ENVIRONMENTAL LAW

WHAT IS A TOXIC TORT?


A toxic tort is a personal injury caused by exposure to toxic substance. Hazardous waste, lead based paint, pesticides, asbestos, electro-magnetic fields, toxic landfill waste, heavy metals, mercury and arsenic are all examples of toxic substances that can be harmful. The government has passed environmental laws to regulate the hazardous impact that industries create through use of and disposal of toxic substances. However, corporate greed, and an unwillingness to invest in systems that will reduce damage continue to create dire consequences to our environment.


Through successful prosecution, Prince Glover & Hayes has gained a national reputation for prevailing in toxic tort and environmental litigation cases. We understand the immense challenge of protecting families and land from environmental abuse and we take that challenge seriously. Toxic tort and environmental litigation is an extremely complex area of law, often requiring scientific experts, such as toxicologists and certified industrial hygienists to provide analysis and evaluation. Our years of experience in this law area have assisted us in establishing teams of qualified experts, fundamental not only in proving environmental negligence and abuse, but also in serving our commitment to justice. By securing significant verdicts and settlements against large corporations involved in toxic abuse, we create a safer world.

Prince Glover & Hayes Law does not offer any guarantee of case results. The cases mentioned in this site are illustrative of the array of matters handled by the firm involving various areas of personal injury law. In many of the verdicts listed, plaintiffs either settled or obtained a modified award. These illustrations, though based upon cases handled by this office, are representative only and should not be viewed as an assurance of a particular result. Each case must stand on its own facts and circumstances. These recoveries are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law.

The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
