There are few dangerous hazards that are more likely to come as a surprise than water contamination. Unfortunately, many people face serious health issues due to harmful contaminants in their drinking water. If you are living with health issues due to water contamination, you might be wondering when to contact a lawyer.
If you or a member of your family are considering legal action due to water contamination, it could be time to speak to an attorney. This process can be confusing, especially if you are unfamiliar with the legal system. An attorney could advise you on the right time to more forward with your case.
When You Learn of Dangerous Exposure
It can be unsettling when you learn that you have been exposed to contaminated drinking water. This is especially true if your exposure has lasted for months or even years. It is understandable to be concerned about future health concerns, especially if there have been serious health issues reported to be linked to this incident of contamination.
If you have been exposed to contaminated drinking water, there is no reason to delay speaking with an attorney. Our firm could evaluate your circumstances and advise you if you have a viable claim for compensation. It is not always clear when you have grounds for a viable legal case. An attorney could investigate your situation to determine the extent of your exposure to contaminated water.
When You Have Symptoms Related to Contaminated Water
Knowing that you have been exposed to contaminated water is one thing. Experiencing symptoms of health conditions that are linked to this harmful exposure is another. If you have developed medical conditions that are tied to dangerous exposure, there is no reason to delay a discussion with an attorney. In many cases, an attorney could provide you with a path toward financial compensation in short order.
The specific health consequences of this exposure can vary. Water can be contaminated with a wide range of substances, from microorganisms to dangerous chemicals. This contamination could result in countless ailments, from infections to cancer.
When You Have Questions About Your Legal Rights
Some people simply have questions about their right regarding harmful contaminated water exposure. Even if you are unsure of your next course of action, it is helpful to discuss your legal options with an attorney. Experienced legal counsel could advise you on your rights and obligations in this situation.

When You Want to Resolve Your Claim
It is possible that you have already been contacted about potentially settling your case. In some situations, the company or government entity responsible for water contamination might try to settle these cases quickly. While receiving a settlement offer is a positive first step, these offers are not always in your best interest. In fact, some early offers are designed to resolve your claim for a fraction of their true value.
If you have received an offer to settle your case, it is vital that you speak to an attorney before accepting it. An attorney could advise you if the offer is reasonable and help you understand if it is likely to meet your needs now and in the future.
When You Want a New Perspective
It might be time to consider a discussion with an attorney even if you have already spoken to legal counsel. Not every attorney will agree on the viability of your case, and some attorneys have more experience with this type of legal action than others. If you would like a second opinion or a new perspective, it might be time to switch attorneys. If you have consulted with other firms but not yet hired legal counsel, now is the time to discuss your options with our firm.
