Our South Carolina Injury Attorneys Make Companies Pay
Threats to our water supply can harm people and families. Exposure to dangerous elements that have found their way onto land that we use and on which our children play also threatens people and families. The ways that these things can occur is when a factory or business allows pollutants into the environment in South Carolina. Our South Carolina injury lawyers are committed to protecting our environment and our clients from environmental toxins. Your life is our mission, and we will fight for justice on behalf of anyone who has suffered injury because of chemical pollutants.
Groups of people injured by environmental pollution may have significant legal claims. When a group of people has either an identifiable personal injury or property damage from toxic releases into the environment, then they may have a claim.
People ingest toxins through drinking water or exposure to land contaminated with pollutants all over the United States. Dangerous chemicals and toxins are sometimes hidden or buried for many years after a plant has closed, leaving people with little opportunity for legal action. The attorneys at McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC know how to attempt to provide legal recourse for those people harmed by water contamination or land pollution. Your life is our mission.
Factories and businesses pollute in many ways. The most common cause of environmental pollution is petroleum. This usually takes the form of gasoline leaking from an underground storage tank. However, pollution can take many different forms. For example, toxic exposure to herbicides and pesticides create health effects related to the following areas: reproductive, gynecological, immunological, liver, gall bladder, dermatological, neurological, and cancer (such as soft tissue sarcomas, lymphomas and leukemia). Manufacturers of these chemicals have often defended cases involving personal injuries or wrongful death. Such manufacturers as Dow, Hercules, Monsanto, Diamond Shamrock, Georgia Pacific, ITT, Champion, Vertac and RhonePoulanc have faced the effects of their products through legal claims.
