If environmental pollutants have affected you or your community, you may be eligible to seek legal compensation. Claims for environmental contamination can include financial loss following damage to crops from pollution, or sickness caused by unsafe chemical storage. It’s important to act as soon as possible if you believe you may be affected by an environmental contaminant, as most Australian states and territories have time limits for claims.
