Toxic Contamination

Sources of pollution grow as new advances in science and technology emerge and become wide spread. Toxic contamination of ground water, soil and air affects the health of people and the safety and value of property. Individuals, especially those that rely on groundwater for drinking water, encounter potential illness or even death, while property owners face significant financial costs to clean up polluted sites.

Many different state and federal environmental laws provide protection from, and compensation for, toxic contamination whether it is coming from next door, or miles away. 

Proving pollution is affecting your health is an uphill battle against well-staffed, experienced corporations that profit from polluting communities. Cunningham Bounds has the knowledge and resources to take on the largest and most well-funded corporations in the world.
