Asbestos Defense & Toxic Tort


Asbestos Defense

OMW has been a leader in asbestos defense for nearly 40 years and as a result understands what makes these matters unique. We are familiar with the local courts’ protocols for handling asbestos cases and adept at working within this system to promptly and efficiently resolve asbestos cases.

When warranted by the facts, we will also aggressively defend asbestos cases, including summary judgment on product identification and issues regarding whether the product included asbestos-containing materials. We work with experts on causation and exposure, along with medical experts, especially in the area of lung diseases.

Toxic Tort

As the number of products on the market expands and the awareness of the ecological and personal health effects of those products increases, toxic tort litigation plays a large role in society. We have expertise in all aspects of toxic torts, including

  • Environmental contamination of property
  • Exposure of individuals to toxic chemicals
  • Nuisance and trespass issues

We have engaged in litigation regarding products ranging from asbestos to zinc. Our toxic tort litigation has involved, among others

  • Fertilizer
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Insulation
  • Gasoline
  • Articulate matter
  • Chemical exposure

The cases we have handled range from single-exposure incidents to national and class action litigation.
