Connecticut Environmental Injury Legal Advocacy

Eagan & Donohue’s environmental injury legal team has handled numerous wrongful death matters and injury claims involving environmental hazards and the exposure to hazardous materials.

The outdoors is often our safe haven and where we send our children to play when they have been cooped up inside for too long.  We do not think that the environment contains contaminants that can in fact harm our children instead of better them, but unfortunately a rash of contaminants found in the air, water, and plants around us has led to serious injuries throughout the country.

Environmental Injuries

The words “environmental injuries” bring to mind a wide range of potential injuries resulting from not the environment itself, but from the actions of one person or company on the environment, leading to extensive health injuries.  These injuries can be the result of toxic exposure from the following:

  • Asbestos
  • Oil spill
  • Chemical spills
  • Benzene
  • Fracking
  • Lead
  • Plant explosions

Many of these injuries are the result of actions from a large chemical company or oil and gas company.  You should not be afraid to bring a claim against a large company to receive compensation for your injuries.

It seems the thing of movies: acquiring a lethal illness from the drinking water in your town.  However, unfortunately, this scenario has become more prominent throughout the United States, despite efforts to cover up the contamination or downplay all effects.  Oil and gas companies are particularly notorious for releasing poisonous gases into the atmosphere, or infiltrating ground water with chemicals that can lead to illnesses as severe as cancer. Your home is where you raise your family and trust that the surrounding environment will be clean enough so that a child can play in the front yard.  It is now difficult to tell what is safe and what is dangerous in certain towns, and these large companies should be held accountable for their actions.  Bringing a claim against a company that causes environmental injuries is the first step toward getting the company to change their practices.
