Were You Injured By Exposure To Dangerous Chemicals?

Exposure to dangerous chemicals or other toxins can cause lasting harm to your health, leading to illnesses such as cancer, damage to body organs or death. The victims of injuries caused by toxins or other dangerous products may have the right to seek compensation from the manufacturer. These lawsuits are often called “toxic torts.” Personal injury lawsuits involving dangerous chemicals are complex matters that often involve years of investigation, numerous witnesses and a review of many documents and events in attempting to determine whether an exposure caused the injuries suffered. Very few lawyers will ever be involved in toxic tort litigation, but our attorneys handled several cases involving injuries or death caused by chemical exposure or environmental contamination.

Proving The Link Between Illness And Chemical Exposure

Founding Attorney Marios Karayannis’s most significant case in this area of law involved a brain cancer cluster at a chemical company which resulted in over 30 plaintiffs filing suit. Mario represented 10 plaintiffs in the litigation and was appointed as the lead plaintiffs’ counsel by the court in the consolidated cases which had several other plaintiffs’ law firms also involved. After nearly 10 years of litigation, a very successful confidential settlement was achieved that was significantly due to Marios’s efforts in taking dozens of depositions and conducting settlement negotiations with the company’s counsel. The experience Marios gained in such complex litigation provided him with insight into toxic tort cases as well as preparing and prosecuting any complex personal injury matter. Through this and other toxic tort cases that Marios has handled, he has met and worked with many leading experts in the various fields that are relevant to chemical exposure litigation and is therefore in a good position to locate the necessary experts to evaluate any toxic tort case.
