Expert Witness Services involving TCE Contamination in Groundwater

Expert Witness Services involving TCE Contamination in Groundwater 1

First Environment assisted a client with its defense against a toxic tort lawsuit involving more than 900 plaintiffs concerning residual groundwater contamination as a result of electronic component manufacturing. We worked closely with national counsel on strategies for defending the lawsuits through review of thousands of historic documents on the standard of care for the use and management of chlorinated solvents during the plant’s operational years. As part of the scope of services, First Environment assisted in establishing a negligence standard for waste handling and management at the site.
