Helping Those Seriously Harmed By Environmental Contamination

If your property has been impacted by pollution in the soil or groundwater, you want an experienced lawyer to help you protect your rights. Environmental claims can be highly complex and few law firms in Montana have actually successfully litigated these types of claims. The litigation can be lengthy and involve substantial research and investigation. You want a law firm that has the experience and the resources to help you recover full and fair compensation for your losses.

The attorneys at Kovacich Snipes, P.C., have extensive experience representing individuals throughout Montana who have been harmed by environmental contamination on their properties. Several of our attorneys have received the Trial Lawyer of the Year award from the Montana Trial Lawyers Association for their advocacy on behalf of victims. The firm knows what is involved in environmental tort litigation and has the resources to litigate your claim successfully.

Personal Injury Claims Connected To Environmental Contamination

The firm handles all personal injury claims resulting from soil and groundwater contamination on private property. If you live near a refinery, railroad or other industrial operation, you may have been exposed to chemicals or other contaminants that have migrated to your land, contaminating your groundwater and exposing you to hazardous substances, including cancer-causing (carcinogenic) agents.

Because our lawyers have successfully handled environmental claims in Montana, they understand how to construct an effective case to demonstrate a link between the contamination and your injuries.

Property Claims

The firm will also help you recover compensation for any environmental cleanup required to remove contaminants from your soil or groundwater, as well as the loss of property value caused by the contamination. In some instances, where the firm can show that the contamination was caused willfully, with knowledge of or reckless disregard for the consequences, you may be able to recover punitive damages.
