Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Because toxic tort cases often involve manufacturers, distributors, employers, and any number of other entities that may have extensive resources for defending themselves, toxic exposure cases are often handled as mass torts or class actions. At Lyons & Lyons, we provide the strong advocacy your case needs to hold negligent parties accountable.

Intricacies and Impacts of Toxic Exposure

One of the challenges of a case involving toxic exposure is the fact that there may be long latency periods between the moment of exposure and the onset of an illness or its symptoms. Someone may think the danger has passed, or they may not even realize they were exposed to a dangerous substance. The appearance of symptoms after a length of time has passed can make it difficult to trace those symptoms back to an instance of exposure to a toxic chemical. While some chemicals may instantly cause damage upon contact, others may cause what seems like cold or flu symptoms hours, days, months, or years later. Examples of the common health impacts of exposure to toxic substances include acute symptoms as well as chronic conditions such as:

  • Rashes
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Coughing
  • Blurred Vision
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Birth Defects
  • Cancer
  • And many others

We are Well-Versed in Handling all Aspects of a Toxic Tort

Some particular challenges our attorneys are prepared to address in toxic tort cases include:

Proving Causation:

A clear link between the injury, illness or other harmful condition experienced by the plaintiff and a specific toxic exposure must be proven. Our lawyers effectively demonstrate this through extensive investigation and documentation of evidence along with the testimony of trusted experts.

Scientific Evidence:

Because chemical substances are involved in a toxic tort, definitive scientific data must be presented that shows that the chemical involved is indeed toxic. Our seasoned and proven scientific experts clearly provide evidence and testimony explaining the toxic effects of the chemical our client was exposed to.
