Toxic chemical exposure
No firm in Rochester has handled more toxic exposure cases than Faraci Lange. Our attorneys are recognized both statewide and nationally for their expertise in this field. This is just one of the reasons that Faraci Lange has more lawyers listed in Best Lawyers in America than any personal injury firm in the entire State of New York.
Faraci Lange has successfully resolved over 400 cases including some of the most successful trial verdicts in Upstate New York. Faraci Lange has represented scores of workers from Eastman Kodak, Rochester Gas & Electric as well as members of virtually every construction trade who have developed mesothelioma and lung cancer from asbestos exposure on the job in the 1950s through the 1970s when precautions finally began to be taken. Hundreds of others developed the non-malignant diseases asbestosis and pleural asbestos disease from these exposures and have also obtained compensation with our help.
Although many of the asbestos companies have filed for bankruptcy, Faraci Lange continues to represent these victims both in lawsuits against solvent manufacturers and suppliers as well in the various bankruptcy court proceedings for the numerous bankrupt manufacturers.
Faraci Lange has also successfully handled a number of lead paint poisoning cases for children and their families who suffered from significant blood lead levels due to chipping pain and dust from doors and windows painted with lead based paints. Faraci Lange still has one of the highest verdicts ever received in Monroe County on behalf of a child poisoned by lead paint.
In 2001 Faraci Lange began a partnership with Masry & Vititoe, the firm made famous in the film Erin Brockovich and since that time has been involved in three major toxic groundwater and soil contamination cases in Upstate New York. These cases involve hundreds of people who were either made ill, are at risk of future illness, lost the enjoyment or use of their properties for significant periods of time while cleanup was progressing or had the value of their properties drastically reduced all as a result of pollution from nearby industrial facilities.
Faraci Lange has unmatched experience taking on some of the largest corporations in the world including General Electric Company and IBM and fighting for just compensation for these innocent victims of corporate greed and indifference to the health of the families who lived close to these plants.┬á
