An environmental tort arises when a person is injured through exposure to a toxin or contaminant in his or her environment.

Lawyers at the Law Offices of Stephan C. Volker represent clients that have been injured through such exposure and seek compensation for their injuries. For example, the Firm has successfully represented individuals harmed by toxic wastes that had leaked from containers and equipment stored in their neighborhood.
