Pollutants and contaminants are introduced to the environment every day, and many communities, families, and businesses become unknowing victims of environmental contamination. Though the companies responsible for this contamination only compensate a small number of the individuals affected, there are several different claims that can be brought by an environmental lawyer.
Whether the contamination has affected your environment or the individuals in your community, it is important to seek legal advice from a firm you trust. Adams Law Firm handles cases in personal injury, property damage, and financial loss resulting from environmental contamination, and exposure to toxins and pollutants.
Chemical substances enter our bodies every day, whether it's through the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the things we touch. Though many are harmless, extended exposure to some of these toxic chemicals can cause moderate to severe health problems, which may include:
- Nose Bleeds
- Muscle Twitches
- Respiratory/Breathing Problems
- Organ Dysfunction
There are ways to minimize risk and help ensure your health and safety; if you're experiencing any of the symptoms above, schedule an appointment with your physician. Consider seeking legal counsel from an environmental attorney if you feel you, your family, or your community is potentially at risk. Read our other suggestions below to help keep you and your family safe from potential contaminants.
Have your water tested. Many companies have ponds into which they drain the waste; there is a chance the toxins could contaminate water sources on your property.
Survey your soil. The plants in your home garden could very well be contaminated with ash and toxins from the air released from chemical or coal plants; testing the soil can help protect you and your family from any potential toxins or contaminants quietly seeping into your garden bed.
