We are exposed to all types of toxins every single day, ranging from various types of carcinogens in the food we eat, to the threat of lead in drinking water. Research conducted on food and toxins have revealed that there are toxins in everything consumable around us, but not everyone reacts in the same manner to these toxins.
However, if you do get injured from exposure to toxins, you should know that you can pursue legal recourse, in the form of toxic tort claims with the help of an injury attorney.
What are toxic tort claims? In general, they are claims made from allegations that exposure to toxins and chemicals have caused an injury to a person. However, you should know that it is very difficult to prove that you have been injured from a specific toxin or chemical and not from something else, which makes it difficult to win a toxic tort claim.
There have been many toxic tort claims made over the years, which involve asbestos litigation, and extensive exposure to asbestos in working conditions led to mesothelioma in workers in the 1970s and 1980s, but it has only been discovered recently what those people were going through.
When it comes to most injuries, it can be easier to identify the source and cause of the harm done to you. For instance, you can easily tell the cause of the injury when a person suffers a head injury or a broken foot. The isn’t the case when it comes to toxic tort cases, because it involves individuals who may have suffered exposure for weeks, months, years, or maybe decades to the toxin. In such cases, patients find out too late about their illness, and it becomes difficult to file proper toxic tort claims.
An experienced personal injury attorney can help guide you through your case from the beginning to the end, even if you think that you have no chance of winning the case. They will walk you through the entire process and will determine the real cause of the toxin exposure.
If toxin exposure has resulted in death, the family of the victim can file a wrongful death action suit. This will enable them to win compensation due to negligence of the entity, person, or company that was responsible for the toxin exposure. It doesn’t matter whether you have been exposed to dangerous chemicals for a short time or a long period, if you have fallen ill after being exposed to them, then you can get a lawyer to help you file a claim against the company.
