Environmental Law & Toxic Torts
New Orleans Attorney
The lawyers at Montgomery Barnett, L.L.P. are dedicated to serving their
clients and helping them achieve the results that they need. Environmental
law is a combination of statutes and regulations created to govern emissions,
pollution, and the general impact of various actions on the environment.
Actions affecting the environment that could warrant legal action include
but are not limited to:
- Pollution of the air and water
- Toxic waste
- Illegal dumping
- Heavy metal contamination
- Chemical and oil spills
- Solid waste
If you are a large corporation accused of negligence such as dumping or
improperly disposing of harmful or toxic waste, then you could face harsh
legal action in the form of toxic torts. It is essential that you retain
representation so that you are not taken advantage of in such a situation.
Most often, these cases involve claims of personal injury, such as a case
of an employee being instructed to tear down a building that is full of
asbestos or an individual suffering severe side effects due to pollution
in the local groundwater supply.
If one of your employees or someone in your community is accusing you of
negligent acts and is threatening to file a lawsuit, then you need representation
on your side that can help you defend the integrity of your company and
your name. Montgomery Barnett can provide the necessary services and resources
to investigate accusations against you and analyze the possible causes
of the environmental impact issue. The firm's team can evaluate your
