At McMahon, Martine & Gallagher, our toxic and mass torts practice has decades of legal experience, litigating these complex cases in state and federal court. These matters require uncommon expertise in handling cases involving sometimes thousands of parties and cutting-edge familiarity with specialized science and medicine. We have experienced trial attorneys who have taken toxic tort cases to trial and obtained multiple defense verdicts. Our full-range law and motion practice has been successful in defeating class certification, disposing of cases at the pretrial stage, and negotiating favorable settlements.


Our vast experience in toxic torts has involved litigating claims of lung disease, including pulmonary fibrosis, reactive airways disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, mesothelioma, and other pulmonary diseases; as well as exposure to mold, pesticides, asbestos, trace benzene, radiation, lead paint, welding rod fumes, and other chemicals and minerals.
