Environmental and Water Contamination Law

Environmental and Water Contamination Law

Clean air and water matter to everyone. Everybody should have access to a clean, drinkable water supply and breathable air. Unfortunately, clean water and air is not always available to everyone. Many times, an unclean environment including contaminated air and water are attributable to unwise business practices created by irresponsible corporate practices.  Ultimately, everyone including the taxpayers end up shouldering this burden created by unscrupulous business practices. The only way to hold the responsible parties accountable, protect our environment, and protect our public and private entities is by holding the wrongdoers accountable in our justice system. If you are a public or private entity or community has a problem with your water supply or other environmental contamination issues, our firm has the resources, the experience, and the staying power to implement a policy of remediation and accountability in courts throughout the US. If you would like to speak with our Environmental Law and water contamination team please call (214) 461-6170 or email us at help@fnlawfirm.com.

PFOA and PFOS Contamination

One example of water supply contamination involves the dangerous chemicals known as PFOS and PFOA. These chemicals are part of a class of chemicals known as perfluoroalkyls, which were manufactured and used for decades in firefighting foams widely used in industrial and commercial buildings. For years they were considered to be non-toxic, however, years later these chemicals have seeped into the groundwater and contaminated city water supplies as well as residential wells and harmed people in multiple locations. In 2005, the EPA’s scientific advisory board declared PFOA a “likely human carcinogen.” These chemicals ultimately can lead to cancer, liver damage, immune system deficiencies, and other serious injuries if even a small amount is ingested. By filing a lawsuit against the manufacturers of these dangerous products, our firm can help to hold them accountable and recover compensation for injuries and suffering for those cities and individuals that are affected.
