Toxic Tort Litigation

We began defending toxic tort cases in the 1980s, beginning with asbestos and silica lawsuits. Over the years we have been called on by insurers and other companies to assist in the defense of mass tort lawsuits involving mixed dust, chemical soup, benzene, pharmaceutical products, nutritional supplements, mold and a variety of other alleged toxic substances.

With the advent of tort reform, we have defended clients in asbestos and silica lawsuits assigned to the two multi-district litigation (MDL) courts created to manage all asbestos and silica lawsuits filed in the Texas state courts. From the filing of the complaint until the lawsuit is returned to the original court, we are there to defend our clients. As a result, our firm has gained invaluable knowledge about the MDL courts, the administrative management of the lawsuits in those courts and rulings by the MDL judges that directly impact our clients.
