Environmental Law

Texas Environmental Pollution Injury Attorneys

At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz, representing clients who have been injured due to violations of environmental laws is serious business. The state and federal governments have enacted many laws to protect individuals and the environment from the devastating effects of pollution, including the Clean Water and Clean Air acts. Enforcement is often lax, however, and damage often occurs before agencies charged with enforcement discover violations.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to environmental pollution or other environmental law violations, call 713-587-9668 (toll free 800-580-9121) or contact our office online to talk to an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer.

Experienced Lawyers Handling Health Injuries Due to Environmental Law Violations

Violations include:

  • Illegally dumping toxic byproducts into waterways
  • Emitting toxic waste from smokestacks
  • Improperly disposing of livestock waste and the byproducts of slaughter

Our Texas environmental law attorneys have extensive experience tracing the causes of illnesses that result from environmental pollution.
