Description of Practice

The attorneys at GERMER have decades of experience in defending toxic tort suits at all phases of the litigation process, including trial. The firm's attorneys are knowledgeable about the products forming the basis of these suits, the strategies used by the attorneys brining these suits, and the “science” which often serves as the basis of the suits. The attorneys at GERMER are familiar with the experts who frequently testify in toxic tort cases, so they can quickly identify and retain the best experts, anticipate the approach that will be taken by the opposing side’s experts, and determine how to best defend against that approach.

The attorneys at GERMER have defended cases alleging exposure to a wide range of substances, including asbestos, benzene, mold, silica, and substances discharged from plants and refineries.   This experience includes the defense of Toxic Tort cases pleaded as products liability suits and as premises suits.

As toxic tort cases are frequently brought as mass tort suits, it is important that a firm have the flexibility, staff, and experience to defend the cases efficiently and yet be in a position to try the cases.  GERMER has these attributes.  Over the years, GERMER has assembled a team of partners, associates, paralegals, and staff who have handled some of the largest toxic tort cases in the State of Texas, and they possess the flexibility and knowledge necessary to adapt to the needs of the particular client.
