Toxic Exposure Lawsuits & Industrial Chemicals

Toxic Tort Attorney and Workplace Accident Lawyer reviews Ohio toxic exposure lawsuits for injured plaintiffs nationwide


A new online resource developed at Columbia University has opened large areas of industrial inquiry regarding the corporate and regulatory histories of large American chemical companies. ToxicDocs is an online database that holds 20 million previously protected industry and trade association documents concerning the specific health hazards of various toxic chemicals like asbestos, lead, silica, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and other common toxins.

ToxicDocs obtained many of its documents from ongoing toxic exposure lawsuits and toxic tort litigation in the past 50 years. The information informs the public about which industries knowingly profited from public health hazards. This online platform provides a look into the inner workings of major chemical firms that sold toxic substances and products containing them.

The ToxicDocs data includes company memos, unpublished scientific studies, planning reports for PR campaigns, and corporate meeting minutes and presentations.

Toxic Exposure Lawsuits & Settlements

Bayer and Monsanto have recently been under pressure, and thousands of pending lawsuits that claim Roundup and the main active ingredient glyphosate cause cancer. A groundskeeper in California was recently awarded $289 million after he worked with Roundup for many years and later developed terminal case of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Johnson & Johnson is also battling more than 10,000 lawsuits that claim its baby powder products are linked to ovarian cancer, due to asbestos contamination. A jury this year awarded 22 women $4.6 billion in a product liability and personal injury lawsuit against the company. The jury decided J&J was aware of the alleged cancer risk for decades and suppressed evidence rather than warn American consumers.
