New York Toxic Tort Attorneys – What is a Toxic Tort?

Experienced Toxic Tort Attorneys for Injured Toxic Tort Victims

Toxic Tort Attorneys New York | Toxic Tort attorneyA 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.



How Toxic Exposure Occurs

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.

Client Testimonials

From beginning to end we were comfortable with the team at GLK. Thank you Mr. Gersowitz (Ed) for obtaining a settlement out of court.
Donna L. S.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
