Groundwater Contamination

The last thing you want to worry about is whether or not the water you use every day is safe. In the United States, over 50% of the population depends on groundwater for drinking water. Yet a study conducted by the U.S Geological Survey found one of every five groundwater samples from aquifers used for drinking water contained a contaminant from geologic or man-made sources at levels that exceeded a potential human-health concern. 

At Morgan & Morgan, we believe that everyone is entitled to have clean and safe water. If you or someone you love has been exposed to contaminated groundwater, we may be able to help you hold guilty parties accountable and recover the compensation you need and deserve. You can fill out our free, no-obligation case evaluation form to get more information.

Groundwater Contamination Lawyer FAQs

  • What Causes Groundwater Contamination?

    Groundwater contamination occurs when contaminants seep into a water supply, making it dangerous for humans, animals, and other wildlife. Contamination of groundwater systems can come from numerous sources, be it natural or human-induced. Many urban activities, agriculture, industrial discharges, and waste disposal can all affect the water quality in your area. Other causes that may lead to groundwater contamination may include toxic chemical spills, leaking fuel tanks, fertilizers, or pesticides applied to lawns and crops. As stated by the CDC, the most common sources of contaminants found in groundwater are:

    • Landfills
    • Sewer overflows
    • Pesticides or fertilizers
    • Livestock, or concentrated animal feeding operations
    • Storage tanks containing gasoline, oil, chemicals, or other liquids
    • Radon, uranium, arsenic, and other naturally occurring chemicals and minerals
    • Malfunctioning wastewater treatment systems, such as local septic systems

    Knowing and understanding the source of contamination of the groundwater in your area may be the difference between life or death. If you have suspicion to believe the groundwater in your area has been contaminated due to natural or man-made disasters, you may be entitled to legal compensation. 

  • Have I Been Affected by Groundwater Contamination?

    Ingesting or even exposure to contaminated groundwater can have serious health effects. In some cases, it may take years for you and your loved ones to notice the personal health effects of contaminated groundwater in your home. Diseases such as dysentery or hepatitis may be caused due to a broken or poorly maintained septic tank. Poisoning may occur from toxins that have seeped into the water supplies. Other long-term effects such as developing certain forms of cancer can also result from exposure to polluted water. Along with many residents in your neighborhood, the local wildlife may also experience adverse side effects of contaminated groundwater. If you believe you or a loved one have been affected by groundwater contamination, don’t wait; seek immediate medical attention, then contact Morgan & Morgan for legal help.

    Hiring an attorney significantly raises your chances of receiving compensation for your injuries. When you hire a Morgan & Morgan attorney, they’ll immediately begin working on your case.

    • Lost wages
