Environmental & Toxic Torts

Environmental & Toxic Tort Lawyers in Atlanta

Put 60+ Years of Experience on Your Side

Have you or a loved one been harmed due to exposure to hazardous materials or pollution? If so, you may be eligible to receive compensation from those responsible. There are standards and laws that govern how toxic materials should be handled and disposed of and when toxins and chemicals are handled improperly, our air, soil, water, and homes can become contaminated.

Exposure to toxic substances can cause serious health complications and can cause cancer or death. At Goldstein Hayes & Lina, LLC, we believe that companies unlawfully polluting the environment and contaminating our communities with toxic chemicals should be held accountable for their actions.

Our attorneys are well-versed in the lengths corporate entities and municipalities will go to skirt responsibility when it comes to mishandling toxic materials. That is why our dedicated Atlanta toxic tort lawyers are prepared to bring knowledgeable, incisive, and hard-hitting counsel to these claims and ensure that the harm done to our clients is compellingly put forth both in and outside the courtroom.

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 environmental attorneys have experience representing aggrieved property owners who have suffered both medical and financial consequences due to environmental contamination—such as ground water 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 ground water 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.
