Mass Toxic Torts
Defending a Broad Range Clients of Complex Liability Disputes
Between the severity of exposure, the number of people affected, and the removal of hazardous materials, mass toxic tort disputes are complex as it is. Do you have a trusted legal partner by your side when an insurance company gets involved?
In the midst of the decades-long litigation over asbestos, there is more at stake than personal injury. Today, numerous individuals, families, businesses, manufacturers, property owners, contractors, and equipment handlers find themselves in urgent, expensive conflict with their insurance providers over chemical exposure liability. In the event that a carrier drops or refuses to honor coverage, you need a legal team prepared and ready to defend your rights.
