Environment solicitors at Hugh James is 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.

The effects of dust nuisance

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 dust nuisance experience

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. Whatever type of industrial works you are experiencing dust nuisance from, we can help.
