Fighting for Justice: Air Contamination Litigation Lawyers
The right to breathe is considered a civil right and air quality is an essential factor in sustaining that right. Clean air is critical to human health, and emissions from vehicles, companies and even livestock can cause illness and injury. Additionally, environmental data and reports show a correlation between emissions and climate change, which can cause other health and safety risks for individuals.
Air Contamination Litigation
Many chemicals are incredibly toxic to our health and are far too common in our communities. Unfortunately, in many cases, people have spent years inhaling these chemicals and may not have realized it. These people could be employees who didn’t have the proper protective gear or people who lived in houses that were too close to a negligent chemical manufacturer.
Currently, our firm is lead counsel on a mass tort in Willowbrook, Illinois, where the company Sterigenics International was found to be releasing harmful levels of a toxic gas that may increase the public health’s risk of disease, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. We represent members of that community who have been sickened with certain cancers from the long-term toxic air pollution and families of some residents who have died.
While these are just a few instances, air contamination is a widespread problem that affects people all across the country.
