Virginia Toxic Tort Defense Attorneys

Virginia Toxic Tort Defense Attorneys

For many years, Virginia has been fertile ground for toxic tort litigation, including cases involving asbestosis, silicosis, lead paint, mold, and Chinese drywall.  For over 40 years, McKenry Dancigers Dawson has specialized in defending local governments, businesses, and individuals in toxic tort cases. Product manufacturers and suppliers have historically been the targets of such claims, but with each passing year, and the increasing number of bankruptcies, the scope of such suits have broadened to include landlords, property owners, contractors, subcontractors, and employers. Defendants, whether self-insured or through their insurance carriers, can develop strategies to deal with such suits and associated defense costs.   McKenry Dancigers Dawson can assist clients in developing and implementing strategies to deal with toxic tort suits in a cost effective manner, and yet still mount an effective and target specific defense. Our experience in these areas also allows us to work efficiently and proactively to resolve meritorious cases in a cost-effective manner consistent with the client’s goals. We have the knowledge, experience, and facilities to effectively represent parties in mass toxic tort matters, as well as specific matters that may occasionally arise from a release of a hazardous or toxic substance.

Our Virginia litigation lawyers will help you and your legal team navigate the Eastern District of Virginia’s “Rocket Docket,” where trials often happen within 10 months of filing and where the court strictly enforces its deadlines in the Rule 16(b) Scheduling Order, including the local rule where discovery objections are due within 15 days, not 30 days. We are very familiar with removals to federal court, motions to remand to state court, as well as Rule 12(b) motions to transfer venue, challenge personal jurisdiction, or dismiss a case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. Our Virginia trial lawyers will also guide you through the sometimes archaic procedural rules found in Virginia state courts, including when and how to “crave oyer” and the rare times in which summary judgment can be granted in Virginia Circuit Court. The Virginia lawyers at McKenry Dancigers Dawson have handled cases in the Alexandria, Richmond, and Norfolk divisions of the Rocket Docket, as well as the Western District of Virginia.  Our lawyers have also appeared in every Circuit Court in Virginia.
