Environmental Law And Toxic Tort

Litigation related to environmental law, contamination and exposure to toxic substances has seen an explosive growth with no end in sight. The laws are complex with potential exposure to significant verdicts or even punitive damages. The attorneys of Thuillez Ford have successfully litigated these cases.

Petroleum spill remediation exposure can strike a business at any time for liabilities going back decades. In addition, some statutes governing petroleum remediation create both strict liability (liability without regard to fault) and joint and several liability (any party can be held liable for all damages regardless of percentage of fault). We have successfully defended oil spill and underground oil tank claims.

In addition, with our team of attorneys and our access to leading experts in the fields of medicine and toxic exposure, Thuillez Ford has successfully represented landlords defending lead paint claims in cases where significant neurological damage was claimed.

We have also successfully defended actions brought by landowners against loggers claiming the unlawful removal of trees by affirmatively proving the tree removal was an honest mistake thereby avoiding the treble damages frequently awarded for these claims.

Environmental law claims can strike home owners, commercial property owners, contractors, retailers, wholesalers, distributors and manufacturers. No business is immune from the reach of environmental law claims.

If you, your business, or your insured faces an incident, claim or lawsuit concerning an environmental claims, call our team of experienced attorneys to provide immediate legal assistance.
