Pets Cannot Be Included in Water Contamination Lawsuit
March 23, 2018
A local law firm is working to get money for families in southern El Paso County. Chemicals were found in the water there nearly two years ago.
Since then, many have been wondering if their sick pets can be included in the legal action. More than 500 people have reached out to the law firm asking if their pets can be included saying like the owners, they've also developed medical conditions including cancer.
McDivitt Law Firm, who partnered with a firm out of New York, Napoli Shkolnik, pets cannot be included in the lawsuit. It's because of a law in Colorado that considers pets as property.
