Congress established the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in 1980, which is commonly known as Superfund law. The Superfund program is administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and was formed to investigate and foster remediation to sites contaminated with hazardous waste substances.
A subject matter expert in Superfund programs might be called upon to provide expert testimony in a class action toxic tort litigation case, air quality impact disputes, or public health investigations.
Litigation support services by a Superfund expert witness could include forensic analysis of a contaminated property, an expert opinion, an expert report, deposition, and expert witness testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a qualified expert with prior expert witness experience.
