What Damages Can I Recover in a Toxic Tort Claim?
A toxic tort is an injury or wrong that involves exposure to toxic chemicals
or other environmental pollutants. Our Atlanta personal injury attorneys
have experience representing aggrieved property owners who have suffered
both medical and financial consequences due to environmental contamination—such
as groundwater contamination from chemical spills or oil spills.
Damages that can be claimed in a toxic tort include:
Contamination to your property: If your property has been affected or your property value has been diminished
by groundwater contamination, water pollution, soil pollution, or any
other kind of environmental contamination, you may have a financial claim
against the parties responsible.
Damage to a business: If you own a business and your commercial property has been damaged or
your business has suffered due to environmental contamination, you may
have a viable claim.
Physical injuries/toxic exposure: If your health has been adversely affected due to exposure to toxic chemicals
in the workplace, in your home, in your drinking water, or anywhere else,
you may have a
personal injury claim to cover the damages you have suffered.
Our knowledge of the complexities of the federal and state laws and regulations
regarding toxic chemicals, groundwater contamination, and remediation
requirements, as well as our experience in litigating cases involving
expert scientific evidence, has earned us a national reputation for representing
victims of chemical exposures. Our law firm works with well-respected
environmental engineers, geologists, toxicologists, medical doctors and
experts in other fields to demonstrate how you and your community are
being affected by these toxins. We prove the financial damages and pursue
maximum compensation on your behalf, holding those responsible accountable
before the law.
