Areas of Practice

Toxic Tort

Over the past 20 years Greensfelder’s attorneys have defended toxic tort claims alleging adverse health effects, property, and other damages resulting from exposure to a wide array of products, including asbestos, benzene, silica, and other chemical and industrial products.  Our attorneys have defended manufacturers, distributors, and installers of asbestos-containing products.  This practice includes the defense of matters involving both product and premises liability.

We have represented small and large global companies in thousands of asbestos matters, resolving matters through settlements, voluntary dismissals, summary judgment, and trial practice.  We have represented a broad range of defendants, who have manufactured, distributed, or installed friction products, valves, furnaces, gaskets, cranes, cement, boilers, talc, insulation, electrical products, respirators, and various construction 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.  Additionally, we have represented residential and commercial 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 in 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 allow us to provide the best possible representation for our clients. The members of the asbestos and toxic torts practice group continue this tradition by providing the highest quality legal representation in a manner consistent with our clients’ business objectives.
