January 29, 2013

News and Case Results

Attorney Ethan Vessels and Attorney Jim SlaterMarietta, Ohio attorney Ethan Vessels and a group of experienced colleagues are focused on helping residents of certain Ohio water districts learn about the health effects of water contamination from a chemical commonly referred to as C8.

Attorney Vessels and Akron attorney Jim Slater recently mailed information notices to approximately 15,000 homes located in or near the southeast Ohio cities and towns of Marietta, Belpre, Coolville, Reedsville, Tuppers Plains, Racine and Pomeroy. The notice provides people in these areas with a basic understanding of how C8 contaminated drinking water supplies in the region. It also promotes awareness of a scientific study linking C8 to health conditions that include kidney cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid disease, high cholesterol, ulcerated colitis and preeclampsia.

In addition to the notices, the attorneys are offering to meet personally with anyone who either lives or once lived in these areas of Ohio in order to discuss the legal rights of a person who has been diagnosed with one of the above referenced health conditions. These consultations are being offered to people free of charge.

If you, a friend or family member has developed a health condition linked to C8 and would like to schedule a free and confidential meeting, please contact attorney Ethan Vessels by calling (740) 374-5346 or attorney Jim Slater by calling 1-800-297-9191.
