Toxic Tort

Claims for bodily injury, mental/emotional injury, and medical monitoring arising out of alleged exposure to asbestos and other toxins continue to be filed in unprecedented numbers. Our firm has played a leading role in the development of defenses to latent disease-injury claims, such as those caused by silica or asbestos. Both “mature” (e.g., asbestos) and “emerging” (e.g., talc) toxic torts fall within the vast experience of our Toxic Tort Group. We strategically address legal and factual issues, as well as medical causation. Our comprehensive repository of medical, scientific, and technical information, as well as working alongside highly respected consultants and experts, enables us to successfully defend claims not only brought by individuals but claims involving by multi-party, mass litigation.
