Environmental Lititation and Mass Torts
The discharge of toxic chemicals, dangerous pesticides, and hazardous materials into the environment can have a devastating effect on the health, livelihood, and property values of those in the vicinity.
Wittels Law maintains an active practice representing victims of environmental torts. We also represent the victims of dangerous pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other products. For example, Steven Wittels served as co-counsel in over 200 Vioxx cases against the drug manufacturer Merck. The Vioxx class action settled for approximately $5 billion.
