Environmental Contamination Legal Action

The Environmental team at Motley Rice understands how damaging environmental contamination can be to people's health and a community's economic welfare and have experience working with complex environmental contamination legal issues.

Natural Resource Damages Lawsuits

Governmental entities sometimes find it necessary to file natural resource damages lawsuits to recover compensation in order to restore and conserve a state's natural resources following environmental contamination from oil or other hazardous toxins. Having a history of working with state and local governments on such issues as tobacco and asbestos, Motley Rice's environmental team continues to advocating for public health and safety and the preservation and conservation of our environment.

Lead Poisoning

In addition to posing serious health risks to adults, particularly pregnant women and industrial workers, lead poisoning is among the most prevalent health problems among America's youth. Although the U.S. banned the use of lead paint in 1978, numerous other sources of lead contamination continue to be significant sources of exposure, and the attorneys working with Motley Rice's Environmental practice team have established relationships with lead paint researchers and experts to thoroughly represent those who have suffered lead poisoning as a result of negligence and corporate wrongdoing.
