Identifying cause of toxic exposure central to recovering damages

Exposure to toxic substances in Kentucky workplaces or homes sometimes sickens victims and leaves them with serious medical problems like mesothelioma or other cancers. If you are coping with this type of problem, you could have the option of pursuing financial damages through a legal action called a toxic tort. Causation presents the primary challenge when building a case of this type because the opposing party might argue that something else caused the disease. A test that provides a definitive connection between exposure to dangerous substances and health problems does not necessarily exist.

Despite the challenges of proving liability, personal injury legal action could still empower victims to hold responsible parties accountable for sickness or injury caused by industrial solvents, asbestos, prescription medications or medical devices. Toxic exposures can result in costly and debilitating conditions, like brain damage, organ damage, nerve damage, lung disease or birth defects.

When you file a toxic tort against another party, you'll seek a settlement to cover compensatory damages. These encompass expenses directly resulting from your disease or injury, such as medical bills and pain and suffering. Some cases warrant requests for punitive damages that are meant to punish a company and convince it to cease negligent behavior.

Many regulations exist to protect workers from hazardous work environments or to prevent the use of toxic substances in building materials or consumer goods. Satterley & Kelley PLLC has the resources to investigate violations of these rules and organize medical information about a victim. These activities could identify evidence for a lawsuit against a large corporation. Our website describes the process of pursuing damages after exposure to asbestos on the job or other harmful materials.
