Fighting for Environmental Justice
Consumers, workers, and community residents exposed to harmful chemicals or pharmaceutical products face a variety of injuries, sometimes deadly ones. For victims taking on large manufacturers and employers, the courts provide what is often their only hope for justice. Because a significant amount of time can lapse between exposure to a toxic substance and when the damage becomes manifest, toxic torts is one of the most complex areas of civil litigation, but also one of the most important.
