Contaminated Water Lawsuits

In recent years, you may have heard about PFAS lawsuits, or been in an industry where exposure to high levels of PFAS has caused concern.

Every American is exposed to some level of PFAS – per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances – as a result of drinking water contaminated with PFAS or using consumer products that contain PFAS. They are known as “forever chemicals” and are found in clothing, cookware, cosmetics, electronics, firefighting foam, packaging, and many other products.

In fact, according to The Pew Charitable Trusts, these chemicals are so prevalent they’re found in the blood of 97 percent of Americans.

The problem with these chemicals lies in the fact that can’t naturally break down, so they end up accumulating in water, soil, and even in your blood. Unfortunately, studies have shown that high levels of PFAS can lead to an increased risk of cancer, among other alarming health issues.

As the adverse health effects of PFAS exposure are studied more and more, lawsuits from this exposure have increased. More than 1,200 PFAS lawsuits were filed in 2021, according to Bloomberg Law, and new lawsuits against PFAS manufacturers are being filed frequently.

If you or a loved one suspect that you were affected by PFAS exposure, alongside contacting a doctor for testing and evaluation, you should consider contacting a lawyer to determine your legal rights. You may be eligible to file a claim or join in a PFAS class action lawsuit, and the skilled attorneys at Phillips Law Group can review your case to determine your next steps.

There is no risk in contacting us to learn more and to see if you qualify to pursue legal action in a PFAS lawsuit. Our lawyers work on contingency, meaning you pay nothing unless we ultimately take on and win your case. Give us a call for a free consultation to learn more!

+ Should I Accept an Insurance Offer?

Insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies, and their priority is to make sure they pay as little as possible for the insurance claim. Talk to a lawyer before accepting an insurance offer to make sure you are getting a fair settlement.

    More Information on PFAS Lawsuits

    Why Are PFAS Dangerous?

    There is increasing evidence that PFAS can cause health issues. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “studies of laboratory animals given large amounts of PFAS indicate that some PFAS may affect growth and development,” and those same studies “indicate PFAS may affect reproduction, thyroid function, the immune system, and injure the liver.”

    According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, a federal public health agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, research involving humans suggests that high levels of certain PFAS may lead to health issues including but not limited to:

    • Increased cholesterol levels
    • Decreased vaccine response in children
    • Changes in liver enzymes
    • Increased risk of high blood pressure or pre-eclampsia in pregnant women
    • Small decreases in infant birth weights
    • Increased risk of kidney or testicular cancer

    What Products Have PFAS?

    Clothing, cookware, cosmetics, furniture, electronics, adhesives, food packaging, heat-resistant non-stick cooking surfaces, the insulation of electrical wire, textiles, carpets, cleaners, personal care products, and more can contain PFAS. Drinking water and AFFF firefighting foam can also contain these chemicals.

    It is virtually impossible to avoid exposure to PFAS entirely, but it is possible to try to limit your exposure to potentially toxic chemicals by being aware of what’s in the products you use at home.

    What Compensation Can You Get For PFAS Exposure?

    If you have high blood levels of PFAS and have cancer, you should speak to a lawyer. Research about PFAS and its impact on health in humans is still developing, but there are ongoing class-action lawsuits against PFAS manufacturers, and you could potentially receive compensation for:

    • Medical bills
    • Pain and suffering
    • Lost wages
    • Future lost income
    • …and more
