Property Damaged by Pollution
Our attorneys frequently represent clients who are concerned about the impact that toxic substances or environmental pollutants may have on their property. Residential and commercial landowners alike know that maintaining their properties can be costly and stressful in itself, and these problems can only grow when a landowner discovers that their property has been contaminated. Landowners are often worried about how to protect their families, residents, tenants and visitors, as well as their investment. Our attorneys consult regularly with clients about how to keep people safe from contamination and maintain their property values when contamination is discovered on their property.
Residential and commercial property owners are often surprised when they learn that their property has been impacted by a toxic substance, pollutant or chemical – especially when they are not located in industrial areas. However, then toxic substances and pollutants are released into the environment, they can travel great distances and impact unsuspecting, individuals, businesses and communities. Oftentimes, property owners are unaware that their property has been impacted by a toxic substance, pollutant or chemical until the impact has become significant, requiring costly investigations and remediation. This is where our attorneys do some of their best work. Our team of toxic tort litigators are skilled at pursuing responsible parties and forcing them to clean up their environmental contamination and to reimburse our clients for the damages that they have caused. We obtain significant results through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution (including mediation and arbitration), and by pursuing lawsuits through the state and federal courts for property damage. Our clients include both homeowners and business owners who are concerned about maintaining the value of their property and ensuring a clean environment for their families, visitors and employees. The attorneys at Lieberman & Blecher excel in helping our clients meet these goals by pursuing those responsible for environmental impacts and by making sure that our clients are fully compensated for the damages imposed upon them.
