Environmental & Toxic Torts

MDAFP handles a wide range of environmental and toxic tort matters, including claims involving exposure to asbestos, lead, mold, silica, and other chemicals.

Asbestos exposure continues to be a major source of litigation and we have successfully defended asbestos exposure claims up to and including trial and appeal. With the number of viableon-bankrupt defendants in asbestos litigation dwindling, plaintiffs’ firms are constantly seeking new avenues and novel theories to prosecute their claims. We represent defendants throughout the supply chain, including product manufacturers, suppliers, installers, end-users, and premises owners.

Our firm offers significant experience in defending lead paint poisoning claims across New York State. This unique complex litigation, with non-standard theories of liability, continues to be active, as plaintiffs claim permanent, irreversible brain damage, behavioral changes, and other neurological and physiological injuries as a result of lead-poisoning. We defend property owners, landlords, property managers, and agents throughout the state, who are alleged to have provided deficient housing. We also have experience defending employers and contractors in suits arising out of occupational exposure to lead.

MDAFP attorneys have extensive experience and knowledge in a wide range of other toxic exposure cases including:

• Mold
• Diesel Exhaust
• Solvents
• Benzene
• Silica
• Lead
