Environmental Claims/Toxic Torts

"Toxic torts" refers to an area of the law dealing with injuries to a person or property resulting from exposure to dangerous or toxic substances or products. At Stanton Serbousek Law Firm, our attorneys represent insurers and businesses in Dallas-Fort Worth and throughout Texas who are being sued by those alleging a toxic tort.

We Have Ample Experience Handling Toxic Tort Claims

There are many types of substances and products that have been the basis for toxic tort litigation, the most well-known of which is asbestos. Our toxic tort lawyers handle asbestos defense litigation for the manufacturers and distributors of asbestos products such as floor and ceiling tiles, gaskets, and brake linings.

Other types of toxic torts include chemical exposure cases, where an individual is allegedly injured through exposure to hazardous substances such as benzene, or suffer from silicosis (a lung disease resulting from exposure to small sand granules during sandblasting).

Recently, there have been product exposure cases for:

  • Underground storage tank leaks
  • Toxic spills
  • Cellular phones — consumers alleged that they were developing brain tumors as a result of their phones
  • Breast implants that leak and cause injury

Similarly, increased concerns about the environmental impact of "fracking" have led to numerous land and water contamination claims against extraction companies.
