Oil and Pipeline Pollution

Oil and Pipeline pollution is an ever increasing occurrence in East Texas. Hidden dangers lurk beneath the soils of East Texas because our lands are criss-crossed with millions of feet of oil and gas pipelines, as well as salt water pipelines, many of which have been in place since the 1930's.

Neglect and disrepair are causing more and more failures to occur resulting in severe injuries to people and animals through pollution to pastures, creeks and water sources.

If you’ve experienced harm or injury because of toxic materials such as oil and pipeline solutions or some other toxic substances, you may be entitled to receive compensation. Contact our toxic chemical exposure lawyers at the Patton, Nix, and Young Law Firm.

Other Substances That May Require Toxic Tort Litigation

It is unfortunately easier than you may realize to be exposed to hazardous substances because of the negligence of a business or entity.

Here are a few examples how a person may be exposed to toxic chemicals:

Pesticides - Pesticides can be found in the produce we eat and other substances. Exposure to pesticides can cause small side effects, such as stinging eyes, rashes, and blisters, or major side effects including blindness or, in rare circumstances, death.

Asbestos - An individual may be exposed to asbestos from products containing this substance, including popcorn ceiling, roof asphalt, cement, floor tiles, and more. Exposure to asbestos can cause asbestosis or cancer.

Lead - A child may get lead poisoning by eating paint chips from lead-based paint at home or at school. Lead poisoning can cause learning disabilities and other side effects.

Other common substances a person may be exposed to include:

  • Arsenic
  • Benzene
  • Beryllium
