Toxic Tort & Lead Poisoning Lawyers in NJ

A toxic tort is a type of personal injury lawsuit in which the victim alleges that their injury was the result of exposure to a toxic material or chemical. 

In some instances, a toxic tort claim is filed on an individual basis. This means that the lawsuit is filed by a single injured victim against one or several companies allegedly responsible for the injury. Other times, claims are filed by a group of similarly injured victims against one or several companies allegedly responsible for the injuries. These type of claims are commonly referred to as mass tort or class action lawsuits.

These types of personal injury claims typically arise in the following contexts:

In order to show liability, the plaintiff must demonstrate that the substance was dangerous, that he/she was exposed to the substance, and that the he/she sustained injury because of it.
