C8 Attorney – Have you been exposed to Dupont C8?
Dupont C8 Lawsuit
Thousands of people living in southern Ohio and West Virginia have been exposed to the toxic chemical C8. Are you entitled to compensation for injury caused by C8 contamination in your drinking water? You might want to talk to a C8 attorney.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has found that the chemical C8, used to make Teflon, has been released into the water systems near Parkersburg, West Virginia. Officials at the Dupont manufacturing plant there have known about the toxic problem since the 1980s, but only informed area residents recently. In fact, the company announced it plans to continue manufacturing the chemical there through 2015.
C8 causes a variety of health problems, most notably:
- Fibroid cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
You may be entitled to compensation if you’ve contracted any of these cancers.
In fact, Dupont has agreed to a settlement in a previous class action lawsuit connected to this matter. The settlement of that class action lawsuit allows residents who had been drinking water for one year before Jan. 1, 2005, to apply for compensation if the water was from:
- Little Hocking Water Association in Ohio
- City of Belpre Water Supply in Ohio
- The Tupper Plains-Chester Water District in Ohio
- The Village of Pomeroy Water Supply System in Ohio.
- Lubbock Public Service District in West Va.
- Mason County Public Service District, West. Va.
