What is an Environmental Toxic Tort?

Corporations release chemical toxins into our environment every day, often illegally. Sometimes, these toxins infiltrate or spill into residential areas, polluting the communities and posing dangerous threats to the residents. When the health of the residents is affected, the offending corporation can be held liable for the environmental toxic tort.

What are some toxic tort examples? Two of the most common environmental threats include contamination of groundwater and contamination of air, and these can cause birth defects in new children or serious illnesses. If you believe your family may have been exposed to a toxic substance and has since suffered serious injury or illness, you can work with a Florida environmental toxic torts attorney to receive compensation for your family’s suffering.

Should I Claim Environmental Toxic Tort?


Toxins are highly dangerous, but they can often take years to start affecting the population, making it notoriously difficult to track down the substance responsible for the suffering of the residents. Our attorneys are experienced in handling toxic tort cases in Florida; we know exactly what to look for to make your claim as effective as possible.

How are toxic torts discovered? The most common warning signs include a noticeable rise in the occurrences of cancer and birth defects when compared to the national average. Although these two symptoms might not be noticeable for decades after the chemical spill, they are still a red flag that something is not right in the area. If you believe your neighborhood is displaying these signs, please call a West Palm Beach environmental toxic tort lawyer.
