Toxic Chemical Leak / Spill
Maryland Personal Injury Attorney Fights to Protect the Community
Hazardous materials and chemicals are an inextricable part of American industry. Used in numerous products and in a variety of commercial services and sectors, these chemicals are heavily regulated to ensure that the general public is kept safe from the damages they can potentially cause. When accidently released in the form of leaks, spills or ruptures, these chemicals can cause extensive and widespread harm.
Toxic chemicals have an overwhelming ability to disperse and spread. Known to seep into surface water, contaminate groundwater and cause significant air pollution, these substances can also cause severe damages to local vegetation and wildlife in the area. For residents and local businesses in the region, the dangers of exposure can affect them substantially during the course of their daily life, as substances released by chemical leaks are routinely found in drinking water, foods and other essentials.
How an Environmental Litigation Lawyer Can Help
The United Stated Department of Commerce reports that there are thousands of chemical and oil spills each year, both on and offshore. As Maryland maintains active ports that transport a great deal of raw and hazardous materials, the threats posed by spills and coastal waters can significantly impact both the health of local residents and their economic well-being. Regardless of the precise or tangible impact chemical leaks and spills may have on a community, they must never be tolerated.
