Since the early 1950’s, Du Pont has used C-8, a hazardous substance, in the operations at its Plant. Aware of the potential toxicity of the chemical when released into the environment, Du Pont discovered over the next several decades that C-8 was in the blood of individuals all over the country. The highest levels of penetration were found in people in Ohio and West Virginia that live and work close to the Du Pont plant. Additionally, Du Pont knew C-8 exposure caused severe health problems, such as cancer, and never reported the dangers of C-8 to the public or the government. Even worse, Du Pont continues its use of C-8 to prevent loss of its profits. Douglas & London actively represents people seeking recovery against Du Pont for personal injuries caused by the release of harmful levels of C-8 into the environment and, as a result, into the air and drinking water of the area surrounding its Washington Works Plant in Wood County, WV.
