Toxic Tort

Our attorneys have been handling multi-jurisdictional toxic tort litigation for decades and have considerable experience in cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, and more. We have handled every aspect of these types of cases from pre-suit negotiation, discovery, trial, and appeal.

We specialize in the defense of asbestos, silica, and chemical litigation claims throughout the Midwest. Our clients include manufacturers of industrial paints and solvents, pesticides, silica flour, and asbestos-containing products. We have also represented business owners and landlords in cases involving lead poisoning and manufacturing of products that produce toxic agents.

KPD has successfully defended against “junk science” claims and have defeated such theories by appropriate pre-trial motions. In addition, we have defended against novel theories of damages, including chemically induced AIDS, fear of contracting cancer in the future, and recovery for medical monitoring.

No matter the claim, our highly skilled team of toxic tort and environmental attorneys will aggressively defend cases large and small. Our commitment is to resolve tort claims quickly and efficiently while providing our signature concierge service and the best possible defense to our clients.
