Illness from Toxic Landfills Nationwide

Are You Ill Because You Live Near a Landfill?

Landfill toxicity can present major health concerns to citizens living nearby. At The Simon Law Firm, P.C., our environmental law attorneys represent people nationwide who have become ill due to landfill toxins and a variety of unsafe environmental exposures. Whether it is exposure to toxic fumes, dirty water, or contaminated soil, landfills in close proximity to residential areas pose significant health risks.

Has The Simon Law Firm, P.C. Represented Similar Situations?

At The Simon Law Firm, P.C., we have represented homeowners from coast to coast—including in Clinton, IL; Newburyport, MA; and the panhandle of Florida—who have lived near landfills that were negligently operated. In these lawsuits, we claimed that due to the landfill’s negligent operation, the air was contaminated with hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. We went on to argue that exposure to this pollution caused nearby residents to suffer from respiratory systems. Our firm also stated that the odors from the low levels of hydrogen sulfide in the air made it impossible for the residents to just enjoy their own property.

In one case, leachate (liquid containing contaminates from a landfill that can include various carcinogens such as arsenic and benzene) was also entering into the aquifer. In another case we handled in the Florida panhandle, a survey revealed that people living less than a mile from the landfill had more health issues such as respiratory problems, nausea, dizziness, and other gastrointestinal problems than those living a mile or two away. Other illnesses common to those who live around landfills include lung problems, headaches, and more.
