Company Settles Toxic Tort

Christopher P. Wesierski (Senior Partner/Irvine Office) and a team of 5 from the firm defended an action on behalf of a company who was sued along with another 100 plus defendants for toxic chemical exposure when a plaintiff claimed she needed a lung transplant due to exposure at the chemical plant over a number of years.

The judge made their company the lead defendant and after numerous efforts the company was extricated from the lawsuit at a settlement cheaper than everyone else in the case paid.

The other defendants settled out early while the company the firm represented eventually settled with an agreement they would never be sued again and they have not been by this attorney.

The firm was lead counsel throughout the case with all witnesses for cross and direct and as to voir dire and opening etc.
