Understanding Toxic Torts in Alabama
A toxic tort case involves any civil wrong arising from exposure to a toxic substance, such as asbestos. If you have been needlessly harmed from such exposure, you have the right to file a lawsuit against the parties that allowed this exposure to take place. These kinds of injuries are especially common in the workplace. Unlike workers’ compensation claims, however, these occupational torts frequently involve third parties, such as chemical manufacturers or property owners. Toxic torts are notoriously complex cases that require a knowledgeable and aggressive personal injury lawyer.
Defending You & Yours in the Event of Wrongful Death
Wrongful death in Alabama is defined in Ala. Code § 6-5-410 as “the wrongful act, omission, or negligence of any person, persons, or corporation, his or their servants or agents, whereby the death of his testator or intestate was caused, provided the testator or intestate could have commenced an action for such wrongful act, omission, or negligence if it had not caused death.” In plain English, it’s a death that could have been avoided. Such an event is undoubtedly traumatizing for all friends and family involved, and retribution is deserved. The grieving process is difficult enough without the added financial hardship associated with medical and hospital bills, funeral costs, and more. At Warren Freeman Attorney at Law, we are committed to helping those who have been left behind, and to see that justice is served to the negligent wrongdoers.
