WBOC Quotes Louise Caro on Blades Water Contamination Suit
May 16, 2018
The law firm Napoli Shkolnik PLLC has announced plans to file a class action lawsuit after the town of Blades’ water was found to have elevated levels of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs).
Louise Caro, the firm’s environmental law department head, says they’ve had a number of people approach them with health concerns, such as thyroid issues and pregnancy complications. She says right now they are collecting clients and trying to determine who or what caused the contamination.
“If there’s a facility and it’s part of their chemical process, then that facility for sure would be the only one on the hook,” she tells WBOC. “But if they bought from somebody else and they are using it and this is what’s causing it then they both will be responsible.”
