Toxic Torts

When chemical plants and barges move hazardous materials near your home, the potential for dangerous exposure is real. If you have suffered from injuries or illness from a chemical plant, lead paint exposure, the transportation of hazardous materials or from any other dangerous substance or condition, let the attorneys at Clayton, Frugé, & Ward help.

We have successfully handled numerous cases involving injuries from a range of toxic materials and sources, including:

  • Benzene spilled from a barge
  • Lead paint in housing projects
  • Inhaled poisons
  • Explosions that release toxic substances into the air

We handle both single-plaintiff cases and class action suits involving hundreds of individuals, even entire communities. We were involved in a benzene spill case that resulted in the evacuation of an entire community and were co-trial lawyers for a New Orleans lead paint poisoning case in which numerous housing project residents had elevated blood lead levels. Each case settled for high-value amounts.

We also help clients to prevent hazardous material accidents, by working with chemical companies that set up operations in Louisiana. For more information and to schedule a consultation, please contact our firm.
