Exposure to toxic substances
Toxic tort cases are a consequence of when people are unknowingly exposed to unsafe chemicals or materials that cause injury, illness or death. These poisons can come from a number of sources. They can exist in consumer products, pharmaceuticals, can be part of a contaminated environment, at the work place, and may even be present in the home. For instance, during the building of a house, construction materials such as wood or carpeting may be treated with chemicals such as formaldehyde and pesticides. These harmful substances linger after families move into the completed house. Toxins can also be present in drinking water, air, or soil. A defective drug can be detrimental to thousands of patients, and litigation can be held against the drug manufacturers and the physicians who prescribed them.
An individual may be exposed to a health hazard for a very long period of time without being aware of the cause of their ongoing injury. The injury, illness, or death may occur long after their exposure, and it may not always be known until long afterward that a toxic chemical was the cause. However, in most toxic tort cases, there are several others who have had the same symptoms or injury. So the problem of exposure to a toxic substance is easier to recognize.
