A toxic tort is a form of personal injury lawsuit in which the plaintiff claims that exposure to a chemical caused the plaintiff’s injury or disease. The exposure can be due to toxic mold, a pharmaceutical drug, or a chemical. There are several substances and products that if not used in a proper manner will lead to toxicity and can cause serious illnesses. There are chemicals that are safe when used properly; however, if proper safety precautions to contain that chemical were not implemented, that chemical can leak into the environment and lead to severe toxicity. A toxic tort lawsuit may be presented in a form of a class action if a large number of individuals were injured.
