Attorney Ethan Vessels, of Marietta, Ohio, discusses C8 contamination and C8 contamination lawsuits. At Fields, Dehmlow & Vessels, we are representing individuals who have suffered illness because of the C8 contamination of drinking water in Southeast Ohio. Unfortunately, water contamination is still a problem in parts of the United States. Over a period of years, DuPont released a chemical, known as C8, into the water supply of the mid-Ohio valley. The water supplies in vicinity of Parkersburg, Belpre, Little Hocking, Tuppers Plains, and the surrounding areas were affected. C8 has been determined to be very harmful, and it is a carcinogen. A court-ordered scientific panel has determined that C8 is linked to: • Kidney cancer • Testicular cancer • Thyroid disease • Ulcerative colitis (inflammatory bowel disease) • High cholesterol • Preeclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy) Our firm has joined forces with a consortium of experienced lawyers to represent people who have suffered illnesses caused by C8 exposure. We are representing affected people on an individual basis, not as part of a class action. We offer FREE CONSULTATIONS, and if we accept your case, we offer contingent fees: there is NO FEE UNLESS THERE IS A RECOVERY. If you have questions or need representation because of exposure to C8, please call us at 740-374-5346.
