Attorneys from Cohen & Malad, LLP and Price Waicukauski & Riley, LLC have filed lawsuits on behalf of workers at an Indianapolis Wal-Mart warehouse facility who were exposed to toxic PCBs. Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, are chemicals that were often found in plastics and lubricants until they were banned from use in the United States in 1979. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found clear evidence that PCBs have toxic effects on the immune system, reproductive system, and nervous system. Additionally, PCBs are a known cancer causing agent.
On August 20, 2014 workers at the Wal-Mart warehouse facility were notified that they would not be allowed access to the building at 3333 N. Franklin Rd. Indianapolis, Indiana. Five days later, the workers were informed the reason for the denied access to the facility was due to the presence of PCBs at the site.
An informational meeting will be held for current and former workers of the contaminated Wal-Mart warehouse facility on Tuesday October 7, 2014 at 5:30pm at the Indianapolis Marriott East located at 7202 E. 21st Street.
Attorneys from Cohen & Malad, LLP and Price Waicukauski & Riley, LLC will talk about the lawsuits that have been filed and answer questions from the workers. It is not necessary to RSVP for this meeting. Workers who cannot attend the meeting are welcome to call us at 317-636-6481 or submit their question online and an attorney will contact them.
