Each year the Environmental Protection Agency implements countless national environmental laws. When a company fails to put these environmental laws into effect, they are liable for the injuries, and property damage, that result from any toxins they emit. These toxins can include dry cleaning chemicals and solvents, pesticides and herbicides, industrial chemicals, asbestos, among others.
Environmental litigation can be very complex. In all its complexities, however, the laws agree that if a company or employer has exposed individuals to harmful toxins while failing to act with reasonable prudence for the circumstances, they are negligent and, therefore, responsible for their actions.
Protecting people, and their property, from large corporate polluters is the primary focus of this type of litigation. This ensures that victims can seek compensation for the emotional, mental, and physical injuries they experienced as a result of being exposed to toxic hazard.
