Environmental Hazards Attorney


A toxic tort is a specific type of personal injury caused by exposure to an environmental hazard. The most common toxic tort case involves hazardous exposure as a result of a Plaintiff’s occupation or toxic pharmaceutical drugs.
Toxic tort cases differ from a number of personal injury claims in that the damage from hazardous exposure can be extremely severe, and often is life-threatening.


Asbestos Toxicity


Asbestos is a combination of 6 naturally occurring silicate minerals. It is used commercially because of its’ sound absorption properties, its’ high resilience to heat, and its’ affordability. However, these benefits do not come without risks. Asbestos litigation is perhaps one of the longest and most expensive mass tort battles in history. Hundred of thousands of victims have already stepped forward and fought back. Diseases caused by exposure to toxic materials, such as asbestos, can be life changing. If you have suffered due to exposure to any toxic material or chemical you may be entitled to compensation. Toledo Personal Injury Attorney Dennis E. Sawan can help you file a personal injury case against the party, or parties, responsible. You may be awarded damages covering your medical expenses, lost wages, future lost wages, and more losses you have suffered.


Toxic Pharmaceutical Drugs


Toxic tort cases are also often brought against pharmaceutical companies, drug manufacturers, or even prescribing doctors. These are cases in which the plaintiff alleges he was exposed to toxic pharmaceutical drugs and suffered an injury or death as a result. The claim that arises as a result is a products liability claim. The defective products involved in these cases are the drugs. Have you ever truly listened to the extensive list of side effects in a pharmaceutical commercial? Pharmaceutical drugs are often recalled after their negative side effects are discovered. However, these recalls, issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are often too late, and people have been injured as a result of defective pharmaceutical drugs.
Some common chemicals that have resulted in toxic tort cases include:


  • Beryllium
  • Benzene
  • Manganese
  • Silica
  • Pesticides
  • Asbestos
  • Lead


Diseases that have occurred as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals include:

  • Leukemia
  • Lung disease
  • Hodgkins disease
  • Aplastic anemia
