Toxic Torts



A toxic tort is a personal injury caused by contact with a toxic substance, such as toxic mold, lead paint, a faulty medical device, or a dangerous medication. Several federal laws are designed to protect you and the environment from toxic substances and dangerous products. You're protected from accidents around your workplace by the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA). When large numbers of individuals are injured by the same defective product, they may join together in a class action lawsuit to hold manufacturers and sellers liable for the injuries caused by their defective products.
