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 have exposure 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 because 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, including regulations and cleanup regarding hazardous or chemical materials and the consequences of individuals who violate environment statutes. Environmental law protects prospective purchasers of environmentally impacted property. 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.

Family members also can suffer economic damage, 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 the others involved. When another party’s negligence causes an accident, you have entitled compensation for medical expenses, pain, and suffering as well as other damages.
