Remediating Polluted Property

Pollution remediation is a complex and costly process. It begins with a thorough site characterization to measure the extent of contamination in soil, groundwater, and sediments. Following this, various remediation plans are explored based on your site’s specific needs, which can include techniques such as Dig and Haul, Bio-remediation, and In-Situ treatments. 

While we don’t provide remediation services, we understand them deeply and specialize in helping you navigate the environmental impairment liability. Leveraging our expertise as insurance archeologists, we assist in identifying and utilizing existing insurance policies that may cover environmental cleanup costs to ensure your financial burden is minimized.

Frequently Asked Questions

Pollution incidents can have effects that are only discovered or become problematic years after the initial event. We are skilled in tracing back through historical records to locate insurance policies that were in effect when the pollution occurred. These policies, even if decades old, may still be viable for claiming coverage for current remediation efforts.

Yes. We not only locate old insurance policies but also have expertise in interpreting the complex language and coverage clauses within these policies to provide clarity on the extent of coverage and assist in resolving disputes with insurance companies. 

We conduct a detailed analysis of the timeline and nature of the pollution incident and then cross-reference this information with the historical insurance policies held by the property owner or responsible party. By examining the coverage periods, policy terms, and specific exclusions or conditions of each policy, we determine their relevance to the pollution event. This meticulous process ensures that all potential sources of insurance recovery are thoroughly explored and assessed for applicability to the remediation costs.
