May 31, 2018
Father Chris Collins alleges that the minor plaintiffs sustained injuries due to exposure to lead and other toxic substances from the defendants’
ownership, disposal and release of lead and materials containing lead in La Oroya, Peru. He alleges the minors were damaged by physical and psychological
injuries, permanent disabilities, weight loss, anemia and other economic and non-economic damages.
The plaintiff holds Doe Run Resources Corp., A.R. Acquisition, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently stored, maintained and released
materials containing lead and other toxic substances at its complex in La Oroya. They are represented by Wilson D. Sikes and Paul J. Napoli of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC in Edwardsville, Illinois among others.
