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.

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.
