Chemical Exposure & Toxic Torts

Lake Charles Toxic Tort Lawyers

Some of the most serious injuries are not apparent at first, because they build up in our systems day by day in the air we breathe and the environment we live and work in. At Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C., we file toxic torts for injuries caused by environmental exposures to noxious chemicals and other substances, including pesticides, drugs, solvents, metals, mold, and unsafe food.

Toxic Tort: A Weapon Against Hazardous Chemical Exposure

Examples of toxic tort cases include:

  • Asbestos-caused mesothelioma
  • Lawsuits against companies that sell hamburger with E. coli
  • Underground storage tanks leak and soil must be remediated
  • Formaldehyde embedded in a home’s walls and furnishings
  • Unsafe medicine (essentially a product liability case, with the defective product being the drug)

A toxic tort can take the form of a class action suit, in which one plaintiff stands in for a group of similarly injured parties, or it can be a mass tort, where multiple parties sue simultaneously for damages.

Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C., of Lake Charles, Louisiana, is a leader in both these approaches to compensating groups of people, and invites your inquiries.
