Toxic and chemical exposure cases, also known as “toxic torts,” are claims of personal injury which result from exposure to chemicals, asbestos, silica and other irritants or toxins. In pursuing toxic tort claims in Massachusetts, great care must be given to liability assessment. Under Massachusetts and federal law, toxic and chemical exposure cases almost always require the retention of expert medical and toxicology witnesses. In addition, in handling toxic tort claims, our attorneys coordinate third party exposure claims with the injured person’s workers’ compensation benefits, when applicable. Our attorneys prepare these cases for settlement, mediation and, when required, for trial.
