Toxic Environmental Injury Lawsuits

An environmental disease lawsuit is a particular type of personal injury lawsuit in which the injured victim claims that exposure to toxic chemicals caused their injury or disease.

People are exposed to toxic chemicals from the environment, manufacturing plants, refineries, landfills, dumps, pharmaceuticals, and from consumer products in the home, and at work.

Occupational environmental toxic tort cases occur more often than any other because industrial workers are more likely to suffer from long-term exposure to toxic chemicals than consumers or residents.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration estimates that


Over the past 50 years more than 75,000 toxic chemicals have been released into the environment.


Environmental Mass tort cases happen when environmental contamination causes harm to an individual or a community.

Many environmental illnesses that result from exposure can create life changing circumstances for injury victims and their families. In some instances, it can take many years for the effects of toxic environmental exposure to hazardous substances to arise. Cases like mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer have been known to take 10-50 years before their symptoms become known to the victim.

Environmental law governs any environmental issues regarding pollution of the ground, water and air by chemical exposure, hazardous wastes and other dangerous and toxic pollutants.

Environment law includes regulations and cleanup regarding hazardous or chemical materials and the consequences of individuals who violate environment statutes. Environmental law provides protection for prospective purchasers of environmentally impacted property; and environmental law prohibits the dumping of toxic waste or other hazardous materials in our lakes, rivers, streams, and public land.

If you have been diagnosed with an environmental disease from exposure to a toxic substance, knowing your legal rights can provide both financial relief and peace of mind. Victims of Environmental Diseases, negligence, and personal injury have the right to seek compensation for their injuries, damages, loss of wages, and medical expenses.
