After the Flint, Michigan story gained national attention, people everywhere became a bit more aware of the water they drink. Unfortunately, though, Flint is just one small example of water contamination in our country.
Water contamination can lead to extensive health problems and even death for those who drink it long-term and are unaware of the effects. Communities effected by water contamination not only face health concerns, but also the loss of property value and a decreased level of life. People do not want to move to an area that has toxins in the water and not being able to drink water in your own home is a major hindrance on everyday life.
It is the job of water providers to test and monitor water supply and ensure it is safe for residents to drink. Failure to do this leads to these large-scale problems like we saw in Flint.
The attorneys at Stewart & Stewart are working hard to recover damages to those affected by water contamination and working to hold those water providers accountable. If you were affected by water contamination, either to your health or your property, you deserve to be compensated for your suffering. Contact us today to learn more.
