Defective and Dangerous Product Attorneys
Thousands of deaths and millions of injuries occur each year due to faulty or defective products. While public product recalls attempt to get products off the market and out of homes before injury occurs, many product defects such as a child car seat malfunctions and child cribs are not identified until a severe injury or death occurs.
Companies that utilize dangerous substances such as lead paint, pesticides, toxic waste, asbestos, chemical solvents, and other materials have a duty to handle and dispose of them in a responsible manner. When workers fail to prevent harmful situations involving these substances, families can suffer devastating injuries. Toxic tort law is a special area of law that involves environmental toxicity as a result of exposure to harmful chemicals. Toxic tort clients suffered injury as a result of exposure to harmful substances through no fault of their own. Companies have been held accountable and ordered to pay millions to families who have suffered severe and irreversible damage after toxic environmental exposure. Authorities who executed or spearheaded illegal dumping or other harmful activities that led to environmental contamination can be held accountable for putting communities at risk.
