Products Liability & Toxic Tort
When exposure to a chemical causes injury or disease, a plaintiff’s claim against the responsible party is called a toxic tort lawsuit. Examples include exposure to toxic chemicals from consumer products, the environment, home or work, with exposure to pharmaceutical drugs and occupational exposures generally the most common.
Products liability, or defective products, sometimes falls within the category of toxic tort litigation but is also its own form of litigation, catching the occasional international headline for a dangerous toy or auto part recall.
If you or a loved one were seriously injured by a dangerous or defective product, Baker, Burton & Lundy’s personal injury litigation team can help.
Past cases have addressed illness or injury due to asbestos, breast implants and pharmaceuticals like L-Triptophan. We have also led a successful class action against a manufacturing plant whose uncovered disposal pit led to the dangerous inhalation of toxic chemicals by many members of a community.
Toxic Tort Expertise
BB&L, in Hermosa Beach, CA, has years of experience litigating many different kinds of toxic tort cases, in particular products liability. A product liability case can be expensive to develop and present because the attorney must demonstrate through research and expert opinions that an alternative to the defective design was both technologically and economically feasible. BB&L has the experience and resources to present such a case.
Proving causation in toxic tort is extremely complicated because it requires such extensive medical analysis. For example, cancer in a population with toxin exposure has to be connected to the particular toxin through scientific testing with a significant sample size. This requires the expense of testing a large number of people within the afflicted population and hiring an epidemiologist or infectious disease doctor to analyze the medical evidence. Albro Lundy has been through this process multiple times, and succeeded.
