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.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.
Georgia J.
General Injury
It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.
Antonia C.
Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.
Todd E.
Homeowners Insurance
I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
