Enviromental Law & Toxic Torts

You may have seen the movie "Erin Brockovich," about a brazen researcher that uncovered that a large utility had been dumping toxins that ended up in the water supply, killing and injuring residents of Hinckley, California. This is but one example. Although progress is being made in protecting and caring for the environment, there are those who turn a blind eye to our environment due to negligence, greed or indifference.

There are many federal laws, such as the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act and Resource Recovery Act, for example, which regulate the disposal of potentially hazardous wastes. Similarly, many states have enacted laws to protect the environment. Yet, enforcement is difficult and compliance is inconsistent. If you are a loved one feel you have been involved in an environmental law incident, it is important you contact an attorney to discuss your legal options. We encourage you to use our search by state lawyer referral and attorney referral map to find the American Justice Network attorney that is nearest you.

Whether it is an oil spill into a local water supply, noxious exhaust from a manufacturing plant, asbestos contamination, hazardous chemicals at work, or another exposure to dangerous environmental hazards. Our legal professionals can be reached toll free 24 hours a day at 888-88-JUSTICE.

Environmental concerns may show up immediately or after months or even years of exposure, making it difficult to determine the underlying cause without extensive evaluation by trained experts.
