Types of Toxic Tort Claims

Plaintiffs in toxic tort claims allege that exposure to a dangerous substance caused their injury or illness. These claims may be brought in class action lawsuits. Toxic tort claims usually involve:

  • Consumer products: Examples include pesticides that cause unintended illness when used by consumers.
  • Occupational exposure: This may involve industrial workers exposed to toxins on the job, either at high levels for short periods of time or at low levels for extended periods of time (Examples include: asbestos and benzene litigation).
  • Exposure in the home: Toxic tort claims are brought by plaintiffs for dangerous substances in the home, such as toxic mold.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs: This type of claim arises when pharmaceutical drugs cause unintended side effects in consumers. (Example of pharmaceutical toxic tort litigation include: the antidepressant drugs Prozac and Zoloft.)
