Experienced LA Toxic Tort Law Firm Represents the Injured
Skilled attorneys seek justice for victims of exposure in the area
Exposure to harmful chemicals can happen all at once during a chemical spill or slowly over time in the workplace. These chemicals, which pose dangers to people and the environment, can end up in the air, soil or water that people come in contact with every day. Whether you were exposed to toxic substances at work or through contamination in your local environment, this exposure can result in disease or injury. At Milling Benson Woodward L.L.P., we represent people in the area and throughout LA who have become ill through exposure to toxins. We will investigate the circumstances that led to your injury and seek appropriate compensation on your behalf.
What is a toxic tort claim?
Exposure to toxic chemicals can show up in many ways in the human body, from causing cancers and rare blood diseases to birth defects, mesothelioma and death. There are also more common illnesses that you might not immediately associate with toxic exposure, such as learning disabilities in children, chronic respiratory problems and other health challenges that can be directly related to sustained exposure to harmful chemicals. When you have received the diagnosis of a rare, deadly disease after years or even decades of exposure to harmful chemicals, you have a right to seek compensation. We will work to hold the negligent parties responsible for your injuries and accountable for your losses.
Proven advocates handle a range of toxic torts
Toxic torts tend to involve large numbers of individuals taking action against huge corporations, so they are often handled as a class action. Whether we represent a class made up of employees who were exposed in the workplace or an individual who has been harmed from taking a dangerous drug, we use our knowledge of this complex area of the law to obtain favorable settlements for our clients.
Our attorneys handle toxic tort cases stemming from:
- Environmental chemical exposure — Air, water, soil contamination by arsenic, pesticides, chemical spills, hazardous waste dumping, brownfields and other contaminated places
- Occupational exposure to toxic substances — Asbestos, poor indoor air quality, mold, radiation, solvents, benzene, lead, vinyl chloride and coal tar pitch
- Residential exposure — Asbestos exposure, mold contamination, off-gassing of the hazardous chemicals found in building materials and other contaminants found in the home
The discovery that you have been poisoned from exposure to hazardous substances can be frightening and infuriating. At Milling Benson Woodward L.L.P., we provide the strong advocacy your case deserves to hold negligent parties accountable.
What can a toxic torts attorney do for you?

We consult with a team of environmental scientists, medical professionals and investigators to prove the origin and extent of your illness or injury. We will press for full, fair compensation on your behalf for medical expenses now and in the future, lost wages and possibly diminished future earning capacity.
