National Product Liability Attorneys
Dawn Smith and her experienced litigation team handle national toxic exposure claims involving various hazardous chemicals and other materials known to cause serious injury and death. Our clients have been injured at home and in the workplace from products that are advertised as safe. These cases are unique, and sometimes difficult to prove. Experience matters.
Toxic materials are substances that can cause serious harm through inhalation, ingestion or skin contact. Substances such as spray foam can bring long term effects to those that have been exposed. Once you are exposed to toxic chemicals the effects may be immediate or delayed for weeks, months or even years. Immediate effects include difficulty breathing, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, and allergic response, neurological symptoms, blurry vision, rashes, a loss of consciousness, and memory loss. This exposure can occur without an individual realizing that they are absorbing or inhaling these dangerous toxins. Long term injuries include cancer, reactive airway dysfunction syndrome (RADS), asthma, and many other life-altering medical conditions. The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act of the 21st Century provides the EPA with authority to require reporting, record-keeping and testing requirements and restrictions related to chemical substances. Contact an experienced lawyer to learn about your rights after you have been exposed to toxic chemicals as a result of someone’s negligence or complete disregard for the safety of consumers and workers.
