As the owner of a home, business, or other type of property, it is disheartening, angering, and frustrating to learn that your structure or surrounding land has been contaminated in some way. It's even worse to discover that another party, such as an oil and gas company or manufacturer, caused the contamination. After learning that your property is contaminated, a few questions can run through your head: How did this happen? Who did this? What do I do now?
These concerns are valid and overwhelming to deal with. That's why the Omar Ochoa Law Firm wants to help. We understand the complexities that go into property contamination litigation and want to help you hold the responsible party liable. With our knowledge of the field and a compassionate, experienced team behind you, we can help you recover for the damage to your property.
Types of Contaminations
Having to clean up land or other form of property following any sort of contamination can be problematic, very expensive, and extremely lengthy. Depending on the type of contamination, a cleanup can take months, or even longer in more serious cases. We can help with different types of contaminations, including:
- Oil and gas contaminations
- Contamination caused by fracking
- Contaminated groundwater
- Water pollution
- Pesticide and chemical spills
- Leaking storage tanks
- Asbestos, mold, radon, etc. in structures
- Water runoffs
Harming Your Health
Property or landowners dealing with any sort of contamination sometimes face the risk of health-related issues. For example, asbestos in homes or buildings that've been rented out without a tenant being made aware of its presence can pose a serious health risk. Months or even years of medical attention may be required, and if a person doesn't bring this very serious issue to light, he/she may be dealing with crippling financial issues in the future caused by paying for their treatments.
Our firm believes that those harmed due to the actions of another need to be held accountable as soon as possible. Companies have a responsibility to act in accordance with environmental standards. Contact the Omar Ochoa Law Firm today to get the process started.
