For many business owners and corporations, environmental laws and regulations
can feel like completely foreign fields that have nothing to do with their
businesses. It can come as quite a shock when they find out that they
do, in fact, need to be concerned with environmental law, especially if
they have potentially violated some! Ignorance is no excuse, though. If
your well-being has been put in jeopardy due to a company that is ignoring
environmental laws, you need to work with an environmental lawyer right
away to start seeking justice.
What Can an Environmental Lawyer Do for Me?
Environmental law is always in a constant state of change due to new technologies,
limited resources, and fluctuating regulations. As if that was not enough,
it also deals with a mix of federal, state,
and local laws, so it is not enough to understand just one set of rules. An
environmental attorney can take all of that complex litigation and handle
it for you.
Matters a negligent business could be causing that should be brought to
the attention of an environmental lawyer include:
- Unauthorized construction on a plot of land
- Improperly disposing toxic or hazardous waste
- Consuming excessive quantities of water
- Damaging or altering soil quality
- Causing some form of pollution, even minor contaminants
In addition to helping you determine if your rights have been violated
by a corporation’s actions, an environmental attorney can also provide
legal advocacy in court. When so much is on the line, you cannot afford
to start litigation unprepared.
