When your injury or illness is caused by the presence of a harmful substance in your home, workplace, or elsewhere, you could have a valid “toxic tort” claim. An asbestos-mesothelioma lawsuit is probably the best-known example of this kind of case, but the presence of other harmful materials -- including chemicals and other dangerous substances -- can give rise to a toxic tort claim. You’ll find in-depth information (and expert help) in this section.
