Spills of gasoline or petroleum from underground pipelines and storage tanks, even from decades ago, can forever contaminate land. Compounds such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene, and methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) from petroleum products frequently sit unnoticed underground, exposing several generations to toxic exposure quietly and without warning.
The foremost concern is the risk of groundwater contamination, resulting in people unknowingly using water tainted with carcinogens for drinking, cooking, bathing, and washing. In addition, the contamination of land can cause land value to plummet.
Air pollution can be a major source of respiratory problems including asthma, sinus infections, pneumonia, and other serious health problems. The effects of airborne contaminates is especially pronounced in the young and the elderly. In addition to the health risks posed, air contaminants can do damage to structures, decrease land value, and possibly become a soil contaminate. Fallout from such contamination can often be very difficult to remove, resulting in constant exposure.

Environmental harm can come from the use of pesticides and herbicides. Companies may fail to disclose what it knows about the product, instead marketing the pesticide or herbicide as environmentally friendly and safe for use in residential areas and commercially-owned land. These chemicals can cause damage to nearby trees, and run-offs from pesticides and herbicides can affect the water supply, posing health risks for humans.
Even though there may be nothing physically affecting your property, noise and smells negatively impact the value of your property and your ability to enjoy it. Typically, a number of property owners are affected, particularly in urban areas, making these types of claims appropriate for proceeding as a class action.
