Modern construction of landfills requires that the waste be contained by liners that prevent dangerous chemicals from leaking into the soil and groundwater. This was not always the case, however, and the problems that this hazardous waste can cause — cancer-causing groundwater and soil contamination and vapor intrusion — can take decades to reveal themselves.
At The Collins Law Firm in Naperville, Illinois, our attorneys fight on behalf of families throughout the country who are suffering due to landfill contamination. Contact us and arrange a free initial consultation today.
Let Our Lawyers Fight For You When Landfill Contamination Endangers Your Life
If you live by an old landfill, there is a good chance it does not contain proper environmental safeguards. The effects of chemical dumping that occurred years ago could just be starting to become apparent.
When you learn the news that a nearby landfill has been making you and your family sick and drastically devaluing your home, it is important to realize that you have options. Where state and federal governments fail to enforce environmental laws, we use those laws to help you pursue compensation and cleanup your neighborhood.
With us in your corner, you will not have to face this fight alone. Our attorneys have experience with bringing multiple families together to craft strong class action lawsuits that hold corporations accountable for their reckless actions. That experience is why clients put their trust in us and that is why we have been able to recover more than $100 million on their behalf.
