Toxic Tort

Toxic Tort litigation has changed dramatically in recent years. In the past, individual plaintiffs and their ill-financed attorneys faced large, well-financed corporations. Today, many of these same attorneys have leveled the toxic tort playing field by working with other lawyers around the country to finance their cases better and to share information. These and other developments have led many corporate defendants to settle with plaintiffs’ attorneys to avoid the costs of discovery and trial preparation.

The experienced toxic tort attorneys at Sheffer Law Firm help resolve toxic tort cases while minimizing the costs associated with such litigation. Proof of causation is often difficult in toxic tort cases and the challenging science supporting the cause of action can bring litigation to a screeching halt. The new federal class action legislation is an important development for toxic tort litigation, and will likely prevent many cases from being filed.
