Toxic Injury Lawyers Fight for Residents of New Jersey Exposed to Dangerous Chemicals and Products

People and communities that have been exposed to toxic substances run the risk of becoming ill and may face many other problems, including the loss of clean drinking water and stigma that depresses their property values. The kinds of toxic substances that are believed or known to cause illness to people and/or animals vary greatly and continue to grow in number. That list includes Benzene, Trichloroethylene (TCE), Chromium, Perchloroethylene (PCE), PDBE, Dioxin, PCDD, PCDFs, PCBs, TCDD, PFCs, BPA, Phthalates, PCE, TCE, vinyl chloride, pesticides, arsenic, lead, mercury or other potentially harmful substances:

  • Benzene, a known human carcinogen that is found in petroleum products, including gasoline, and other chemical compounds
  • BTEX, which stands for benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes.  These chemicals are some of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in petroleum derivatives
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PDBE), a compound used in flame retardants
  • Dioxin, which can refer to a number of persistent toxic chemical compounds that are by-products of various industrial and agricultural applications, including:
    • Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs)
    • Polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), also known as furans
    • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) that have dioxin-like properties
    • 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), perhaps the most well-studied polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin, believed to be toxic to humans and animals
  • Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), which are used in various applications to make materials stain, oil, and water resistant
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which were once widely used as dielectric and coolant fluids (e.g., in transformers, capacitors, and electric motors) but are now banned
  • Bisphenol A (BPA), a compound used to make polymers, resins and plastics, the regular commercial use of which has been largely discontinued
  • Phthalates, which were once common plasticizers, i.e., substances added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability, and longevity
  • Chlorinated solvents such as, perchloroethylene or tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE), used in dry-cleaning fluid, degreasing solvents, and many industrial applications
  • Vinyl chloride, a chlorinated compound and common breakdown product of TCE and PCE, which are commonly used chlorinated solvents
  • Pesticides, which refers to a mixture of chemical and other substances used to suppress or kill unwanted vegetative or animal species
  • Arsenic, which has properties that strengthen metals and alloys
  • Lead, a heavy metal with many uses and a reputation for toxicity in humans and animals
  • Mercury, another heavy metal with various scientific uses, many of which have been discontinued due to toxicity and health concerns
  • Asbestos, which refers to a number of naturally occurring minerals that were used in industrial and commercial applications because of desirable properties (e.g., heat resistance, sound absorption, and strength)

Our Attorneys
What clients are saying about us
  • "I highly recommend this law firm because they were responsive and sensitive to my needs and won. I chose this firm after having talked to 6 other firms because within minutes of contacting them I was able to speak to Mr. Lieberman himself. Mr. Lieberman and the junior attorneys did not make me feel small just because I am an individual, a mother, and not a big corporation. My phone calls & emails were returned promptly. They listened to exactly what I wanted & delivered. The defendant was nasty and ignored us and at times I felt like this was going nowhere. The attorneys worked well to reach a settlement that exceeded my expectations. Mr. Lieberman is a very seasoned lawyer who has compassion for his clients. The best thing about Mr. Lieberman is that he trains his staff to have that same level of compassion and respect for clients. " - Z.B., Jersey City, NJ

  • "I would like to personally thank Lieberman & Blecher for their help and advice to my family in dealing with an environmental cleanup issue. When it is a big company and their legal team against a small property owner, I have learned that you need an expert to protect your property and your rights. The team at Lieberman & Blecher did this for my family in a professional and cost effective manner. I would certainly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal assistance" - C.K., Woodbridge, NJ
