Environmental Damage and Toxic Torts
The firm recognizes that, particularly in Texas, government regulators provide limited regulatory oversight over the chemical and energy industries. We respect that decision and policy. However, those policies still require companies to follow the laws, be honest with the regulators, and to not cause harm to their neighbors. When companies violate their obligations, people can get hurt. Neighboring property values can go down. And, the good companies, who follow the law and do the right thing, get dragged down as well. When companies refuse to follow the law and cause their neighbors to be damaged, our firm has repeatedly stepped in to make it right.
We handle property value loss due to either air or ground pollution.
We handle personal injury cases due to toxic exposure.
We do it all over the country, and are recognized as one of the best at it.
