Toxic Chemical Exposure Lawyers | Romanucci & Blandin
There are a variety of ways people and property can be exposed to toxic substances. One common way is through pollution of real estate or land. The way companies or other organizations deal with waste management can impact people far beyond their own staff. The unsuspecting public may be at risk. Brownfields that may be contaminated often remain vacant in communities and can be a source of environmental pollution. The improper remediation of hazardous waste can also allow toxic substances to seep into the soil, leaving people at risk for injury, illness or wrongful death from the exposure.
Toxic Chemical Exposure Litigation
Many chemicals are incredibly toxic to our health and are far too common in our communities. Numerous chemicals have caused illness or death, including:
- Asbestos – Asbestos is used in fire-resistant and insulating materials such as brake linings and hair dryers. Exposure to asbestos can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma and other illnesses.
- Lead paint – Lead paint was commonly used in homes, industrial facilities and apartment buildings that are older. There are numerous medical problems that result from lead poisoning, including kidney damage and brain injuries, especially in children.
- Pesticides- Pesticides are used to prevent, destroy, repel or mitigate any pest. Pesticides have been linked to numerous human health problems, including nervous system or endocrine system damage or cancer.
In some cases, a group of people, such as employees, are exposed to a toxic substance together, can result in a class action lawsuit. We have experienced toxic tort attorneys who have handled a variety of toxic tort cases, including class action lawsuits for their clients.
An example of one of the cases where we are lead counsel, is a hazardous chemical spill in the far north suburbs of Chicago that caused injury for many people who required hospitalization and medical treatment. This accident changed the lives of many residents and visitors in a single day, and we are committed to justice for their injuries.
