Safeguarding our environment
The discharge of toxic chemicals, dangerous pesticides, and hazardous materials into the environment can have a devastating effect on the health, livelihood, and property values of those in the vicinity. In the case of large scale oil spills, tens of thousands of persons living hundreds of miles away can be affected.
Environmental pollution may occur over an extended period — such as the slow leakage of industrial pollutants into groundwater supplies used by communities for drinking water — or swiftly and catastrophically from oil spills, transportation carrier accidents, and disasters at coal plants, refineries, and other industrial facilities.
Obtaining compensation for environmental damage
