ENVIRONMENTAL TOXIC TORT AND GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATION

The law firm of German Rubenstein LLP is dedicated to representing individuals, water providers and governmental entities in New York, New Jersey and throughout the United States, who have suffered physical injury, illness, or property damage as a result of environmental contaminants in ground water, drinking water, soil, and air.  We seek financial compensation for the victims of cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, birth defects, and other illness caused by environmental exposure.  We also seek medical monitoring for those individuals who have been exposed to elevated levels of environmental contaminants and are consequently at an increased risk of serious latent illness, such as cancer.   We seek removal and abatement as well as compensation for landowners whose property has been devalued due to the presence of contamination on or near their property. 

The lawyers at German Rubenstein LLP handle a broad spectrum of environmental cases involving injury caused by exposure to:

  • Volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) in drinking water and soil gas vapors
  • Gasoline contamination containing benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene and MTBE
    Industrial solvents and cleaners such as vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene (PERC) / perchloroethylene (PCE) and carbon tetrachloride
  • Agricultural and farming chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, atrazine and simazine   
    Metals such as lead, arsenic and hexavalent chromium   
    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s)  
  • Hog and chicken farm wastes such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, nitrates,
