We help clients sort through the legal and scientific merits of claims for injury from contamination. Because even the perception of a threat of human injury from exposure to contaminants can have devastating implications, we advise clients on ways to limit their exposure to even specious or unsubstantiated claims. We have handled cases involving individual claims or as class actions seeking damages for personal injury, property damage, and the costs of medical monitoring.

We have represented clients in:

  • Numerous cases involving exposure to gasoline constituents through drinking water or soil vapor intrusion
  • Several lawsuits arising from alleged exposure to the Wade Superfund site in Delaware County, Pennsylvania
  • Multiple claims arising out of an explosives site causing groundwater contamination
  • Several lawsuits involving hundreds of plaintiffs residing in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, New Jersey, who claimed injuries resulting from exposure to dust and noise from an aggregate grinding operation using large numbers of trucks
  • Challenge or challenges to siting development projects based on environmental exposure, nuisance, or property damage claims

When the need arises, our toxic tort litigators can draw upon additional resources from the firm's Product Liability and Mass Tort Group.
