Landowners are liable for damages arising out of toxic substances found on their property. Many landowners fail to remedy known toxic hazards on their properties and expose their tenants, employees and property visitors to an unreasonable risk of harm.
Toxic substances can result in many illnesses, including mesothelioma and other cancers, nausea, bronchitis, and respiratory failure. A variety of hazardous substances are commonly found on Missouri properties, including:
- Lead-based paint
- Fluids drained from motor vehicles
- Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
- Trichloroethane (TCE)
Individuals injured by toxic substances are often entitled to compensation from the companies or individuals who manufactured, sold and improperly stored the toxic substance, as well as property owners or occupants who failed to adequately protect others from the toxic substance.
