Why Are There Concerns about the Water in Petersburgh?
When perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) contaminates water supplies, various health challenges can result. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), exposure can occur in the following ways:
- Contaminated drinking water
- Using PFOA-containing products
- Employment in certain industries
PFOA is also associated with several forms of cancer. Its cancer-causing agents include:
- Dichloroacetic acid
- Hexavalent chromium
- Total trihalomethanes
- Trichloroacetic acid
If you came into contact with PFOA through your local drinking water, our personal injury lawyer can help you build a financial compensation case that could help you recover the awards you need to manage your life.

How Long do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

Complying with the statute of limitations is only one reason to take swift action. The sooner we get to work on your case, the more time we have to speak with witnesses, collect evidence, consult experts, and possibly seek to have water samples tested without delay.
How Can I Get Water Contamination Compensation?
As an injured party in Petersburgh, you basically have two options for pursuing compensation via a water contamination lawsuit. You can file an individual lawsuit against the municipality responsible for your water supply. You can also start or join a class action lawsuit with other injured Petersburgh residents and property owners.
Our case review team at Ben Crump Law, PLLC, can explain the merits of each compensation option. We can offer guidance as you decide what option works for you and your family.

Your case file can include the following:
- Medical records

- Future prognosis
- Employment history
- Expert reports
Whenever possible, we collect evidence for your case. Our familiarity with state laws means we can sometimes obtain the evidence you might find hard to access. This can include water contamination reports, water testing results, and more.
What Compensation Can I Expect to Recover in a Petersburgh Water Contamination Lawsuit?
The financial awards you can receive with a successful lawsuit could involve compensation for many individual costs. To ensure your case is accurately assessed, we combine the following types of recoverable losses:
