Toxic Tort: Asbestos Litigation & TALC Defense

Pinnacle Investigations’ research analysts and investigative teams provide US Fortune 100 Companies, international cosmetics companies and legal professionals nationwide the information they need to mitigate asbestos claims and the growing litigation involving cosmetic talc. The largest providers in the talc industry have been proactively defending their litigation with the expertise of Pinnacle Investigations and their staff, who are continually trained to be adept at navigating the ever-changing myriad of resources available in today’s technical research environment.

What We Do

Our team of trained analysts conducts in-depth research of each plaintiff’s background to provide information which demonstrates alternate exposures; pointing out where and when they were actually exposed to asbestos in their lifetime. Through targeted searches of proprietary databases, public and open-source records, a thorough profile is created of your plaintiff and their relatives, which returns actionable intelligence beyond what is typically garnered through deposition testimony alone.

This provides Pinnacle’s clients with a thorough understanding of each plaintiff’s background prior to taking their deposition so that all possible alternate exposures can be fully explored. Knowing this history can aide in strategizing the defense, when too often the information provided by plaintiff is vague, incomplete and/or deceptive. Pinnacle’s Investigative Report, delivered prior to deposition, will provide a clear understanding of business affiliations, employment and educational experiences of not only the plaintiff, but also of their parents, spouses and children. This might demonstrate take-home exposures which could have been a key source of their diagnosis, and a key factor in the handling of the litigation of plaintiff’s claims involving the client company.

Our team of Research Analysts, in tandem with vetted Associates in the United Kingdom, affords Pinnacle the reach to assist clients with the ever-expanding involvement of overseas plaintiffs filing talc litigation in the United States.  They are also adept at providing the following:

  • Extended Investigations
  • International Investigations
  • Witness Location & Detailed Interviews
  • Asbestos Abatement Records
  • Building Permits
  • Property Records

Results are provided electronically in a well-written report with active links to pertinent exhibits.

Let Pinnacle Investigations and our proven track record of nearly thirty (30) years of global investigations be your Investigative Partner.
