Toxic Tort

Over the past 15 years Greensfelder’s attorneys have defended toxic tort claims alleging adverse health effects and/or property or other damage resulting from exposure to a wide array of products, including asbestos, benzene, silica and others. Our attorneys have defended manufacturers, distributors and installers of asbestos-containing products. This practice includes the defense of matters involving both product liability and premises liability.

We have represented companies in thousands of asbestos matters, in turn resolving these matters through settlements, voluntary dismissals and dismissals through motions to dismiss as well as summary judgment. We have represented a broad range of defendants, who have manufactured, distributed or installed friction products, valves, furnaces, gaskets, cement, boilers, insulation, electrical products, respirators and consumer products. Our broad representation of premises defendants includes manufacturing companies, refineries, chemical plants, paper mills, rubber plants, automotive service centers and mining companies and in turn we have represented building contractors who have constructed and repaired various premises.

Due to the Firm’s geographic location in Metropolitan St. Louis, Southern Illinois and the greater Chicago area, we have significant experience working in the most challenging asbestos venues in the country, including Madison County and Cook County of Illinois and the City of St. Louis, Missouri. Our office in Swansea, Illinois is also one of the largest private practice firms in Southern Illinois. Our presence, experience and reputation allows us to provide the best possible representation for our clients. The members of the toxic tort practice group continue this tradition, by providing the highest quality legal representation and in a manner consistent with out clients’ business objectives.
