Environmental & Toxic Torts

Alleged exposure to contaminated groundwater, soil, asbestos, chemical exposure, mold, landfill contamination, defective pharmaceutical drugs, or defective construction products can be devastating to any organization. Sutter O’Connell’s environmental and toxic tort attorneys work to stem the flow of bad information by providing a thorough defense representation of environmental and toxic tort injury cases.

The environmental and toxic tort team at Sutter O’Connell has the legal and scientific access to defend a company against construction-site work issues, environmental exposure, or an adverse reaction to a prescription drug. In fact, claims may be the result of factors entirely unrelated to any toxic exposure, or may be the responsibility of a third party.

We use our knowledge to manage these types of claims. During our process we employ extensive research, consulting experts, and methodical preparation to expose causal weaknesses in a plaintiff’s claim. Drawing on our experience in handling toxic torts, products liability, and other personal injury matters, our attorneys perform a wide ranging investigation to determine causation and liability, providing our clients with an optimal opportunity to defend the claim against them, whether during a settlement or trial.
