The environment in which you live and work can cause significant harm to your health if you suffer exposure to a toxic substance such as chemical exposure and contamination. Often, these exposures are the result of another party’s disregard for health and safety regulations.

For more than 40 years, our firm has been helping people injured by negligence and recklessness. We work with clients across the U.S.
