Air Pollution and Environmental Hazard Class Actions

When businesses release toxic chemicals or other pollutants, they can have a profoundly negative effect on the surrounding community, its environment, and its economy. These environmental hazards can have significant long-term effects on air, soil, and water quality. When pollution causes property damage, physical injuries, or other harm, an environmental class action lawsuit may be the best way to seek justice for the people, families, and businesses who have been harmed.

Environmental class action attorney David Dubin has focused his entire legal career on environmental class action work. He regularly handles cases involving damage caused by air pollution or other environmental hazards, and he fights to seek justice for people whose lives have been changed by damage to the environment.

Holding Bad Actors Responsible for the Damage They Cause

Even though the state and federal government has passed laws intended to protect the environment and reduce pollution, businesses continue to generate massive amounts of pollutants that poison the air, soil, and water. These hazards jeopardize people’s lives and livelihoods, and the consequences of this misconduct can include significant property damage and plummeting home values and can have adverse health consequences.

Dubin Law is dedicated to holding these bad actors accountable for the injuries and damage they cause, and to seeking compensation for innocent victims.

Companies See Fines for Pollution as a Cost of Doing Business

Despite state and federal regulations to the contrary, some companies view the fines associated with releasing hazardous and toxic chemicals into the environment as just a cost of doing business. In some cases, it is cheaper to pay the fines associated with discharging hazardous chemicals in an unsafe manner. But these decisions contaminate the environment and put profits ahead of people.

These business practices can result in the contamination of an entire town’s water supply, affect the local economy, and release chemicals that cause significant adverse health effects.

If you believe that you or your family have been negatively affected by environmental pollutants, you may be able to join an environmental class-action lawsuit. Dubin Law can evaluate your case, explain your rights, and help you seek justice.
