REPUTABLE ENVIRONMENTAL LAWYER

HAVE YOU BEEN EXPOSED TO A TOXIC SUBSTANCE?  CALL PRINCE GLOVER HAYES AT (205)345-1234 TODAY!  WE WELCOME THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASSIST YOU.

A toxic tort is a personal injury caused by exposure to toxic substance. Hazardous waste, lead based paint, pesticides, asbestos, electro-magnetic fields, toxic landfill waste, heavy metals, mercury and arsenic are all examples of toxic substances that can be harmful. The government has passed environmental laws to regulate the hazardous impact that industries create through use of and disposal of toxic substances. However, corporate greed, and an unwillingness to invest in systems that will reduce damage continue to create dire consequences to our environment.
