Property Contamination

Property Contamination Claims in Texas

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Protect Property Owners Throughout Dallas

As a property owner, you are most likely exceptionally proud of your own portion of land. Your land is your greatest asset. Your land is your greatest investment. You have every right to protect your land and ensure it is free from any potential dangers or hazards.

Texas is known across the nation - and throughout the world - for being an incredibly mineral-rich state. From natural gas to oil and petroleum, oil refiners and production companies throughout the U.S. come to Texas in an effort to "strike" on oil-rich land. Unfortunately, oil drilling practices and fracking has led to countless cases of property contamination for many property owners in Dallas.

If your property has been contaminated due to an oil company's disregard for the well-being of your property, you must speak with our skilled Dallas personal injury attorneys. We have had extensive legal experience in handling complex, high-profile, and high-stakes litigation matters in the past. We can bring the same level of perseverance, tenacity, and relentlessness to help you secure the financial compensation you need to remedy your current situation.

Your land is your legacy and heritage. Don't let it suffer due to someone else's negligence. Contact our property contamination lawyers at The Daspit Law Firm to assert your rights!

We Do the Legal Footwork so You Can Enjoy a Toxin-Free Landscape

Before an oil and gas company can come to your property and extract natural resources, it must first obtain an oil and gas lease. Once you sign over your mineral rights to the company, it can then drill or search for natural resources on your land. Though you may expect the company to respect the integrity of your property, this is not always the case.

Controversial practices, such as fracking (fracturing the land by using highly pressurized pumps) could effectively disfigure your land. Furthermore, drilling companies could fail to operate in a way that does not put you or the greater public in danger. Oftentimes, drilling can take a significant toll on the environment and could even lead to permanently contaminated water supplies.

Property contamination claims can involve many issues, including:

  • Permanent land scarring
  • Ravaged land and sterile soil
  • Poisoned, damaged, or contaminated vegetation
  • Poisoned, damaged, or contaminated public water supply
  • Uncovered ditches, trenches, or pits due to inadequate pipeline installation
  • Broken pipelines seeping oil or gas onto the property
  • Chemical and toxic exposure, leading to serious illness or disease

Not only is property contamination incredibly dangerous to you and your health, but it could cause property values to plummet as a result of the contamination. If your property has been contaminated by an oil and gas company, you have the right to take legal action by way of a property contamination claim.

We Seek Justice After Immeasurable Damage Has Been Suffered

Though the oil and gas industry is highly successful and lucrative, dangerous drilling practices could have an immeasurable impact on the environment, and more specifically, your property. By taking action with a skilled and aggressive Dallas property contamination lawyer, however, you can demand the financial compensation you need to help restore your property, or if necessary, secure the legal means to remove the oil drillers from your property.

Attorney John Daspit has had experience as a former defense lawyer and draws on many legal accomplishments, including:

  • Successfully representing a pipeline company due to defective piping materials used in the construction of a pipeline extending nearly 500 miles long. The claim was worth more than $50 million and Attorney Daspit led his clients to a successful outcome out of court.
  • Logging nearly 8,000 hours while working on claims arising from the BP Texas City Refinery Explosion in 2005.

Whether you are looking to take action in a class action lawsuit or a toxic torts claim due to chemical exposure, our personal injury attorneys in Dallas are here to help you every step of the way.
