Texas Toxic Torts Attorneys
Toxic tort refers to an area of law that encompasses personal injuries caused by exposure to dangerous substances including poisonous chemicals and/or hazardous forms of energy. Toxic tort litigation has increased immensely in the last few years because of heightened environmental awareness and a wider knowledge of health risks associated with certain hazardous substances. This area of law is important because it forces corporations to comply with safety regulations, thus reducing the risk of injury or death.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious harm resulting from exposure to a dangerous substance, you may be eligible to file a toxic tort to seek compensation for your losses. Recoverable damages may include past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, punitive damages, and more. An experienced toxic tort attorney at Williams & Brown LLP will discuss your legal rights and options with you and help you get the compensation you deserve.

- Lead-based paint
Toxic torts may also involve pharmaceutical products, fertilizers, or other products that contain or spread dangerous substances.
