What is A Chemical and Environmental Toxic Tort Lawyer?

Have you or a loved one been injured, or suspect you have, because of exposure to toxic materials, chemicals or prescription drugs? If so, you may be legally entitled to financial compensation for the damage or illnesses it has caused you or your loved ones.

Today, according to the American Chemical Society, 20 million chemicals exist, many of which are being used in places of employment and within our communities. Some chemicals benefit society, but some are toxic and lead to injuries and death.

In some cases, corporations and companies that know certain toxins are harmful to human beings, conceal and ignore the dangers. The most common injuries from toxic poisoning occur on the job, especially in industrial occupations, but toxins are also released into the environment. In some cases, irresponsible companies dump toxic waste into waterways and landfills. Toxins can also be found in hazardous cleaning products, paints and primers, and pesticides.

Legal over-the-counter prescription drugs can also injure or kill. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported that in 2017, 46 new drugs were released into the medical marketplace.

What is a Toxic Tort?

If you or a loved one have been damaged by toxic materials, chemicals or drugs, in legal terms it is called a “toxic tort.” A toxic tort is an injury caused because of exposure to dangerous materials or chemicals. In a case where you or a loved one have been exposed to damaging toxins, you may be legally entitled to monetary compensation from the manufacturers, employers and distributors of products that have created or exposed you to such injury.

As a Zanes Law client, we will initiate a personal injury case on your behalf against those responsible for the damage caused by toxic materials, drugs or chemicals and see it through until you receive a fair settlement to cover your lost wages, any future lost wages, medical expenses, necessary continuing medical and home care, and other unforeseen expenses.

Types of Material and Chemical Injuries

Zanes Law represents the injured in toxic tort cases, including harm, injuries, or death caused by the following toxins:

Asbestos
Beryllium
Manganese
Pesticides
Benzene
Lead
Mold
Silica
Talc powder
Ammonia
Hydrochloric or sulfuric acid
Ammonia
Chlorine
Breast implants
Carbon monoxide

Diseases caused by exposure to these toxins include asbestosis, mesothelioma, leukemia, lung cancer and lung disease, Hodgkin’s disease, aplastic anemia, liver failure among other damaging and life-threatening substances and materials.

Zanes Law Firm also represents those injured by pharmaceutical companies, drug manufacturers and prescribing doctors (the latter different from malpractice) when a plaintiff was exposed to toxic medications resulting in injury or death. Recent examples of damages caused by drugs have included but are not limited to:

Epi-Pens
Ephedra
Abilify
Accutane
Actos
Ambien
Aredia
Avandia
Celebrex
Crestor
Depakote

Because every year, thousands of chemicals are both intentionally and unintentionally released into the environment and workplace, this puts workers and the community in harm’s way. Also, new drugs are distributed into the medical marketplace, which in some cases have been improperly tested and, therefore, irresponsibly marketed for use.

While millions of dollars are spent developing and producing chemicals, too little is done to protect public health, improve industry safety and reduce the impact on the environment.

That’s where Zanes Law attorneys can help. Through what can be a long and arduous litigious process, we will handle all the administrative, research, witness interviews, court motions and filings, negotiations and trial work.
