Toxic Torts

Michigan Toxic Torts Defense Lawyers: Personal Injury & Property Damage - Hazardous or Toxic Materials or Substances

Toxic tort lawsuits are unique personal injury and property damage claims which involve manufacturers and suppliers of potentially hazardous or toxic materials or substances, as well as property owners and management companies who sell or lease property contaminated by these materials. Toxic tort claims may involve claims alleging physical injury, psychological and neuropsychological injury, pain and suffering, real and personal property damage and diminution of real property due to emission of chemical vapors and contaminants.

The successful defense of toxic tort lawsuits requires expertise concerning the manner in which state and federal courts handle scientific issues, the technical aspects of the substances involved in the litigation, and often expertise concerning general and specific causation.
