Legal Answers
44 Questions Answered

Q. Can I sue a company for mishandled regulated chemicals
A: If you did not suffer a severe injury as a result of exposure to the chemicals on your roommate’s work clothes, taking legal action against the employer will most likely be a fruitless endeavor. Whether the practice of having workers clean their own uniforms is legal highly depends on what pesticides they handle during the job and how harmful these chemicals are to human health. Accordingly, laundering contaminated work clothes might be relatively safe as long as certain precautions are taken. That being said, your concerns are perfectly reasonable, since exposure to certain pesticides has been associated with serious diseases such as leukemia, melanoma, and lung cancer. I advise you to find out the exact pesticides your roommate uses and subsequently contact the National Pesticide Information Center to inquire with regard to the potential health hazard they pose. They can also provide your roommate with information on how to safely launder contaminated clothing so as to minimize exposure. If it turns out his employer is dealing with uniform cleaning in an inadequate way, you should report this problem to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Q. Can I bring a class action suit against JCP&L?
A: Yes, initiating a class action lawsuit might be a good idea if there have been multiple complaints from residents which the company failed to promptly resolve. Depending on the extent of the problem, JCP&L may be held liable for corporate misconduct and/or environmental damage. However, before filing a class action lawsuit, it is crucial to consult a lawyer specialized in this area of practice, namely in Environmental Law, as they have the necessary knowledge to thoroughly evaluate every aspect of your situation and tell you whether taking legal action is a worthy endeavor. If initiating a class action lawsuit proves unfeasible, a lawyer with vast experience in pursuing cases which involve environmental pollution will also be able to provide you with alternative options. Finally, to increase your potential lawsuit’s chances of success, you should get as many residents involved as possible, preferably people who were significantly injured or whose lives have been severely affected by the company’s activity. It is highly recommended to have at least 40 individuals partaking in the lawsuit in addition to the lead plaintiff, who can be you or another resident.
Q. My kids has lead posioning from our house I was wondering if I can sue?
A: Yes. If exposure to lead has resulted in health problems, you can successfully file a personal injury lawsuit against whoever is responsible for the contamination. Please contact a lawyer specialized in Environmental Law and they will gladly assist you with recovering financial compensation. They will be able to identify the liable party, gather sufficient evidence of the lead contamination in your house, as well as promptly take care of the necessary paperwork on your behalf.
