Over recent years, public awareness about environmental health problems, contamination and pollution has increased considerably. As much of the civilised world as adopted a ‘green’ attitude, it has become all too clear that the planet is rife with pollutants and hazards that need to be dealt with. And although measures have been, and still are being taken, for many people and areas the damage has already been done.
This raised awareness of environmental dangers and health also made people realise that there were environmental lawyers on hand to help them in the case of damage or injury caused by polluters. Litigation covered by environmental lawyers can include toxic torts, environmental issues and chemical contamination.
Toxic litigation cases are designed to fight for people who have been injured or affected through environmental contamination. This litigation, known as toxic tort cases, can involve and individual, a group or family, or even a whole community. The nature of toxic contamination means that there is a good chance that the toxins and pollutants will affect everyone within a certain area, and therefore they are all eligible to file a toxic tort lawsuit.
Legal representation in the case of toxic torts can enable both individuals and groups to seek compensation from the manufacturers or the parties responsible for the pollution that caused the toxic effect. These chemicals and pollutants are often deadly, and it is therefore deemed only right that the people responsible for the contamination are made to pay for the damage caused.
One of the most common forms of toxic tort contamination is groundwater pollution. This could be through a number of harmful contaminants such as chromium, mercury, benzene, pesticides and other toxins. Your environmental lawyer would have to carry out thorough research to show that the damage or injury was caused intentionally or through negligence or carelessness. It is therefore advisable to contact an environmental lawyer as early as possible should you feel that you are entitled to file for compensation.
Also, some states may have statutes of limitation, which can vary depending upon which state you are filing your case in. Again, this is a reason to seek legal assistance as early as possible to increase your chances of success. Your lawyer will then have the time to do the necessary research in order to put together as watertight a case as possible.Whether the contamination has adversely affected the people or the environment in which they live, it is always worth seeking legal advice. Environmental lawyers are experienced professionals that are able to help individuals, families and communities get some form of compensation for environmental contamination if the pollution resulted from intention, negligence or lack of care.
