Toxic Tort Law
For many years, HeplerBroom has been actively involved in representing clients with toxic tort exposure. We have the knowledge and experience necessary to defend your company in this highly volatile area of the law.
Madison County, Cook County, and St. Louis City jurisdictions are sites of a large number of lawsuits involving a variety of toxic torts, including asbestos, benzene, welding fume, thimerosal, vinyl-chloride, and many others. With offices in Madison County, Springfield, Chicago, and Crystal Lake, Illinois, as well as St. Louis, Missouri, and Hammond, Indiana, HeplerBroom is well situated to handle cases throughout the Midwest.
Our team has extensive experience developing legal defenses on toxic tort matters. As a result, we have developed a library of legal, medical, and professional literature related to asbestos, erionite, and various other allegedly toxic and/or carcinogenic substances. In addition, our toxic tort lawyers maintain close working relationships with expert witnesses who are available to consult on claims. We utilize knowledge, experience, and resources to build a defense for your company and to promote early resolution. However, if trial is necessary, our trial team has the experience, skills, and commitment to take a case through jury trials and the appellate process.
