Pollution in Alabama does not just create eyesores, it causes huge amounts of damage to the citizens of our state. Air, water, and ground contamination can damage our health, our property, and our communities. In some cases Alabama pollution can cause debilitating and chronic illnesses or can even lead to death. And when those problems are caused by someone else’s pollution, that could mean they have to pay for the damage.
Taking On Big Industry
Birmingham’s past is closely tied to heavy industries. Many of those facilities spent years dumping chemicals and pollutants into our communities. The cleanup has taken decades and there is still work to be done. But pollution is also not just a thing of the past. Reports of pollution, both new cases, and cases discovered decades after being hidden, continue to make headlines and cause problems in Birmingham and across Alabama. At Gathings Law, we fight to make sure contaminants are cleaned from our communities, workplaces, and homes and that our clients are made whole. But we don’t just stop there. We fight to make sure that companies are forced to put measures in place to make sure that spills, contaminations, and discharges won’t happen again.
