American Tort Law is based on the principle that damages occurring from another’s negligence or wrongful act and caused to a person’s body, property, reputation or commercial interests (not involving breach of contract) provide grounds for a civil suit. The injured party is entitled to receive economic, medical or other compensation with the purpose of being returned to the condition that existed prior to the tort.
Toxic torts are torts resulting from exposure to toxic substances. Examples of toxic substances include asbestos, lead-based paint, dry cleaning solvents, pesticides, electromagnetic fields, radiation, and various other heavy metals and chemicals.
Proving injury based on toxic torts requires extensive research capability and the involvement of specialists such as toxicologists and certified industrial hygienists, not to mention medical doctors experienced in diagnosing symptoms of diseases and conditions resulting from toxic exposure. Our injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Creedon & Feliciani, P.C. have effectively represented clients in cases where asbestos exposure resulted in mesothelioma as well as numerous other cases involving disease and injury caused by toxic substances.
