Briggs and Morgan attorneys who practice in toxic torts litigation have counseled and defended both manufacturers, installers, suppliers and product sellers in the area of asbestos, talc, tobacco, benzene, TDI, Ephedra, chemical vapors and silica. We have successfully defended corporations (including Fortune 500s) on a local, regional and national level, and have served as coordinating and trial counsel for clients with claims across the country, including challenging jurisdictions like New York, Southern Illinois and California.
Mass toxic tort litigation has evolved and our attorneys have evolved with it. We have remained on the cutting edge of scientific and evidentiary issues facing clients and understand the importance of expert development in toxic tort claims.
Collectively, our attorneys have attended hundreds of toxic tort-related depositions and have tried numerous asbestos-related and chemical vapor lawsuits around the country, including through verdict. Our lawyers have served as liaison counsel in multi-district litigation and successfully tried Daubert challenges.
We understand the potential for significant jury awards facing clients in toxic tort claims and the importance of investigating all aspects of the allegations. In our approach, we work closely with our clients to develop the best individual defense strategy.
