Tort Recourse with the Lawyers at BNI
If an intentional tort was committed against you, contact Brotman Nusbaum Ibrahim & Adelman. They are lawyers committed to justice and will take the necessary measures to defend you in any manner of cases. If you’re wondering what exactly a tort is, it’s when a wrongful act or infringement of a right leads to civil legal liability. For example, if a driver hurts another driver during a car accident because they weren’t paying attention, or if you slip on a slippery floor and get hurt as a result. Although these are accidental, there is also deliberate intent to cause harm, such as assault, fraud, defamation, and others.
Another example of such harm is called a toxic tort, where the injury results from wrongful exposure to a harmful chemical or biological substance (which could be through ingestion, inhalation, skin contact, or skin absorption). There are many cases under this legal term, such as being exposed to lead paint which in some cases has resulted in brain damage, exposure to asbestos which can cause lung cancer, pesticides, toxic molds, electromagnetic fields, and more. Toxic substances are regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The EPA screens these chemicals and require reporting of such that can pose an environmental risk. It’s actually quite common for people to have been exposed to such a toxic substance due to many reasons, and in many of such cases, there could have been negligence involved, liability, misrepresentation, amongst other things that warrant an investigation, and thus, a legal case.
It could be rather complicated to file a civil suit against someone who harmed you, and many are not aware of what needs to be done or discovered in order to prove you were injured due to intent or negligence. Brotman Nusbaum Ibrahim & Adelman will work hard to do what they can to gather all of this information, but you should also be aware of the following in order to know you have a case to begin with: That the other party had the duty or obligation to act responsibly and what the scope of that duty is, that there was a breach of that duty of care, that there is negligent causation, and that there was harm as a result of all of this.
