Napoli Shkolnik PLLC Files A Class Action Lawsuit For Love Canal, New York

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 16:31:51 EST

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 16, 2018) - Napoli Shkolnik has filed a class action lawsuit against the City of Niagara Falls, the Niagara Falls Water Board, Occidental Petroleum Corporation (the former Hooker Chemical Corp.), and other defendants, for injuries related to toxic waste released from the Love Canal hazardous waste site.

Love Canal, an area synonymous with hazardous waste and public health impacts, is the site of a toxic waste dump created by Hooker that caused a public health emergency in the late 1970s. Much of the hazardous waste that caused this historic health and environmental crisis remains at the site to this day. The suit alleges that chemicals leaking from the site migrate throughout the area through groundwater, leaky sewer pipes, and through the air, exposing the public to the same chemicals that required a full-scale evacuation of the area almost four decades ago.
