In many toxic tort cases, there can be scientific proof that the toxic exposure caused the illness or disease that is now destroying the person’s health and ultimately their lives, even though the exposure may have happened years in advance of the illness occurring.
Toxic exposure has been proven by scientific studies to trigger illnesses such as leukemia, lung disease, lung cancer, or lymphoma (non-Hodgkin’s) years after the original exposure occurred, albeit in many cases, the exposure may have been on-going while the person worked in a specific environment with toxic substances surrounding them on a daily basis.
Important Experience for a Toxic Tort Attorney
In proving causation in a toxic tort case, attorneys must be knowledgeable regarding the science surrounding various chemicals and compounds. Many toxic tort attorneys use scientists who have done in-depth research and studies involving toxic chemicals and the disease-causing effects to those who have been briefly exposed, or exposed over a time-frame of many years, as expert witnesses during jury trials. Using this type of expertise often provides a jury with the compelling evidence they need in order to rule in the plaintiff’s favor.
Even brief exposure to certain toxic chemicals can cause devastating, long-term, and even life-threatening injuries to those exposed. Having a toxic torts lawyer on your side who understands the value of the science supporting toxic torts, will definitely work in your best interest to ensure that a judge and jury can have a thorough understanding of the injuries you have suffered as a result of your exposure to hazardous chemicals, and award you fair and just compensation for those injuries.
