We represent manufacturers, premise owners and engineering companies including chemical, energy and plastics companies, in mass and single action claims of exposure to alleged carcinogens and toxic substances. We also handle claims involving chemical plant explosions.

Our practice experience encompasses a wide range of chemicals and substances. Included are asbestos, diethylstilbestrol (DES), acrylonitril-butadiene-styrene (ABS), vinyl chloride and aromatic hydrocarbons, including benzene, toluene, and xylene.

In one Louisiana mass torts action involving claims of toxic chemicals and thousands of plaintiffs, we were able to dramatically reduce the legal and financial exposure of our client, an engineering company.

Exposure to carcinogens is the basis of many of these claims. To mount a persuasive defense and counter plaintiffs’ experts, we rely on a highly regarded network of epidemiologists, nurses, medical technicians, scientists and health experts.
