Toxic Tort Lawyers in New York
Leaders in Toxic Tort Litigation from Coast to Coast
As a consumer, employee, or person in your own home, you trust that the products you use and the environment in which you live and work will be relatively safe – or at least free from hazardous substances that could cause you and your family harm. The unfortunate reality is that some products and environments pose serious health hazards to innocent people.

Whether we are handling individual lawsuits, class actions, or mass torts related to toxic exposure, we fight tirelessly to see justice served.

Types of Toxic Torts We Handle
Our New York toxic tort attorneys have experience with cases involving benzene, vinyl chloride, latex, lead, talc, asbestos, and Roundup weed killer. We have dealt with toxic torts involving:
- Workplace Exposure: Certain industries, such as manufacturing, mining, and even firefighting or construction can place a worker at risk of exposure to such toxins as asbestos, lead, or others. This can lead to serious health problems in workers and even their families, if substances are carried home on their clothing and shoes.
- Environmental Contamination: The environment in which we live and work can be contaminated by toxins that affect the air we breathe, the surfaces we touch, and the water we drink, bathe in, and cook with. Our team handles environmental contamination lawsuits with diligence, holding at-fault parties accountable.
- Consumer Products: With our product liability experience, we seek to hold at-fault manufacturers and other parties accountable for producing or distributing consumer products that contain lead or other hazardous substances that endanger the health of unsuspecting users.
The Sultzer Law Group P.C. is currently investigating claims against Monsanto, manufacturer of the weed killer Roundup, which has been associated with cancer. Thousands of claims have been filed against Monsanto to date, alleging the manufacturer knew of the health risks and suppressed this information. Monsanto has denied that Roundup is carcinogenic, but the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer linked glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, to cancer, listing the herbicide as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
If you have been diagnosed with cancer after exposure to Roundup, our attorneys are standing by to offer a free consultation and review of your case.
Our firm is at the forefront of the fight against opioid manufacturers, who may be responsible for the opioid epidemic currently affecting the entire U.S. Since 1999, opioid prescriptions have increased by 300% in the U.S. Now recognized as highly addictive, opioid pain relievers are the subject of lawsuits filed by hundreds of city, county, and state governments against pharmaceutical companies and others in the medical and opioid industries.
