At Heninger Garrison Davis, LLC, we understand the devastating impact that the Moody environmental landfill fire has had on the community. If you or someone you know has been affected by this disaster, we are here to represent you and to fight for your legal rights.
The Moody landfill was a property intended to be a place where tree trimmings, branches, and wood chips could be disposed of. In other words, a “green landfill.” However, in blatant violation of laws and regulations established by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM), other types of waste were also dumped at this site, including construction and demolition materials, household appliances, automotive waste, and scrap tires.
This illegal and reckless dumping, which took place over the course of at least a decade, eventually led to a catastrophic fire, causing widespread damage and endangering the health of everyone who lives nearby in harm’s way.
The surrounding neighborhoods have been hit hard by poor air quality, displacement, property destruction, and health risks. The smoke, soot, and toxic fumes threaten the safety and well-being of everyone in the area, and the damage has left many without a place to call home.
The long-term consequences have the potential to be severe. This fire has released chemicals into the air, soil, and water, presenting numerous hazards to those in St. Clair and Jefferson counties. The full extent of the fallout may not be known for quite some time, and may in fact continue to build over the years and decades to come.
