A toxic tort occurs when an individual sustains personal or physical injuries and/or property damage due to contact with or exposure to harmful chemical substances or foreign substances. Such contact or exposure can result on adverse health effects to an individual or damage to property. This may occur by a variety of mechanisms, such as ingestion of water or food sources, pharmaceuticals and drugs, through the air, or by other means of direct physical exposure. Personal exposure to toxic substances may occur in the home, in the workplace, or in public places.
