Toxic Torts

Zielke Law Firm has experience defending businesses against “toxic tort” claims. 

We represent manufacturers and users of substances in defense against individual claims and potential class actions for bodily injury and loss of property value due to exposure or proximity to hazardous materials, including hazardous waste sites. 

Toxic tort litigation frequently is related to state and federal environmental enforcement activity. Zielke Law Firm is experienced in civil and criminal defense of enforcement actions and citizen suits involving all major federal environmental statutes, such as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, Superfund, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act, and many state and local environmental laws. The firm also counsels clients about environmental regulatory compliance efforts.
