Massachusetts Air Pollution Attorney

The law protects your right to breathe freely. Your neighbor has no more right to pollute your air than to pollute your land or water. If your neighbor—a power plant, a factory, a landfill, a construction development, or any other type of entity—is generating noxious fumes or dust that significantly impair your use and enjoyment of your property, your right to clean air is being violated. You have a right to stop the pollution, and to be compensated for any damage or sickness that you and your family have suffered.

Do not make the common mistake of relying solely on a board of health or environmental protection agency to address your air pollution problem. While these boards and agencies serve an important purpose, and must be informed of any air pollution that you experience, they generally lack the resources to enforce the law with sufficient vigor. If you are a victim of air pollution, you need to call a private attorney. Contact Attorney Vander Salm. He will fight for your right to clean air.
