Protection of people and their property from large corporate polluters is very important. A unique feature of our environmental toxic tort practice is the ability to represent a large number of people harmed by damage to their property.
There are many types of major environmental pollutions. Examples include, air pollution, water pollution and soil contamination. The effect pollutants have on human health is serious and sometimes deadly.
- Air pollution is the release of chemicals and particulates into the atmosphere. Common examples include carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)
- Water pollution occurs via surface runoff, leaching to groundwater, liquid spills, or wastewater discharges.
- Soil contamination – among the most significant are hydrocarbons, heavy metals, MTBE, herbicides, pesticides and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Soil can become infertile and unsuitable for plants.
Our firm is experienced in these type cases and holds the largest private environmental settlement in U.S. history for PCB contamination – $700 million.
