Any Ohio resident who has lived in the vicinity of Parkersburg, West Virginia may have been unknowingly exposed to a dangerous chemical that was emitted from a DuPont manufacturing facility near the Ohio River city. The chemical (commonly known as C8) was released from the factory over a period of years and contaminated the region’s drinking water supplies.
As a result of the contamination, a court ordered scientific panel was formed in 2005 to study the health effects of C8 on people. Since that time, the C8 Scientific Panel has issued reports linking C8 to kidney cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid disease, ulcerated colitis (a type of inflammatory bowel disease) and high cholesterol.
Cases of Ohioans suffering from the health conditions listed by the C8 Scientific Panel are surfacing. These victims and their families are taking action by filing lawsuits in Ohio courts seeking justice for their injuries and damages.
