Cases involving personal injury due to exposure to environmental contaminants are much more scientifically sophisticated than ordinary personal injury cases. Injuries resulting from an exposure to an environmental pollutant require an attorney well-versed in the technical aspects of the exposure source at issue, with a keen scientific mind and experience in handling the various nuances presented by these type cases. These cases also require an attorney with experience defending against federal environmental statutes, including the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which are occasionally included in a personal injury case involving an exposure to an environmental pollutant.
