Landowner Rights

Corpus Christi Landowner Rights Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Clients in Nueces County & Beyond

When it comes to protecting your property from the negligent actions of others, namely oil spills and improper drilling practices by oil and gas companies, Texas landowners have certain rights with respect to that property. With the multitude of oilfields in Texas, extracting resources from the land while showing little concern for potential contamination and resulting damages is an all-too-common occurrence across the state.

If your property has suffered contamination at the hand of a negligent corporation due to inadequate regulatory measures, neglected safety procedures, or improper drilling practices, don’t hesitate to take action to protect your rights.

Contact Bandas Law Firm, P.C. online or by phone at (361) 238-2789 to speak to an experienced landowner rights lawyer in Corpus Christi.

Types of Environmental Contamination Common in Texas

Environmental contamination can be caused by a number of different sources and can result in all manner of illness, injury, property damage, and loss of financial means. In fact, contamination can significantly affect your property’s value and marketability now and in the future.

Unfortunately, this potentially life-altering environmental damage is often the result of simple negligence on the part of oil companies and other businesses who fail to take landowner rights into consideration.

Some of the most common sources of environmental contamination include:

  • Improper drilling practices
  • Improper chemical and solid waste disposal
  • Leaking pipelines
  • Improperly plugged and abandoned oil wells
  • Chemical spills
  • Improper operation of oil and gas surface facilities
  • Improper chemical and solid waste dumping
  • Oil spills
  • Leaking storage tanks

Besides the detrimental damage to private property that can result from environmental contamination, serious illness can also occur due to contaminated land, particularly groundwater. Contamination by oil or gas companies in Texas can result in your well water being unsuitable for use, and may even render your soil unfit for any kind of growth.

Protecting the Rights of Texas Landowners

Too often, the considerable funding and resources of big businesses, like oil companies, result in affected landowners shouldering the cost of property damage on their own. This should never be the case, especially if negligence is what caused the potentially irreversible damage to your land or water.

If your land, groundwater, or surface water has been contaminated by an oil spill, a leaking pipeline, or an abandoned oil well, contact Bandas Law Firm, P.C. for legal help. You may be entitled to financial compensation for any illnesses, lost income, damage to land, or other associated expenses. Our experienced Corpus Christi landowner attorneys can help you collect this compensation by filing an environmental contamination lawsuit against the negligent party.
