Environmental Damage

West Virginia Environmental Damage Attorneys

The environmental attorneys at Simmerman Law have substantial experience obtaining compensation from corporations when they contaminate West Virginia’s land, water and air. We pride ourselves on protecting the rights of West Virginia property owners and we are committed to holding polluters responsible to clean up toxic spills and provide redress for other environmental damage.

Property isn’t the only thing that is affected by industrial pollution and waste. The release of toxins into the environment can also cause health problems, illnesses and injuries to those who come into contact with these substances and pollutants through tainted drinking water, poisonous vapors and other means. When companies negligently release toxic substances into the environment, those individuals who are damaged may have the right to pursue environmental or other tort claims to recover for their physical injuries as well as the cleanup costs to their property.

Our West Virginia environmental pollution lawyers handle claims and disputes over cleanup and injuries involving many situations including, but not limited to:

  • Oil and gas spills and pipeline leaks/breaks  
  • Sewage releases
  • Surface and groundwater pollution
  • Mining and industrial waste
  • Toxic chemical spills and other industrial pollution and contamination 
  • Contaminated soil and property 

Due to the number of expert witnesses and testing that is often required to prove the polluter’s liability, cases involving environmental damage tend to be very expensive. Our firm has the resources, experience and fortitude to go the distance and take these complex cases to trial against large corporations.

From groundwater pollution to oil, natural gas and produced water spills, our firm is prepared to take on your environmental cleanup case and compel responsible parties to pay for the cleanup and personal injuries they cause. If you have been personally injured by toxic substances or your property has been exposed to industrial contamination or an oil and gas spill contact our West Virginia environmental attorneys to discuss your rights under West Virginia law.
