Man-made disasters can be easier to resolve than natural disasters. For one thing, there's someone responsible for the disaster even if it is an accident. When there's a person or company to blame you can file a lawsuit to obtain compensation for damages to property for the resulting harm to the environment and animals, and for health issues possibly arising from cleaning up or even just breathing the air.
It's easy to file a lawsuit, but sometimes it's difficult to prove significant losses or damages unless you and others join up and get a class action lawsuit started.
There are many reasons to find a lawyer after a man-made disaster. Here's a short list to help you get started.
