Areas of Practice
DescriptionAn advocate for people harmed by toxic exposure, chemical-related cancers and other occupational diseases and smoking-related illnesses, Scott Hall has spent more than 15 years working to hold accountable corporations that put profits before people.Today, he continues to represent people suffering from work-related illnesses such as lung diseases in cases against the companies that allegedly harmed them.Scott advocates for workers and consumers harmed by inhaling flavoring chemicals such as diacetyl and acetyl propionyl, which have been associated with severe lung diseases often collectively referred to as Popcorn Workers’ Lung, even though many workers, not just those in microwave popcorn manufacturing, have been affected. In the early 2000s, Scott successfully represented workers who had developed serious lung diseases after exposure to airborne flavoring chemicals in some of the first cases of their kind.* Since then, he has tried more than a dozen lawsuits against the flavoring industry that resulted in plaintiffs’ verdicts. Additionally, Scott participated in the resolution of more than 100 cases for people who alleged wrongful death or injuries as a result of exposure to dangerous chemical flavorings.*His early work in toxic exposure included taking cases to trial as well as settling tobacco cases. His work led to multi-million dollar verdicts in tobacco-related personal injury and wrongful death cases.* He was also contracted by the Canadian government to represent the Provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador in a cost-recovery action against the tobacco industry. Scott has also taken cases to trial and settled environmental contamination cases, including cases involving air pollution and groundwater pollution by industrial chemicals. In 1997, Scott wrote one of the first peer-reviewed articles on the regulation of genetically modified organisms (GMO) and their impact on the environment. The article, titled The Genie in the Bottle: The International Regulation of Genetically Modified Organisms, was published in the Journal of International Wildlife Law & Policy.*Prior results do not guarantee future results. Every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
