Our firm’s founders, Michael Stag and Stuart Smith, pioneered oilfield waste litigation, namely “Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material” (NORM) and Technological Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (TENORM). Radioactive Isotopes are among the most toxic materials known to man. Radiation not only causes cancer but it damages property for thousands of years.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, radioactive contamination can damage personal property or affect health if a person is exposed. There are several types of radioactive contamination: internal contamination, external contamination, radioactive contamination, and radiation exposure. Internal contamination occurs when a person breathes in or ingests radioactive material released into the environment. External contamination occurs when radioactive materials get on a person’s skin, hair, and clothing. External contamination can become internal contamination if a person’s body absorbs the radioactive material. People who have been externally contaminated can also pass on this contamination to other people. Radioactive contamination occurs when radioactive material is released into the environment. This can cause plants, agriculture, and animals to become contaminated. Radiation exposure occurs when radioactive materials give off energy and a person becomes exposed to this potentially dangerous energy. If a person or animal is externally or internally contaminated, he or she can expose others to radioactive energy. If you believe radioactive material has contaminated your home, community, or neighborhood, contact Smith Stag, personal injury lawyers in New Orleans, Louisiana today. We have experience with this kind of litigation and may be able to help you seek justice for your losses and injuries.
