Toxic Tort

The attorneys of the Toxic Tort Group of Pietragallo have over 100 years of collective experience. The firm’s breadth of experience covers not only chemical exposures such as benzene and pesticides, but also covers industrial exposures to materials such as asbestos and hard metals. Asbestos litigation in particular has evolved since its inception from traditional miners of asbestos and manufacturers of asbestos products to employers and premises owners. Much of the litigation has moved away from traditional workplace industrial sites such as steel mills and power stations, to commercial facilities such as laboratories or skyscrapers and educational facilities such as schools. Our attorneys keep up with the latest trends in toxic tort litigation and are well-versed in handling expert challenges to causation.
