LEGAL HELPLINE 0844 414 4176


Our specialist personal injury solicitors deal with environmental contamination law. We not only claim compensation for personal injury but our remit also includes taking legal action for environmental nuisance claims for communities. Our expertise extends to nuisance caused by landfill, sewage farms and pollutant factories and historical contamination of land resulting from industries of a bygone age. We take legal action against Government, local authorities, individuals and business corporations often on a multi-party action (class action) basis for serious environmental hazards including contaminated land, asbestos ingestion, air pollution, food contamination, inadequate waste management, exposure to radiation and dangerous magnetic fields. There are particular hazards that relate to development of brownfield sites for use as housing, release of industrial pollutants into water courses used for domestic drinking water supplies, food poisoning, fly tipping and dumping of commercial and domestic waste in unregulated conditions.

Contamination & Pollution Multi Part Action

Due to the multiple number of people that may be affected by an environmental disaster it may be possible to pursue a group legal action which means that all affected individuals join together whilst one member of the group pursues a typical claim, the outcome of which is binding on the defendant polluter for all members of the group with similar injuries caused as a result of the same incident. The benefit of this course of action is that it reduces overall legal costs, making the legal process more viable for a solicitor when carrying out a risk assessment for a no win no fee claim thereby increasing the chance of acceptance of the claim by the solicitor often resulting in ultimate victory in the court.

Solicitors Legal Advice

All of our solicitors are members of the Solicitors Regulation Authority panel of personal injury experts. All of our solicitors use the no win no fee scheme otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement. No legal charge is payable unless the legal case is won and the client obtains an award of compensation. In the event that the legal claim is lost there is no charge made to the client.
