Dangerous Chemicals and Materials on Construction Sites

Providing effective construction industry defense in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky

More than once the next miracle construction material was ultimately found to cause serious health problems after long-term exposure. This creates a minefield of liability for manufacturers, construction companies and even property owners who have worked with such materials. And because of the lengthy statutes of repose in most states, contractors and builders can face continued liability exposure from a particular project years after it is completed. For these reasons, members of the construction industry who face exposure to this type of toxic tort liability need an experienced and practical legal team on their side. Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe has built an excellent reputation throughout West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky for providing toxic tort defense. Our attorneys help clients construct a broad strategy for dealing with toxic tort liability exposure and use their experience to determine the best course of action on a case-by-case basis.

Toxic tort defense for construction companies and contractors

Many construction materials contain elements that can be dangerous to building inhabitants or workers if they are not properly installed or treated. Flaws in construction and design, such as poor ventilation, can also create environmental hazards that can have long-term health effects. We help clients defend themselves against claims involving various materials and systems, including:

  • Lead paint
  • Asbestos
  • Drywall
  • Sealants
  • HVAC systems
  • Plumbing systems

Recent years have seen a fair amount of litigation by building inhabitants against contractors and construction companies in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky regarding these issues. And for most defendants, one case is only the beginning. That is why our attorneys at Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe work with our construction industry clients to form a big-picture strategy for these types of cases.

Toxic tort defense for construction material manufacturers

Many of the hazardous attributes of construction chemicals and materials are an unavoidable aspect of their functions. Nevertheless, allegations that a manufacturer failed to provide adequate warnings regarding potential hazards and safe handling can subject manufacturers to products liability claims. Current and former construction industry workers who develop chronic conditions or cancers frequently place the blame on the companies that produced the products they used during their careers. These cases can be complex and extremely technical, requiring the insight and experience of a knowledgeable toxic torts attorney.
