Hugh James has built up a team of environmental law experts and has had unrivalled success in applying the law to protect the environment.
Environment solicitors at Hugh James are specialist dust nuisance lawyers who fight for local residents suffering from dust nuisance at their homes. We represent clients on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis in the pursuit of injunctions to prevent the nuisance from occurring in the future, and compensation to recognise the interference and disruption suffered in the past.
Typically dust nuisance claims are against the site owners and/or operators of the facility that is causing the dust.
If you are suffering from dust nuisance you may regularly find dust settling on your cars, doors, windowsills and garden furniture. We have represented clients who have suffered from these problems, they’ve had to continually clean their outdoor possessions to stop the dust from accumulating. Some clients have alleged that the fallout has caused damage to their vehicles and uPVC window frames, and analysis has shown that some particles have burnt into their cars and windowsills.
Our environmental law specialists have dealt with a number of cases involving dust nuisance. We have acted for hundreds of residents who complain that the dust from various sites are affecting them in their own homes. In some cases, there has been a specific allegation of dust nuisance, whereas in other cases, dust is one of a number of other nuisances that combined form a ‘state of affairs’ that constitutes the nuisance. All cases have been settled with one case ongoing, this case involves dust and other nuisance from a cement works.
We are one of the UK’s leading specialists in the field of environmental law and one of only a handful of firms in the country with the knowledge and expertise to successfully conduct environmental claims.
