You Can Count On Our Attorneys To Fight For Maximum Compensation.

Macon Environmental Personal Injury Lawyers

Pollutants and contaminants are introduced to the environment every day, and many communities, families, and businesses become unknown 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 a personal injury lawyer who handles toxic environment claims.

At Adams Law Firm in Macon, our personal injury attorneys can help those who have become sick or injured by environmental toxins or contamination throughout Georgia. We can help hold negligent parties responsible for the injuries and illnesses they cause.

Holding Negligent Corporations Responsible For Environmental Damages

Corporations have a responsibility to produce safe products. They also have an obligation to follow environmental laws. If a company’s products or production process causes damage to the environment, and if that damage causes environmental contamination and exposure to toxins and pollutants, then they can be held liable for negligence. If that contamination and exposure caused injury, illness, property damage, and loss, then you may be able to recover damages.

Injuries And Illness From Chemical Substances

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 of these substances are harmless, extended exposure to some of these toxic chemicals can cause moderate to severe health problems, which may include:

  • Nose bleeds
  • Muscle twitches
  • Dementia
  • Cancer
  • 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 personal injury attorney if you feel that you, your family, or your community is potentially at risk.

Keep Your Family Safe From Potential Contaminants

It’s a good idea to test your water regularly. Many companies have ponds into which they drain the waste. There is a chance the toxins could contaminate water sources on your property.

You can also survey your soil. The plants in your home garden could very well be contaminated with ash and toxins. Air released from chemical or coal plants can be contaminated. Testing the soil can help protect you and your family from any potential toxins or contaminants quietly seeping into your garden bed.
