Butler is a rural community in Baltimore County, Maryland. It is bordered to the west by Glyndon, east by Sparks, south by Cockeysville, and north by Upperco. It is often referred to as "Worthington Valley". For almost a century it has served as home to many equestrian events including the Grand Nationals and the Hunt Cup. The history of the town is unknown. However, it has served as home to many of the states oldest and wealthiest families for at least 150 years. Butler also serves as home to two very historic churches. St. John's Episcopal Church serves as the burial place for many of Maryland's politicians from the late 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. Also, Black Rock Primitive Baptist Church is the site of the historic "Black Rock Address" which occurred on September 28, 1832. The "town" of Butler consists of a fire station, saddlery, liquor store, general store, post office (which is attached to the general store), and roughly 5 other smaller shops and businesses. Most of the area's land is preserved and home to historic landmark houses / estates making it one of the most picturesque places in Baltimore County. It forms a small commercial crossroads in the Western Run-Belfast Road Historic District. The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

What is toxic tort law?

Toxic Tort cases involve people who have been injured through exposure to dangerous pharmaceuticals or chemical substances in the environment, on the job, or in consumer products -- including carcinogenic agents, lead, benzene, silica, harmful solvents, hazardous waste, and pesticides to name a few.

Most toxic tort cases have arisen either from exposure to pharmaceutical drugs or occupational exposures. Most pharmaceutical toxic injury cases are mass tort cases, because drugs are consumed by thousands of people, many of whom become ill from a toxic drug. There have also been many occupational toxic tort cases, because industrial and other workers are often chronically exposed to toxic chemicals - more so than consumers and residents. Most of the law in this area arises from asbestos exposure, but thousands of toxic chemicals are used in industry and workers in these areas can experience a variety of toxic injuries. Unlike the general population, which is exposed to trace amounts of thousands of different chemicals in the environment, industrial workers are regularly exposed to much higher levels of chemicals and therefore have a greater risk of developing disease from particular chemical exposures than the general population. The home has recently become the subject of toxic tort litigation, mostly due to mold contamination, but also due to construction materials such as formaldehyde-treated wood and carpet. Toxic tort cases also arise when people are exposed to consumer products such as pesticides and suffer injury. Lastly, people can also be injured from environmental toxins in the air or in drinking water.
