Maine Toxic Tort Lawyer
Toxic torts result when an individual is injured due to their exposure to a chemical or other hazardous substance. Exposure may occur over a long period at low doses or serious injury may develop after a single exposure involving a high concentration of the toxic substance. Exposure often occurs in the workplace particularly in industrial settings.
Injuries due to exposure to a toxic substance can be very serious and even life-threatening and include such conditions as mesothelioma, lung cancer, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), acute myeloid leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and B-cell lymphoma.
When an individual is injured due to a toxic exposure, the manufacturer, distributors, and, at times, employers can and should be held responsible.
