What is general environmental?

There are many types of major environmental pollutions such examples include, air pollution, water pollution and soil contamination. The effect pollutions have on human health is serious and some times deadly.

• Air pollution is the release of chemicals and particulates into the atmosphere. Common examples include carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Adverse air quality can kill many organisms including humans. Ozone pollution can cause respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, throat inflammation, chest pain, and congestion.

• Water pollution via surface runoff, leaching to groundwater, liquid spills, wastewater discharges, eutrophication and littering and soil contamination this occurs when chemicals are released by spill or underground storage tank leakage. Water pollution causes approximately 14,000 deaths per day, mostly due to contamination of drinking water by untreated sewage in developing countries.

• Soil contamination among the most significant are hydrocarbons, heavy metals, MTBE, herbicides, pesticides and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Soil can become infertile and unsuitable for plants. This will affect other organisms in the food web.

Our firm has handled many types of environmental cases such as, air emissions, PFOA-PFOS and underground storage tanks.

One such case involved a $20.7 million verdict to the City of Columbus, Georgia, Action Marine, Inc., and two individuals in an air pollution lawsuit filed against Continental Carbon and its parent company, China Synthetic Rubber Corporation.
