Chicago, IL Toxic Tort Attorney

DuPage County Toxic Chemical Injury Attorney

Representing Victims of Chemical or Toxic Injuries in Cook County and Throughout Illinois

There are numerous substances that are known to cause harm to individuals. Sadly, many companies continue to expose employees and consumers to toxic substances, without regard for the health and well-being of the public. If you or someone close to you has suffered injury, illness, or death due to a harmful substance, you may be eligible to file a toxic tort claim.

At Sinson Law Group, we understand the physical, emotional, and financial pain families go through when a loved one suffers harm from a toxic substance. Attorney Kent Sinson has extensive knowledge of toxic torts, and our team has been involved in numerous individual lawsuits on behalf of the victims. Kent is straightforward and down-to-earth. He is not afraid to go up against big corporations and their deep pockets, because he believes they need to be held fully accountable, not only for the sake of the victims and their families, but also to ensure that these companies stop needlessly putting the public at risk.

Common Types of Toxic Torts

There are countless toxins that are considered hazardous. Some of the most common substances involved in toxic tort litigation include:

  • Asbestos: A mineral used in the production of insulation and various other products, and as a flame retardant in certain industries. Repeated asbestos exposure has been linked to adverse health conditions such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.
  • Toxic Paint-Related Substances: There are several chemicals used in paint that can be harmful to your health if ingested or inhaled. Examples include ethanol, xylene, methyl alcohol, and benzyl alcohol.
  • Benzene: A hydrocarbon that is used in the refining of fuel, as well for manufacturing in certain industries. Benzene has been linked to leukemia, and it has been known to damage the body's internal organs.
  • Toxins in the Home: Consumers often breathe in harmful substances in their own home, such as mold, pesticides, and toxins within certain cleaning products.
  • Pharmaceutical Drugs: Many pharmaceuticals contain harmful substances that can cause all kinds of unintended side-effects.

Toxic exposure often affects a group of people, such as employees of a certain company. In such cases, a lawsuit may be filed against the manufacturer, distributor, and other parties who are responsible for the exposure.
