Toxic torts law holds manufacturers, distributors, retailers, employers and landowners responsible as a result of unreasonable exposure to chemicals, carcinogens and other agents that cause serious illness. Examples include asbestos, mold, lead paint, dry cleaning agents and solvents. Also included in this category are dangerous pharmaceutical drugs such as Vioxx, DES, Rezulin, Propulsid and Phen-Fen.
Individuals with serious conditions that were medically caused by their exposure to or ingestion of a harmful agent can recover compensatory damages.
