and injuries they now experience. When faced with unethical corporations that destroy evidence, use their big money and status to hire medical experts who will claim that no correlation can be made between their exposure and injury, and defendants who will do and say anything to protect their business, it is not an easy fight.
