A primary focus of our firm is helping clients that have been negatively affected by toxic chemicals or materials. Serious injury to individuals or property as a result of toxic exposure can be due to any dosage level, length of time or number of occurrences. Our attorneys have handled a number of cases involving widespread toxic exposure to life and property. These injuries may occur in the workplace, in the home, or as a result of environmental contamination to air, soil, or groundwater harming the public.
Injuries that can be caused by such exposure include asbestosis, mercury poisoning, heart disease, and other serious diseases. An individual suffering from a disease due to such exposure may be awarded damages, including but not limited to past and future medical expenses and lost wages.
As a firm, we have years of experience handling cases related to toxic chemical and material exposure. Most notably, we have reached Asbestos verdicts and settlements in excess of $500 million, reached the first jury verdict in the nation against an ephedra manufacturer in excess of $4 million, handled a mass chemical exposure case for residents of Lake Charles, LA as a result of exposure to sulfur dioxide, and handled a mass injury matter in Calcasieu Parish, LA as a result of e-coli contamination of drinking water.
If you feel that you have a claim as a result of toxic exposure or an environmental disaster, our attorneys would like to talk to you. Please feel free to contact us today for a free consultation.
