Environmental Injury Lawsuits

We Connect You With Experienced Injury Lawyers That Will Fight For You!

An environmental disease lawsuit is a particular type of personal injury lawsuit in which the injured plaintiff claims that exposure to a chemical caused the plaintiff’s injury or disease. There are more than 7 million accidental poisonings each year in the U. S. with more than 75% involving children under the age of six.

People are exposed to toxic chemicals from the environment, pharmaceuticals, from consumer products, in the home, and at work. Occupational environmental toxic tort cases occur more often than any other due to the fact that industrial workers are more likely to suffer from long-term exposure to toxic chemicals than consumers or residents.

Environmental law governs any environmental issues regarding businesses, individuals, and government entities. Environment law includes regulations and cleanup regarding hazardous or chemical materials and the consequences of individuals who violate environment statutes. Environmental law provides protection for prospective purchasers of environmentally impacted property; and environmental law prohibits the dumping of toxic waste or other hazardous materials in our lakes, rivers, streams, and public land.

If you have been diagnosed with an Environmental Disease from exposure to a toxic substance, knowing your legal rights can provide both financial relief and peace of mind. Victims of Environmental Diseases, negligence, and personal injury have the right to seek compensation for their injuries, damages, loss of wages, and medical expenses.

Environmental Disease injuries can cause life-threatening physical injuries and trauma that can include financial damage to victims of negligent drivers. Injured victims must deal with large and unforeseeable medical expenses, loss of wages, pain, suffering and loss of quality of life. Family members also can suffer economic loss, mental anguish and loss of companionship in caring for an injured family member.

Many personal injuries occur due to negligence on the part of one of others involved. When an accident is caused by another party’s negligence you are entitled compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering as well as other damages.
