Toxic tort cases, whether they arise from allegations of exposure to asbestos or some other substance, are often approached differently than other personal injury cases by courts and plaintiffs' attorneys. Whether it is the implementation of local rules, or the approach taken by a particular attorney or expert, a successful defense in a toxic tort case requires an understanding of the factors at play on a particular jurisdiction's toxic tort docket. These types of cases also require that the successful defense counsel stay abreast of the changing landscape of electronic filing and service procedures, in order to successfully track and manage the volume of litigated cases that a defendant may face. At CLG we have years of experience with the toxic tort venues of Madison County, Illinois, St. Clair County, Illinois, and St. Louis, Missouri.
