Toxic chemicals can be present in a variety of places, including pharmaceuticals, consumer products, the environment, and buildings such as a home or an office building. State and federal laws impose certain obligations on the disclosure, storage and disposal of hazardous substances. Failure to obey these requirements can make a property owner liable under a premises liability legal theory for any injuries or damages that the hazardous substance causes.
Premises liability is a complex legal theory, especially when it involves injuries and damages caused by toxic chemicals. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident caused by a hazardous substance, contact the knowledgeable toxic chemicals attorneys at Ankin Law Offices to discuss your case.
