Toxic Tort

The attorneys of Pietragallo’s Toxic Tort Group have over 70 years of collective experience. The firm’s breadth of experience covers not only asbestos exposures, but also exposures related to benzene, pesticides, hard metals, and fumes.

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.

Our attorneys have represented:

  • Fortune 500 companies manufacturing industrial equipment
  • Manufacturers of pesticides
  • Manufacturers and suppliers of hard metal products including tungsten carbide
  • Crane manufacturers
  • Designers and builders of steel-making facilities
  • Designers and builders of power generating facilities
  • Small manufacturers of pipe and heating systems
  • General construction contractors
