The trial lawyers in Johnson & Bell’s Toxic Tort group have won many high-profile, national cases involving natural and man-made disasters, chemical exposures, plant explosions and environmental contamination.

With attorneys licensed in Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, Johnson & Bell acts as national coordinating counsel, national trial counsel, regional counsel and MDL counsel for a variety of Fortune 1000 clients. Cases range from those involving “rapid response” or “bet the company,” to supplying services that include document database storage through our client-only extranet, building evidence necessary to try or coordinate national asbestos or chemical strategies, or engaging with the nation’s leading scientific experts to exclude claims based on junk science.

Johnson & Bell's attorneys have published articles relating to the defense of “low dose” defendants in national publications and are skilled in encouraging opposing counsel to remove clients from lists of regularly sued defendants by establishing a credible trial threat rather than paying to settle cases.

Client cases include claims involving exposure to:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Coal Dust
  • Diacetyl
  • Diatomaceous earth
  • Electromagnetic interference
  • Ethylene Oxide
  • Adulterated foods
  • Heavy metals

  • Talcum Powder
  • Lead
