Coal Prep Labs
Have you been exposed to PERC while working at coal prep labs in West Virginia? Get a free lawsuit review from our environmental lawyers.
There are dozens of coal preparation laboratories in the United States. These prep labs test samples of raw coal purchased by the nation’s energy providers to determine the coal’s suitability for a number of applications.
Many of these coal prep labs, including those in West Virginia, use a dangerous chemcial called perchloroethylene (“PERC”). The men and women working at these coal prep labs have been exposed to this toxic chemcial and are now suffering from central nervous system disorders.
The environmental attorneys at Weitz & Luxenberg are litigators with extensive courtroom experience and an in-depth understanding of the environmental laws involving PERC exposure. The firm recently secured a landmark settlement against some of the country's biggest oil companies for contaminating public drinking water supplies with a gasoline additive known as methyl butyl tertiary ether, or MTBE. Most of those defendants agreed to pay $423 million to settle suits involving the contamination of 153 public and private drinking water systems nationally.
