Abington Cole + Ellery is conducting an investigation regarding a leak of trichloroethylene (TCE) in Springfield, Greene County, Missouri.
Trichloroethylene is a cancer-causing compound that was used as a solvent to remove grease from metal parts during a manufacturing process performed at a now-closed industrial site near the Springfield airport. TCE is now being found in the well water of some homes in the Springfield area.
Exposure to TCE can cause a myriad of health problems including, but not necessarily limited to: cancer (especially of the kidney or liver), central nervous system damage (Parkinson's disease), kidney damage, liver damage, immune system damage, congenital heart defects, damage to fetus in pregnant women. Symptoms of exposure may sometimes be similar to alcohol intoxication: headache, dizziness, and confusion.
If you believe you have been harmed by the leak of TCE into your well water and would like to learn more about participating in a class action lawsuit regarding this matter, please submit your information via the form on this webpage or call 800.969.6570.
