What is a “toxic tort”?

A Toxic Tort is a Law that was created to protect anyone that is harmed, injured, or killed from exposure to any toxic substance. Whether it be: industrial chemicals, lead-based paint, pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, or environmental toxins. These substances can be seriously damaging to your health and cause serious health concerns for you and your loved ones.

Examples of a Toxic Tort Claim

For example, you are given a prescription from a doctor that is intended to treat HIV. Instead, you got Cancer. Along with hundreds of thousands of others with HIV, just like you, also got Cancer. Each person’s story is a little different, but the one thing in common was the medication each person took. All of us here at The Mitchell Firm, have seen how this type of personal injury has affected millions of people, including you or a loved one. Now imagine every single one of those millions of people receiving justice. We can’t take back what happened, but we can prevent it from happening to others in the future.

That is just one example of a toxic pharmaceutical tort. There are FOUR other.

Generally, there are five different types of toxic tort exposure claims:

  1. In the Home: such as mold, mildew or fungus, and formaldehyde-treated wood and carpet
  2. In the workplace: where employees exposed to dangerous toxins in their workplace
  3. Environmental exposure: harmful toxins in drinking water or air that are consumed by people
  4. Pharmaceutical drugs, where the medication prescribed resulted in unintended side-effects which cause severe damage or suffering
  5. Consumer products, where consumers are injured or damaged with products that contain hazardous materials, such as breast implants, or tobacco.

To understand how these side effects are the cause of more significant medical issues, we first must speak with you and narrow down the path in which the side-effects came about. The Mitchell Firm wants you to know; we take our time to gather the evidence needed to bring justice to the responsible parties.
