Exposure to dangerous chemicals can cause serious injury or even death. Proving injury and causation (that the chemical caused injury), can be challenging and largely depends on the size of the dose and the duration of exposure. Toxic exposure cases require attorneys with expertise in toxicology, epidemiology, and other sciences. The chemical exposure lawyers on our Minneapolis team have the expertise necessary to handle your case.
Case Quick Facts
These are the top 10 toxic substances that are linked to significant injury:

The chemical exposure attorneys on our Minneapolis team have had 32 years of experience in proving these types of exposures and injuries. We have the knowledge and resources needed to take on large companies and prove your case.
