Plating Shop Liability Issues

Historically, companies that did various types of plating, including chrome and zinc plating, utilized large vats of different chemicals as part of the complex plating process. In many areas, with the changes in regulations, particularly air regulations, the companies were forced to shut down and/or relocate. Unfortunately, many of the chemicals utilized in various plating operations are heavily regulated as contaminants in the soil and groundwater. Thus, not only do the current and former property owners face liability for these properties but also the owners and operators of the former plating companies. This liability may exist even if the plating company has not operated on the property for decades. As the liability for cleanup can be substantial, it very important to understand the complexities of the liabilities, locating historical insurance and pursuing insurance coverage to reach a result to both pay for the cleanup of the property and minimize the respective liabilities.
