Vapor Intrusion / Contaminated Indoor Air

Vapor intrusion refers to the process by which contamination in the soil or underground waterways beneath a property can seep upward through the earth and enter the inside of a home or business. Contaminants that seep upward usually do so in a gas phase (fumes) that rise toward the surface and can enter buildings through cracks or openings in foundations or slabs. These vapors then mix with the indoor air and may have an adverse impact on those people that occupy or visit the affected building. Vapor intrusion can result from the improper disposal or release of toxic chemicals, including such things as gasoline, oil, solvents and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Exposure to toxic substances in contaminated indoor air can cause illness or lead to an increased risk of illness, including some cancers.

Our Attorneys
What clients are saying about us
  • "I highly recommend this law firm because they were responsive and sensitive to my needs and won. I chose this firm after having talked to 6 other firms because within minutes of contacting them I was able to speak to Mr. Lieberman himself. Mr. Lieberman and the junior attorneys did not make me feel small just because I am an individual, a mother, and not a big corporation. My phone calls & emails were returned promptly. They listened to exactly what I wanted & delivered. The defendant was nasty and ignored us and at times I felt like this was going nowhere. The attorneys worked well to reach a settlement that exceeded my expectations. Mr. Lieberman is a very seasoned lawyer who has compassion for his clients. The best thing about Mr. Lieberman is that he trains his staff to have that same level of compassion and respect for clients. " - Z.B., Jersey City, NJ

  • "I would like to personally thank Lieberman & Blecher for their help and advice to my family in dealing with an environmental cleanup issue. When it is a big company and their legal team against a small property owner, I have learned that you need an expert to protect your property and your rights. The team at Lieberman & Blecher did this for my family in a professional and cost effective manner. I would certainly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal assistance" - C.K., Woodbridge, NJ
