An inadvertent fuel leak at a filling station, an unexpected work-site accident, or leakage during a dry cleaner’s disposal efforts: Any of these incidents, along with countless others, may give rise to an environmental tort claim against a business owner, operator, landowner, and others. Many of these claims may be governed by an entirely separate body of law from other tort actions.
Additional legal nuances may come into play if the environmental tort occurs on coastal lands or waters. It is important that your attorneys understand the ins and outs of the specialized statutes and regulations that may apply in such actions.
