Environmental Contamination

Environmental Contamination

Corpus Christi Landowner Rights Lawyers, Serving Nueces County

Environmental contamination, including soil and water pollution, can have both short- and long-term consequences that can severely affect Texas landowners and their properties. For example, ground contamination can prevent vegetation from growing properly in your soil, and groundwater contamination or depletion can render your well water unfit for human use. Even more severe consequences can result from environmental contamination, including serious injury or illness.

If your Texas property has been contaminated by negligent oil or gas activity or another type of resource exploration, contact our Corpus Christi environmental contamination attorneys to fight for your landowner rights. Environmental contamination can be detrimental to both your land and your health. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can seek recovery for any expenses associated with detrimental environmental contamination.

Call Bandas Law Firm, P.C. at (361) 238-2789 or contact us online today to learn more about how our legal team can assist you.

Sources of Environmental Contamination

Ground and groundwater contamination is not only a threat to the health of human beings and livestock, but they can also damage a property’s value and marketability.

Some of the most common sources of environmental contamination in Texas include:

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

Consequences of Environmental Contamination

When resource exploration—particularly oil and gas activity—in Texas goes wrong, or when big businesses fail to consider the long-term effects of improper drilling and dumping practices, the resulting consequences can cause irreversible damage to land and water. There is no excuse for this kind of activity not being handled properly. When this type of negligent behavior occurs, Texas landowners have certain rights with respect to the contaminated property.

If you or a loved one has suffered from an illness, or if your property has been adversely affected by contamination from a Texas oilfield or another source, contact our experienced environmental contamination attorneys today. You may be able to pursue compensation for injuries or illnesses, damage to land, lost income, and any other expenses resulting from the environmental problem.

At Bandas Law Firm, P.C., we understand that pursuing a contamination claim against a large, well-funded corporation can be cost-prohibitive to many landowners. Consequently, our Corpus Christi landowner rights attorneys will work with you on a contingency basis, which means you only pay legal fees if we obtain a verdict or settlement. We collect a percentage of what we recover for you.
