Toxic Exposure

One of the risks many Americans deal with on a constant basis is exposure to toxic material. These dangerous chemicals and metals can cause lifelong diseases that will result in substantial medical debt for you and your family. Although workers can claim workers’ compensation for a work-related illness, what can you do if you were exposed at home? Who can be held responsible for your disease?

For decades, the Pennsylvania toxic exposure lawyers at Fellerman & Ciarimboli have been helping clients throughout Pennsylvania with their toxic tort claims. We understand the complexities these types of lawsuits have and work together as a team to get you the best possible result for your claim. With our team of medical experts, we’ll make sure you get the compensation you deserve for your injury.

Examples of Common Toxins

Being exposed day in and day out to toxic materials and chemicals can cause serious, life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, mesothelioma, lung disease, and aplastic anemia. Although industrial workers are more likely to be exposed to dangerous chemicals, toxic exposure can happen to residents and consumers through the daily use of consumer products or living in hazardous conditions.

The most common examples of toxins include:

  • Asbestos – Found in older buildings and homes, the silica particles in asbestos can cause scar tissue to develop in your lungs, leading to either lung cancer or mesothelioma.
  • Water and Soil Contamination – Contamination can occur in several ways, like leaking septic systems, improper disposal of household chemicals, landfills, and agricultural runoff.
  • Pesticides – Although pesticides may be useful in killing pests, humans can experience serious side effects such as respiratory infections, skin irritations, and extreme weakness.
  • Metal Poisoning – Exposure to such metals as lead, mercury, and manganese can result in organ damage, heart problems, seizures, and internal bleeding.
  • Toxic Mold – Usually found in damp or water-damaged buildings, black mold can cause significant illnesses such as obstructive lung disease and acute idiopathic hemorrhage in infants.

Who Can Be Held Responsible in a Toxic Tort Claim?

In toxic exposure cases, multiple parties could be held responsible for your injuries, such as:

  • The product manufacturer. According to strict product liability law, you only need to prove the product manufactured was unreasonably dangerous. If the fumes of the product caused your injury, the product might be considered “defective,” and you could file a claim against the manufacturer as well as the supplier of the product.
  • The property owner. Premises liability states that the property owner must keep his/her property hazard-free, including free from toxins. By failing to do so, the owner may be held liable for your illness.
  • The employer. Employers have the responsibility of keeping their workers safe from harm. In the case of toxic exposure in the workplace, you will have the opportunity to file a workers' compensation claim; however, you may have the option to file a lawsuit against a third party for the injury.
  • The contractor. If a contractor negligently exposes you and your loved ones to toxins while performing work in your home, you do have the right to file a claim against that individual.

    “I highly recommend Attorney Molly & the firm to anyone seeking reliable & compassionate assistance during challenging times.”

    I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call.

Her comforting personality created a welcoming environment during our interactions, turning what could have been a somber experience into one filled with positivity.
