Citizens can become at risk of harmful toxic exposure when companies and institutions disregard and violate state, local, or federal environmental laws resulting in chemical spills, landfill discharges, underground tank leakage, home heating oil spills, and industrial facility pollution.
Most frequent environmental violations that cause harm to human health include:
- Toxic waste and spills
- Oil and gas exploration and contamination
- Oil spills
- Pesticide use
- Water contamination
- Hydraulic fracturing
- Chemical explosions
- Hazardous waste and materials
Some of the most common toxins seen in environmental claims today are trichloroethylene [TCE], perchloroethylene [PCE], benzene, lead, arsenic, cadmium, vinyl chloride, and gasoline and its constituents, including the additive MTBE. Such materials can cause property damages or losses, as well as expose individuals to the toxins that lead to serious illnesses, including developmental disabilities and cancer, respiratory disorders, genetic mutations, birth defects, and fatality.
