Jackson Water Crisis
Fighting for the Children and Families of Jackson, Mississippi
Levy Konigsberg and attorneys Corey Stern, John Guinan, and Melanie Daly are at the forefront of the Jackson, Mississippi Water Crisis litigation. This same legal team worked tirelessly to secure a $626-million settlement in a Flint Water Crisis lawsuit, and we are determined to work equally as hard for the Jackson community. Our attorneys are representing more than two-thousand children who have been exposed to unsafe levels of lead in Jackson’s water. If your child was exposed to Jackson’s lead-contaminated water, then call (800) 315-3806 now.
There is still time to take legal action to demand justice and compensation.
What is the Jackson Water Crisis?
The Water Crisis in Jackson involves an entire community forced to drink and use water that has toxic -unsafe lead levels, and a broken water system that has yet to be fixed. Even today, the City remains out of compliance with regulations designed to ensure that drinking water is safe, and the people Jackson do not have a water system that they can rely on. And to compound matters, efforts to deliver filters and bottled water are lacking, to say the least.
What is the cause of this public water crisis? A decade of neglect, riddled with terrible governmental policies, lack of oversight, lying to the public, and the help of at least one private entity.
What is the result of this water crisis? The full scope of the injuries, damage, and trauma that this ongoing tragedy has caused is unknown. However, one thing is certain -- these failures by those charged with providing clean and safe water have resulted in the lead poisoning of thousands of children in Jackson.
While lead exposure is dangerous for everyone, it is especially disastrous for children, who can become chronically ill or suffer permanent developmental and cognitive deficits as a direct result of their exposure to lead contaminated water.
Litigation Against Mississippi & the City of Jackson
The Attorneys at Levy Konigsberg are spearheading the litigation and are ferociously determined to hold the City of Jackson, the State of Mississippi, and Trilogy Engineering Services LLC responsible for the widespread harm that they have caused.
The team is extremely motivated and finds it inexcusable that negligence and possible corruption have unjustly deprived the children of Jackson of a natural necessity for a healthy life – clean water.
Update on the Litigation: Federal Judge Protects Jackson Water Crisis Lawsuit

Reeves, of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi issued an order rejecting the City of Jackson’s and the State of Mississippi’s attempts to dismiss lawsuits filed by our firm.
