Toxic Exposure

Yost Legal Group Toxic Torts

Exposure to a toxic substance can have life-changing consequences. The dangers can be in your home, your workplace, or even in your child’s school. It is the duty of landlords, business owners, and corporations to ensure the safety of their residents, workers, and customers.

But sometimes they fail to do so. It is not your fault if you are harmed by a toxic substance in an environment you were promised was safe. The home you live in, the office you work in, and the products you buy should be safe and trusted.

Cases

The attorneys at the Yost Legal Group have decades of experience handling toxic exposure litigation:

Lead Paint Poisoning 

Childhood lead paint poisoning can be one of the biggest toxic threats to a child’s health and development, leading to complications such as ADHD, aggressive criminal behavior, and learning difficulties. The federal government outlawed the use of lead-based paint in residential settings in 1978. If you or a loved one has been exposed to lead paint, click here for more information.


Talcum Power

The regular use of talcum powder in the genital area has been linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Johnson & Johnson knew about this increased risk of ovarian cancer for years but failed to warn the public and continued to aggressively market the use of products like Shower to Shower™ and Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder™. If you or a loved one has been hurt by this product, learn more about our talcum powder litigation here.


Asbestos

Asbestos was included in many construction and heavy industry products and worksites for years in America. Just a brief exposure to the substance can lead to the development of mesothelioma. Workers who brought home dusty clothes may have exposed themselves and their family members to levels of asbestos high enough to lead to the development of mesothelioma decades later.

Roundup

The Yost Legal Group is actively pursuing claims for individuals diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after continuous use of Glyphosate. Glyphosate is the active ingredient found in the common herbicide Round Up. The manufacturer of Roundup, Monsanto, failed to warn its customers of the possibility of cancer associated with repeated use of its product. If your loved one has been hurt by this herbicide, learn more about our litigation here.


Groundwater Contamination

Clean water is essential to all life. When big corporations contaminate the water in the ground, they place everyone at risk. Groundwater is most commonly contaminated from runoff from factory farming, fracking, and leaks or spills of chemical contaminants.
