Environmental Exposure and Toxic Torts

Environmental contamination may be the result of a single incident, such as an oil spill, or years of progressive pollution, as when toxic agents seep into groundwater.

Although life-altering medical problems are a sadly frequent byproduct of environmental contamination, toxins can also pose a long-term threat to physical property, including homes, businesses, schools and farmland.

Environmental Exposure and Health Problems

Environmental exposure to contaminants often contributes to long-term and sometimes deadly medical conditions including:

  • Birth defects
  • Cancer
  • Neurological disorders
  • Organ damage
  • Respiratory ailments

In many cases, the effects of environmental contamination take years to become evident. In cases in which the source of exposure to potential toxins is apparent, medical monitoring may be necessitated to observe those exposed and provide treatment as quickly as possible.

Compensation in Toxic Tort Cases

Victims of environmental exposure to toxins often face substantial medical bills and may require at-home care or lengthy rehabilitation that forces them out of their jobs. Damages in toxic tort cases can include money for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Toxic torts may also involve punitive damages, which is money awarded beyond actual damages and is meant to punish defendants for intentional or grossly negligent behavior.
