In the Wood County Circuit Court, a class action lawsuit has been filed. The lawsuit states that this potentially dangerous substance may have been contaminating water in the area since as early as the 1950s. DuPont manufactures Teflon and other products, products which used C8 in their production. A science panel has found that exposure to C8 can lead to pregnancy-induced hypertension, kidney cancer, testicular cancer, thyroid disease, and ulcerated colitis. Due to these findings, DuPont is not able to argue that C8 can cause certain diseases.
Attorney Van Sant also stated that in cases involving a class action lawsuit, it is imperative that you have legal representation on your side that you can trust. He also stated that those who have been exposed to toxic substances like C8 may not see the consequences for years. Therefore, just because you may not be showing any symptoms as of yet, it does not mean that it will not happen.
