Flint Water Crisis
The lead poisoning law firm of Levy Konigsberg LLP is leading the way in the Flint Water Crisis litigation. While other firms have sought to lump all of Flint’s children into one class action lawsuit, Levy Konigsberg recognizes that each child was affected by this tragedy in a different way, and that individual lawsuits are the only way to adequately represent each child. From early February 2016, Levy Konigsberg began a push to ensure that each child could get their own individual case. The lead poisoning law firm now represents over 1300 children, individually, who were lead poisoned during the crisis.
Levy Konigsberg was also the first law firm to target the multibillion dollar multinational corporation Veolia, Inc. for its role in the mass poisoning of the residents of Flint, on behalf of individual children. Veolia, a water consulting company based in France and valued at over $11 billion, was instrumental in the covering up the harm caused by switching Flint’s water source from the safe Detroit water system to the polluted and dangerous Flint River water. Flint’s residents paid Veolia $40,000.00 to study the water crisis in early 2015 and make recommendations for ending it. Instead of focusing on how to make the water safe for drinking, cooking, and bathing, the company focused on how to treat the water’s discoloration. The company even went so far as to assure residents that the water was safe to drink, despite all evidence to the contrary.
Levy Konigsberg has taken a leading role in negotiating and drafting a Case Management Order in an effort to lower barrier to entry for other individual lawsuits. When the Case Management Order is entered, new lawsuits filed by individuals should have a lower filing fee, utilize a short form complaint (reducing paperwork), and a fair and efficient fact sheet to provide everyone information necessary for the lawsuits to proceed in a timely matter.
Levy Konigsberg LLP has won over $100 million on behalf of lead poisoned children throughout the United States. Partnering with local Flint, Michigan firm Robinson, Carter & Crawford PLLC, Levy Konigsberg is committed to making the children of Flint whole. With two offices located in downtown Flint and Flint Township, it is easy for anyone to meet with our staff and have any questions answered.
