Environmental Insurance

In contamination cases, finding the resources to pay for a cleanup is often crucial.  Anderson & Kreiger has litigated and negotiated insurance recovery in dozens of Superfund and Chapter 21E cases.

  • We have recovered significant amounts for clients, ranging from a former owner of a site contaminated with nuclear waste under a specialized industry policy; owners and operators of contaminated fuel storage and dispensing facilities; a bank that had foreclosed on badly contaminated property in central Massachusetts under policies in effect long before the foreclosure; a dry-cleaning company located on one of the most heavily contaminated sites in the Berkshires; and a homeowner with seriously contaminated residential property resulting from a leaking sub-slab oil line at her suburban Boston home.
  • We recovered several million dollars for a water district from a dozen insurers of the company that contaminated its water supply.
  • We have obtained millions of dollars for a variety of industrial, commercial and residential property owners, often under decades-old policies.
