In today’s word, the environment is rife with pollutants, and despite the best efforts of the various environmental health agencies, many people are affected by toxins and contamination every year. The various pollutants that contaminate our world can have a range of harmful effects, including chronic and even fatal effects.
Environmental contamination can have an adverse effect on our health, our property and our quality of life, and as such there may be grounds for claiming damages. This will depend largely upon the type of contamination, the source of contamination, and the level of damage. However, pursuing a damages case can be a long and frustrating process, and by using an environmental lawyer you can help to increase your chances of success when looking to claim damages.
It is important that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible when you realise that you or your property has been affected by environmental contamination. Thorough research is required in order to put forward a case with potential, and an environmental lawyer is the person to do this, however this may take time and this is one of the reasons that you need to seek assistance early one.
An environmental lawyer will have the necessary experience and resources to help you file a successful claim, and will be able to offer advice on the potential success of your claim for damages as well as put together the facts and carry out any necessary research. A good environmental lawyer will also help to determine which party or parties are responsible for the pollution and contamination for which you are seeking damages, and can formulate the best plan of action to pursue your claim.
The type of pollutants that may have caused harm or damage to you or your property include asbestos, lead, toxic mold and a variety of other toxic substances that can cause a great deal of harm to your health and living environment. However, you may also be seeking damages from another party for nuisance and trespass, which also come under the environmental law umbrella. Whatever the circumstances, an environmental lawyer will be able to offer advice on the likelihood of success, and can guide you through the process step by step.
Due to statutes of limitation, which can differ from state to state, you may have only a limited time within which to file your claim for damages, and you must therefore act quickly. Depending upon the type of pollution and the nature of the contamination, claims may be filed against parties such as manufacturers and distributors of the substance source, a landlord or property owner, an insurance company, or any other party deemed responsible for the contamination.
