Soil Contamination

Soil contamination is a severe hazard that, unfortunately, many Americans find themselves facing today. When companies discard their waste into the ground, they take little into consideration over how their waste can drastically harm the communities surrounding them over time. Oils, chemicals, radioactive materials, and heavy metals are only some kinds of ground contaminants that can lead to severe and even life-threatening injuries or illnesses to unsuspecting victims. Our law firm knows the struggles you and your loved ones face when dealing with soil contamination. If you believe you or a loved one has been exposed to harmful soil contaminants, contact us today.

FAQ

Soil Contamination FAQs

  • How Can Soil Contamination Happen?

    There are a few ways soil contamination can occur; the first way is from contaminants that have been discarded directly onto the ground. Soil contamination could be possible from practices years ago by major companies who would dump their waste or chemicals in cost-effective yet illegal ways. These companies would often discard their waste into a ditch, or bury their contaminants in barrels. Sometime later, if the company has sold the property they used as a dumping ground to real estate, those new residents are left to deal with the harmful effects of those contaminants. In some cases, harmful contaminants found in soil are due to water contamination. Streams, rivers, lakes, or other neighboring bodies of water that have been used as dumping grounds for companies or are exposed to contaminants from excessive pesticide or fertilizer use that have been left unchecked, can serve as a danger to those around them. A flood during a storm or unkept land will cause the contaminated water to escape its natural boundaries and overflow into the surrounding properties, leaving unsuspecting victims to suffer the consequences.

  • Can Soil Contamination Harm Me?

    It is known that coming into contact with contaminated soil can cause severe illness or injuries. Victims often absorb the contaminants through their skin after coming into contact with the affected ground. Children, when playing in the yard, gardeners tending to their plants, or even those walking barefoot across their lawn could unknowingly be exposed to these harmful contaminants. Victims may also come to find that by simply disturbing the grounds, the affected soil may release these harmful contaminants into the air for those to breathe in. It is also possible to be exposed to the contaminants through foods that are grown in contaminated soil. As the food grows, it can also absorb contaminants, and if these contaminated foods are ingested, a person could be injured.

    The most common side effects from exposure to contaminated soil include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Leukemia
    • Nausea
    • Skin irritation or rashes
    • Kidney or liver damage
    • Heavy metal poisoning
    • Nervous system damage
    • Neuromuscular blockage
    • Headaches and fatigue

    If you are displaying signs or symptoms mentioned in the list above after coming into contact with contaminated soil, please do not hesitate to reach out to our soil contamination attorneys today.

Jerri
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.

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.

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.

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!
