Toxic Exposure Lawsuit

Individuals can encounter toxic exposure through the water supply, consumer products, at the beach, or even at their workplace. Sadly, toxic exposure has devastated and injured countless people and communities. Water, soil, air, and consumer products can all carry hazardous toxic chemicals or agents. Thousands of people nationwide have developed severe health complications due to toxic exposure. Many have filed lawsuits against massive manufacturers, governments, and industries that have introduced or failed to safeguard the public from toxic chemicals. Did you or a loved one develop an injury due to toxic exposure? Reach out today to learn more about how a toxic exposure lawsuit can benefit you. 

Our law firm is currently handling lawsuits on behalf of individuals who suffered toxic exposure. Attorneys at The Lake Law Firm have extensive experience litigating for victims of toxic exposure and their loved ones. 

Who Is at Risk of Toxic Exposure?

Unfortunately, given the prevalence of toxic agents, nearly anyone is susceptible to toxic exposure. Children, adults, and the elderly are all capable of facing exposure to toxic chemicals. Additionally, toxic exposure can affect workers like those in manufacturing plants or firefighters, communities, service members, consumers, and even infants. The reckless actions of industries, corporations, and government officials know no bounds. Therefore, anyone can be at risk of toxic exposure. 

For example, tens of thousands of consumers have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson for their talc-based products. Plaintiffs allege that they developed cancer after using these talc-based products contaminated with asbestos, a known human carcinogen. Similar to consumers, workers have also developed mesothelioma after inhaling asbestos at their workplace. Furthermore, toxic exposure can jeopardize entire communities. Currently, residents of Jackson, Mississippi, continue to struggle with a water supply poisoned by lead. 

Types of Toxic Agents 

Some toxic chemicals are human-made, while others are naturally occurring. Regardless of their origins, various toxic agents can lead to adverse health effects. Lawsuits have named numerous toxic agents as having negative impacts on the health of victims, including: 

  • Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS)
  • Asbestos 
  • Lead
  • Volatile Organic Compounds 
  • Benzene 
  • Trichloroethylene (TCE) 
  • Arsenic 
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls
  • Mercury 
  • Cadmium

Injuries Related to Toxic Agents 

Although many of these toxic agents can cause immediate health effects, many toxins can build up over time. If someone suffers acute exposure to some of these toxic agents, they may experience a rapid onset of symptoms like watery eyes, burning sensations, dizziness, headaches, coughs, and more. Yet, prolonged exposure to the aforementioned toxic agents can cause: 

  • Cancers like mesothelioma, ovarian cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, thyroid cancer, brain cancer, and more.
  • Neurological disorders 
  • Birth-defects 
  • Infertility 
  • Parkinson’s Disease 
  • Multiple Sclerosis 
  • Cardiovascular disorders 
  • Autism 
  • ADHD
  • Renal impairment 

These injuries are only a mere fraction of what lawsuits allege individuals developed due to toxic exposure.
