Members of Womble Carlyle's Environmental, Energy & Toxic Tort Litigation Practice Group engage in a variety of toxic tort and environmental litigation, ranging from acting as local counsel in specific cases to coordinating litigation nationwide. In addition, lawyers in the Group provide regulatory representation for a diverse range of industrial clients on current or potential enforcement and compliance issues.
We have defended numerous toxic tort cases concerning exposure to chemicals and environmental agents that lead to claims of personal injury (including death), medical monitoring, fear of future illness and damages to real property. These cases arise from exposure to chemicals from such diverse sources as workplaces, products, air emissions, hazardous material releases, explosions/accidents and food. The nature of these cases range from class actions to a single plaintiff. The Group has extensive experience in substantive areas of importance to toxic tort litigation such as toxicology, epidemiology, chemical fate and transport and modeling and has represented clients in cases involving various chemicals and environmental agents.
