Toxic Torts

The different types of lawsuits carried under the umbrella of personal injury lawsuits are many. So many, that defining them can seem daunting. Because of this, there are certain types of personal injury lawsuits that have a name for a fairly specific topic. One of these topics is injury from a toxic chemical or product. These personal injury cases are referred to as toxic torts.

Toxic torts vary in a number of ways including the severity of the injury and the route of exposure.

Different Types of Toxic Torts

Although toxic tort lawsuits can involve exposure through a wide variety of means, they typically occur in one of the following ways:

  • Pharmaceuticals: Even drugs that have been approved by the FDA and tested can still be toxic in certain situations.
  • Consumer products: These products include ingestible products as well as products in which toxins may seep out of the product and into the skin.
  • Workplace exposure: Many toxic tort cases happen to individuals exposed to chemicals at work. Negligent companies can also expose entire communities to dangerous chemicals if they fail to dispose of them properly.

Toxic tort lawsuits can help to work towards a safer product market for consumers.
