What Is a Toxic Tort?

At GoldenbergLaw, we believe that Minneapolis-area residents exposed without their knowledge to dangerous chemicals should be compensated for the resulting illnesses. That’s the underlying philosophy of our toxic torts practice.

“Toxic tort” refers to a group of cases resulting from exposure to dangerous heavy chemicals. GoldenbergLaw has pursued compensation for illnesses resulting from exposure to:

  • Arsenic
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Benzene
  • Asbestos
  • Toxic fumes
  • Pesticides

Even short-term exposure to these chemicals can have long-term health consequences. Such exposure can happen at work or through close proximity to these chemicals at your residence. Companies are not always ethical and rigorous about disposing of these chemicals, putting innocent Minnesotans in danger.

Toxic tort cases raise difficult legal and scientific questions. These cases are among our specialties. GoldenbergLaw’s toxic tort lawyers have been handling these issues for decades, meaning we have the specialized experience required to understand your case.

If you live in Minneapolis or any other Minnesota community and you’re suffering an illness as a result of chemical exposure, our toxic tort lawyers can help. Please contact GoldenbergLaw for a free consultation.
