Timothy J Walerius has the science background to understand the problem, the legal training to understand the statutes and the experience to negotiate effectively with the regulatory individuals.
Common issues that may arise include:
- Bringing company operations into compliance with local, state and federal regulatory laws
- Addressing issues related to the accidental release of one or more chemicals into the air, water or on to the ground
- Toxic tort issues related to workers exposed to hazardous chemicals
- Real estate transactions involving environmentally impaired or potentially impaired property
- Issues related to asbestos and lead-based paint
Liability under environmental statutes frequently takes current owners or tenants by surprise because they did not deposit hazardous substances on the site — or they knowingly or negligently allowed unsafe conditions to persist on the property. The old saying “Ignorance of the law is no excuse” can be a costly lesson for the property or business owner who fails to comprehend and understand this complex area of the law.
Once liability attaches, it can seem limitless, and the costs associated with liability also are virtually limitless. You can put an end to this downward spiral — with the help of the Law Office of Timothy J Walerius, Ltd.
