Toxic Torts

Toxic Torts

Peter has successfully handled and defended an array of toxic tort claims involving lead-based paint, CO poisoning, mold, toxic spills and leakages, and industrial chemicals and solvents, including benzene. He has represented clients facing the following types of claims: personal injuries, including cancers and “chemical sensitivities;” property damage claims relating to cost of remediation and repair; alleged design and construction errors resulting in claimed contamination; and alleged failure to properly identify and/or remediate claimed hazards.

Successful defense of toxic tort claims requires both legal knowledge (particularly with respect to how courts handle scientific matters) and technical knowledge with respect to the “toxic” substance at issue in a given case. In addition, because the science and the law in this area can be quite complex, it is important to have an attorney that can engage the plaintiff’s expert on scientific matters, and also explain difficult concepts to a jury.
