Toxic exposure lawsuits sometimes arise in situations affecting large numbers of people. Recent examples in West Virginia included:
- Lawsuits against American Electric Power regarding exposure to dangerous chemicals from coal waste
- Lawsuits against Freedom Industries regarding spillage into the Elk River of a chemical foam used to purify coal
In both clusters of cases, injuries affected many people among the general public.
Other toxic exposure cases arise from one-time events affecting one person or just a few people. Workplace injuries caused by exposure to toxic fumes or chemicals may involve solitary workers or small groups of workers in one location. Toxic exposure injuries are common in the aviation industry, coal mining, the fracking industry and manufacturing settings.
