Consult With Toxic Exposure Attorneys Regarding Carcinogens

Environmental protection is the responsibility of both businesses and citizens. When negligent actions harm the environment and people, we are ready to hold the powerful accountable.

Carcinogen Pollution Violations Come in Many Forms

Carcinogen pollution cases involve complex issues and require an experienced environmental law attorney who knows how local, regional and federal environmental regulations apply.

Environmental rights are an extension of the basic human rights that mankind requires and deserves. In addition to having the right to food, clean water, suitable shelter, and education, having a safe and sustainable environment is as critical as any of these other rights. California’s environmental laws are enforced by both state and local agencies, each charged with enforcing the laws governing specific types of environmental pollution.

Some cancer-causing carcinogen exposures, such as tobacco smoke and the sun’s rays can be avoided. But other carcinogens are harder to avoid, especially if they are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the materials we use to do our jobs. Scientists are studying which carcinogen exposures may cause or contribute to the development of cancer. The National Toxicology Program has identified the chemical substances listed below as known human carcinogens (note: not all of these may cause cancer):carcinogen and asbestos lawyers
