Toxic exposure cases help empower employees to fight for their right to be protected, satisfactorily informed, and to stay safe. They also bring awareness to challenge and higher the expectations of companies who are not serving their employees justly.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are human-made chemicals used in industrial environments and many household items, such as cookware, carpeting, stain-resistant products, and automotive products. The chemical structure prevents them from breaking down in the environment and is alleged to cause a wide range of illnesses and conditions, including forms of cancer.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer or another illness and suspect PFAS exposure, contact The Lyon Firm to investigate.
While certain forms of PFAS are no longer used, concerns over their continued presence mean that communities and consumers are demanding clean-up and compensation for health issues said to arise from PFAS contamination. Products like carpets treated with PFAS dumped in landfills are a concern. Some suggest that PFAS are in the drinking water of most U.S. residents, making the problem pervasive. These issues affect individuals and any company that may use water in any part of its products.
