1. An environmental consultant performed a Phase I site assessment to identify operations using hazard materials. After receiving a clean Phase I report, the investor decided to purchase the site for development. Within a few weeks after breaking ground, hazard materials were discovered in the soil. When the land owner had to pay for the removal of hazard materials found on the site, he filed suit against the consultant for the faulty Phase I report.
Outcome - The environmental consultant paid $50,000, the cost to clean the site.
2. An engineering firm designed a pressure relief system for its' client, a coal beneficiation plant. This multi-million dollar plant was about to open when it was discovered the system the insured designed was significantly undersized.

A lawsuit followed against the engineering firm.
Outcome - The engineering firm paid $15,000 for the loss of the tax credit.
3. An environmental consultant performed a Phase I site assessment at a site that had been previously used for industrial purposes.
