Companies that emit pollution in the air, water or soil can cause serious injury and disease. Not only can workers be exposed to emissions at work, but neighbors can as well. The most vulnerable, pregnant women, children and the elderly have been sacrificed in the name of profit and production. The right to be free from toxic waste is one that should be guarded and a handful of lawyers have fought for these rights. The federal government is sadly too under funded and the task falls, many times, on the families exposed to fight back. This requires a lawyer willing to undertake such a monumental task on a contingent fee basis. Some companies add to their profits by using private and public land and waters rather than take responsibility for the costs of disposing of the wastes from their production. Landowners discover that under their land or in their streams lies storage for the worst pollutants the companies chose to let run free. Many of us become unwitting garbage collectors of wastes that will remain on or under our land for centuries. The law has remedies for these transgressions both for disease caused and desecration of the private and public lands we own.
