About Environmental Law

Both new and old problems arise frequently in the area of environmental law. This type of law was created in the 1960's in an attempt to reduce the impacts of human activity on the natural environment and involves subjects such as pollution control, resource conservation, land use and more. Because environmental law can vary from state to state, there can be great confusion about what laws and regulations apply under certain circumstances.

At DominaLaw Group, we have been taking on high-stakes environmental law cases since the 1970's and have become a forerunner in these complex lawsuits. We believe that no two cases should be handled in the same manner, and our team devotes time and energy to understand every client's situation and their needs. Our widespread experience in this area of law has given us insight into how environmental regulation has impacted commercial, industrial and governmental enterprises.

Types of Environmental Litigation

Here at DominaLaw Group, we are not afraid to take on the giant corporations and industrial powerhouses that are sometimes to blame for environmental issues. Rather, we have taken a strong stance in many of these cases and have earned a reputation for being leaders in this complex area of the law. To provide you with more information about the types of environmental lawsuits, our team of lawyers has provided the following material for you. Please do not hesitate to call our firm for additional clarification and to learn about the many ways that we can protect your rights.

Air Pollution
The Clean Air Act and other laws have been created to reduce the concentrations of air pollutants in our country, but many people are still suffering from the health consequences of toxic air emissions, urban air pollution and acid rain. From animal feeding operations to industrial organizations, air pollution lawsuits have been filed against a broad range of businesses in the United States.

Water Contamination
At least 1,000 casualties every year can be attributed to water contamination. When a local water source is contaminated by animal waste, pesticides, or chemical leaks, serious illnesses and diseases can occur. Some of the common symptoms of contamination include nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.

Fracking
Fracking is the process that involves extracting coal seam gas, petroleum or natural gas from the earth by injecting pressurized chemicals or fluids into the ground. By releasing such powerful and toxic chemicals into the ground, the ground water and air supply are also compromised. Fracking can lead to substantial health problems such as gastrointestinal effects, rashes, dizziness and more.

Oil Spills
One of the most catastrophic oil spills of all time, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, drew national attention to the devastation that can be caused when crude and toxic oil is spilled into the environment. Thousands of nuisance complaints and toxic torts have been filed because of the ramifications of the spill in regards to loss of profits, loss of sales, and other damages.

Toxic Chemical Leaks
When toxic chemicals are released into the environment, they can easily penetrate deep ground water sources and cause contamination of drinking water. Toxic chemical leaks also affect air quality and can lead serious illnesses and diseases over a period of time. Workers who have direct exposure or contact with toxic chemicals on a daily basis must be especially careful of chemical leaks.

Plant Explosions
Industrial plants are home to thousands of chemicals that are used to make our lives easier and more comfortable, but poor maintenance and ignorance of safety protocol can lead to plant explosions. Those who work in plants and refineries must always be aware of this possibility and the serious injuries and fatalities that can result from an explosion.
