By the time the federal government started heavily regulating the dangerous chemicals TCE and PCE in the 1980s, these cancer-causing chemicals were already making their way into our soil and groundwater supplies, and making countless people sick. Even though there are tough laws on the books now, the government's enforcement efforts are often ineffective.
Our lawyers at The Collins Law Firm, however, can use these laws to fight on your behalf. From our law firm in Naperville, Illinois, our lawyers represent the victims of TCE and PCE contamination throughout the country.
We have recovered millions on behalf of our environmental litigation clients, and successfully fought to make their neighborhoods safe places to live and raise children again. Contact us to continue the fight. We can help you when you have been harmed by contamination.
A Problem That Has Been Decades In The Making
Sadly, the illegal dumping of the industrial solvents like TCE and PCE has been going on for decades. Corporations spent the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s dumping these chemicals. The legacy created by this illegal dumping is the endangerment of health and property values.
Besides ending up in our soil and groundwater, these chemicals can also seep into buildings in vapor form. These chemicals have been found to cause health problems such as:
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
- Nervous system damage
- Impaired fetal development
- Immune system damage
When faced with these devastating threats, it is important to work with attorneys who know how to get the best results for their clients. We will not just stop at getting you compensation. We will fight to make corporations clean up the air you breathe, the water you drink and the soil you build your home on.
