Three families have filed an Ohio Class Action Lawsuit against appliance manufacturer, Whirlpool Corp. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the families are seeking a total of $750 million from the company.
The suit was filed this past Thursday and alleges the company was directly responsible for causing a plague of cancer in the region that has sickened more than 40 children since the mid-90s. Experts say the cancers can be linked to a chemical that has been found in extremely high levels at a park in the town of Clyde, Ohio. Whirlpool was once the owner of the park and the land was used as part of a washing machine factory.
While there has not been a direct connection established between the cases of cancer and certain contaminants found in the ground, the families have hired a private company to conduct soil analysis across the region. In the meantime, Whirlpool has stated it too will continue to investigate the claims and are anxious to get to the bottom of the problem, considering the large number of employees they have in the area.
Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy and their team of Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys acknowledge how serious an environmental injury can be. That's why the firm is hopeful a decision in the case will bring some sense of closure to the families of the victims.
