Okeechobee Environmental Injury Attorney
Helping You Face the Aftereffects of Environmental Hazards
Individuals who are exposed to toxins, chemicals, and other hazardous materials often are at high risk of serious injury or illness, both physically and mentally. Unfortunately, these situations are all too common in Florida and across the nation. Some harmful substances that can potentially harm you and your family include but are not limited to:
- Lead paint
- Toxic waste
Exposure to these substances or other contaminated substances, particularly over a long period of time, can lead to serious diseases and medical conditions, such as cancer, respiratory problems, cognitive and neurological impairments, and birth defects for the children whose mothers experience exposure while pregnant. You can learn more about toxic substances and the laws that relate to them through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which operates various regulatory programs that govern and enforce state and federal laws related to air resources, water resources, and waste management. If you or a family member has been exposed to any toxic substances or contamination in Okeechobee and then developed a serious medical condition, contact an environmental injury lawyer at Steinger, Greene & Feiner for a professional assessment of your potential injury claim.

RELENTLESS LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR Okeechobee INJURY VICTIMS
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
Taking Legal Action for Environmental Injuries
The first step to making a legal claim for damages in an environmental injury case is to determine who is responsible for exposure to the toxins that led to your injuries. These parties may range from chemical manufacturers and construction companies who do not correctly seal their work sites to landlords who do not maintain their properties and companies who do not properly dispose of their chemical waste. In some cases, an employer may be partially responsible for an employee’s exposure to toxic chemicals, but the workers’ compensation program is designed to take care of your injuries and expenses in that type of situation. Once we have identified one or more responsible parties and fully documented all of your exposure-related expenses, we can move forward with filing a claim for damages with the responsible party’s insurance company.
