Effective Attorneys Seek Relief for Toxic Exposure Victims

Skillful firm represents plaintiffs in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia & Florida

Without warning, exposure to a toxic substance can alter your life forever. Even in the worst cases, however, it can be difficult to pin fault on the liable party, especially if the defendant is a powerful business. The attorneys of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban have more than 200 years of combined experience winning substantial verdicts and settlements for clients in five states. Whether your claim relates to asbestos, water contamination, workplace chemicals, toxic waste or some other harmful substance, our firm can press for a fair result that addresses the medical expenses, lost wages, permanent damage and related costs associated with a toxic tort. In Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida, we provide strong legal support.

Demonstrating liability in a toxic tort case

To receive compensation in a toxic tort verdict, a plaintiff must demonstrate that the following four factors exist:

  • Defendant’s legal duty — In most cases, if you have been affected by exposure to an unsafe substance, that means that the defendant had a duty to keep you safe from danger. Occasionally, companies try to allege that a victim was not supposed to be in the location where the contamination occurred.
  • Breach of the duty — Businesses and individuals who have control over dangerous materials must take reasonable care to see that innocent people are not threatened by the release of a toxic substance.
  • Proximate cause — To win an award in court, a plaintiff must show that the injury or illness directly resulted from the defendant’s negligence.
  • Damages — When someone has been harmed by toxic exposure, we have the legal and practical knowledge to assess the claim accurately and press for a result that delivers full, fair compensation.

In a free initial consultation, our accomplished attorneys will evaluate the circumstances in your case to see if the requisite elements exist for legal relief.

Firm litigates mesothelioma cases arising from asbestos exposure

Many people are familiar with the numerous mesothelioma cases that resulted from the use of asbestos over several decades. Companies that used the substance in products ranging from automobile brakes to floor tiles knew the chemical was extremely toxic, but covered up evidence of the harm. Many liable companies went out of business because of the crushing liability, but courts have established trust funds for new victims of mesothelioma who continue to be diagnosed with this incurable form of cancer. Mesothelioma takes decades to develop, so even though the industry has adopted better safety standards for dealing with asbestos, victims continue to come forward.

Our firm is actively engaged in mesothelioma mass tort litigation. These cases differ from many other types of claims, because the harmful product was produced by numerous defendants. To prevail in your claim, you must identify the specific source of your asbestos exposure. We can help you locate the proper defendant and hold that company accountable for your harm.

    This law firm helped me get the VA to classify my husband as 100% disabled from an injury he suffered while in the Navy which later gave rise to Parkinson's. They're very good.
