Toxic Tort

Every manufacturing process has by-products and waste which must be disposed of properly. Waste products have varying degrees of toxicity– meaning how poisonous they are. The more dangerous the waste, the more expensive it is to dispose of. Sadly, some, companies, in pursuit of profit, dispose of hazardous wastes the cheapest way possible— burying them on the factory properly, carting them to a wilderness area or simply dumping them into a nearby stream. Improper methods of disposal virtually guarantee that people in the vicinity, or downstream, will be exposed to toxic wastes sooner or later. Depending on how poisonous the wastes, the degree and duration of exposure, and the sensitivity of those exposed, repercussions ranging from fleeting ailments to profound illness and/or death may occur. When victims and/or their families suffer and even die from toxic exposure, the real costs of haphazard toxic waste disposal come to light.

Damages from exposure to toxic wastes may take years to manifest– often as Cancer and Leukemia. When patients present with these illnesses, treating Physicians look for risk factors to explain why the condition arose. Exposure to certain toxins is strongly linked to development of specific Cancers and Leukemias.  When a number of individuals, or a “cluster” from a particular town, presents with these ailments, it behooves the doctor to inquire about toxic exposure and factories in the vicinity that are (or have been) releasing cancer-causing toxins into the environment.

If a victim can show, through medical and legal proof, that the best explanation for their illness was toxic exposure from a particular company’s unsafe disposal policies, that company should be held responsible. To do this generally requires filing a lawsuit– in effort to get deserved compensation to help the victim and/or their family with damages they have incurred. These damages may include medical bills, loss of work, pain and suffering, and even wrongful death. When brought by a victim and/or their family, this type of legal action is called a “Toxic Tort.” Industrial Toxins strongly linked to severe illnesses include:

  • Asbestos causing Mesothelioma Cancer in the Lungs or elsewhere;
  • Benzene causing Leukemias– including AML, ALL, CML, CLL, or HCL;
  • Aniline Dyes causing Bladder and Kidney Cancers;
  • Radiation Exposure causing Leukemias, Thyroid Cancer and/or Lung Cancer;
  • Toxic Gases, such as Chlorine, causing Lung Damage;
  • Lead exposure causing Brain Damage;
  • Pesticides causing Nervous System Ailments and/or Cancers; and
  • Nickel and Chromium exposure causing Head and Neck Cancers.
