What to Know About PFAS Water Contamination Settlement

In an unparalleled judicial encounter symbolizing a major shift in environmental litigation, a landmark settlement emerged on June 22, 2023. Originating from allegations against the rampant propagation of PFAS – the notorious ‘forever chemicals,’ the class action lawsuit culminated in an astounding settlement of $10.3 billion, with estimated figures potentially escalating to $12.5 billion.

This groundbreaking lawsuit stands as a firm rebuttal to the concealed and perpetual menace that has seeped into our communities – the contamination of our water supplies by PFAS. Constituting a broad spectrum of man-made chemicals, PFAS have been extensively employed across a multitude of products, ranging from simple household items to broad-scale industrial materials – the ubiquity of these chemicals in our lives is an alarming reality.

The sheer prevalence of these chemicals, however, isn’t the sole concern. ‘Forever chemicals,’ as PFAS compounds are referred to, are known for their persistent nature and resistance to degradation. Once introduced into our water systems, they perpetuate in the environment, causing widespread health and environmental impacts.

This class action settlement serves as a beacon of hope in the battle against corporate disregard for public health and safety. It signifies a monumental achievement, not only for securing a substantial financial settlement but also for amplifying the issue of PFAS water contamination to a global audience.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is PFAS?

PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are a group of hazardous man-made chemicals that have been produced and used in various industries around the globe. These chemicals are very persistent in the environment and in the human body – hence called ‘forever chemicals’.

Who is eligible for the PFAS Water Contamination Lawsuit?

All individuals who have suffered as a result of exposure to PFAS water contamination are eligible. This includes anyone currently residing or who has previously resided in an area with known PFAS contamination.

What harmful health effects are associated with PFAS?

PFAS exposure is linked with health conditions such as increased risk of cancer, birth defects, liver damage, reduced response to vaccines, high cholesterol levels, and lower infant birth weights.

What does the PFAS Water Contamination Lawsuit aim to achieve?

The lawsuit’s objective is to hold responsible the chemical companies that produced and profited from PFAS products. They should bear the cost of remediation, not the individuals or communities affected. Another crucial purpose is to ensure that individuals who have suffered due to PFAS contamination receive deserved financial compensation.

How soon should we act?

The Settlement has strict deadlines with a limited window for Phase One eligible entities to act. Key dates are outlined in our timeline. We project that Phase One claims might need submission by April 2024.

What is the benefit of hiring counsel for this case?

The settlement procedure is complicated, encompassing contributions from multiple funds. Correct data representation is key, with larger entities possibly facing additional challenges, hence higher compensation. As payments could be spread over years, regular monitoring is crucial. Engaging proficient counsel ensures your interests are protected.

What are Phase One vs Phase Two claims?

Many water infrastructures have been classified as ‘Phase One’ qualified in the resolution plan. These systems have to deal with an urgent schedule to assemble information, evaluate their water condition, complete the requisite forms, and lodge their proposals accordingly. It’s predicted that Phase One will see returns from the preliminary fund arranged in 2024. However, entities under Phase Two will undergo and forward their claims at a different period but they’ll receive payouts following a parallel method as their Phase One counterparts.

What determines our compensation amount?

Your settlement sum is derived from a complex equation. The key variables include the operating flow rates of your systems and the results of your PFAS tests. Particularly, PFAS test outcomes that surpass specific thresholds could result in increased payouts.
