There are very few law firms throughout the country that represent plaintiffs in class action "toxic tort" cases; we are proud to be one of this select group of attorneys. We have many years of experience representing victims of groundwater contamination, air contamination and vapor intrusion. We also handle individual toxic tort cases for people who have contracted cancer due to environmental exposure and property damage cases for neighborhoods impacted by toxic air, water or ground contamination. We have recovered more than $450 million for our environmental clients because our attorneys have the experience, resources and deep knowledge of the complex scientific issues at the heart of these environmental contamination cases.
Environmental contamination is a growing problem throughout the nation. Over the last decade, through our class action cases, we have forced polluters to:
- Clean up toxic contamination in the environment
- Provide safe drinking water to over 16,000 people
- Filter out the air inside homes after dangerous chemical vapors caused contamination
- Excavate contaminated soil in yards and neighborhoods
In addition to our environmental law work, we fight on behalf of the victims of personal injury and their families. Over the years, we have secured favorable settlements and verdicts for people injured in truck crashes, motorcycle accidents, all kinds of car crashes, and pedestrian accidents. We have successfully represented the victims of dog bites, slip and falls accidents, and medical negligence. If you or a loved one was hurt or killed due to a car accident, medical malpractice, defective product or nursing home neglect, our lawyers can provide you with effective, aggressive representation. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will guide you through the complex legal system and fight to get you the maximum compensation, leaving you free to focus on your recovery.
We also put our litigation skills to use on behalf of clients who are suffering financially due to business deals gone bad. Whether it is breach of contract, failing to receive what you are owed or any other type of business dispute, our experienced trial lawyers can fight for you.
