Toxic exposure cases pose a unique challenge. Counsel must prepare to understand a highly technical defense that will typically involve multiple experts and consultants. Defending exposure claims requires an attorney that is educated and experienced in these type cases, and is familiar with the myriad of environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as well as the regulations promulgated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and state environmental enforcement agencies pursuant to federal environmental laws.
