Water Contamination Miami, FL Lawyers
Water contamination can almost always be avoided if those responsible for the maintenance of the drinkable water executed more safety and preventative measures in eliminating dangerous chemicals from the water, such as carcinogens.
A test done in North Bennington, Vermont found perfluorooctanoic acid in the water. It was heavily contaminated with this chemical, which had a concentration of 10 times more than what is recommended for water to have. This deadly chemical has been increasingly existent in supplies of water all over the United States, and seem to be found in water supplies near plastic or chemical factories.
Perfluorooctanoic acid used to be used as an element in the manufacturing of microwavable bags, stain-resistant carpets, and non-stick products, but it is no longer in use in many manufacturing companies because of the health concerns that it brings. There has been a link to complications during pregnancy, cancer, and other issues because of this chemical.
Anyone’s water that has been contaminated by this deadly chemical can hold the companies accountable for their irresponsibility that led to an adversity in the person’s health. The attorneys at Percy Martinez will evaluate any contaminated water case with free consultation.
