Environmental Litigation and Toxic Torts
Belt & Bruner represents clients who have been harmed by exposure to environmental contamination or toxic chemicals. Personal or property exposure is recent in some cases; in others, contamination occurs over many years. Our firm has broad experience in helping people obtain compensation for personal injuries and property damage caused by toxic substances.
There are multiple sources of environmental contamination, including chemical plants, gas stations, waste storage facilities and landfills. It is critical that product manufacturers and employers properly label and instruct workers and those exposed to chemicals on proper handling and risk of injury. The attorneys of the Belt & Bruner represent people injured by substances such as:
- Toxic mold
- Chemical spills
- Groundwater contamination
- Underground storage tanks
- Improperly maintained oil and gas wells
- Welding fumes
When people are exposed to dangerous or toxic substances that are released into the air or water, they can suffer serious health problems, such as cancer and respiratory illnesses. If you worked at a job or lived near a site where toxic chemicals were used, you may have been subjected to dangerous levels of chemical exposure. Many industrial worksites contain a variety of hazardous materials that workers and the general public need to be protected from.
Corporations are responsible for providing workers with adequate protective equipment and safety training. If a company negligently fails to provide effective safety measures for its own workers or the general public, it can be held liable for damages that result.
