What Can You Be Compensated For?

While each exposure and injury can involve different elements of damage, the following are generally present in an environmental contamination suit:

  • Medical monitoring expenses (the cost of monitoring you and your children with various early detection exams to prevent the development of conditions linked with the exposure for the next twenty or thirty years)
  • Fear of cancer
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life (damages you incurred as a result of the contamination that cut into your usual lifestyle, such as time required to obtain water if your well was closed or other inconvenience incurred as a result of the lack of the use of your property in its normal way)
  • Property damage (if your soil or ground water is contaminated it may have reduced the value of your property)
  • Personal injury (any of the injuries we discussed above and many more)
  • Punitive damages (damages that can be recovered if it can be demonstrated that the polluter showed a callous disregard or a reckless disregard for your health)
