Private Property Contamination Litigation

For property owners who are seeking to maintain or develop the usefulness and value of their land, contamination of that land by a hazardous substance can drastically diminish the market value of that property.

At Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC, our attorneys can help a property owner regain value that was lost through contamination by a hazardous substance. Additionally, our lawyers can help parties effectively evaluate and defend private property contamination litigation.

Determination of Damages After Contamination

In many land contamination cases, the determination of the responsible party is not the most difficult task. In fact, often the contaminating party is already known. What requires skill and experience is determining the cost of the damage that was done.

Our firm's attorneys have decades of experience in determining the costs of the environmental impacts from various types of land contamination. We frequently look at market damages, cleanup costs and the impact on the use of the property.
