PPS Lead Class Action

August 4, 2016  |  General  |  Share

ti_graphics_lead-effects-on-childrenPortland area children have been exposed to the neurotoxin, lead, as a result of Portland Public School’s failure to test its drinking water in accordance with federal law. At this point, PPS has admitted that it hadn’t tested for lead in the drinking
water, district-wide, since the summer of 2001 (15 years ago). We also know that despite 47 sites testing high for lead in 2010-2012 and district officials knowing about the problem, this was not disclosed to parents until 2016. Children can have long term negative health consequences as a result of lead exposure, including neurological, neuromuscular, gastrointestinal, skeletal, dental, renal, cardiovascular, immune system, and reproductive system damage.

It is as a result of these facts, that Dr. Aaron DeShaw, Esq., P.C. is now investigating PPS’ exposure of Portland area children to lead, in conjunction with some of the most prestigious class action firms in the United States.  We anticipate this will lead to a PPS lead contamination class action.  This is of particular interest to Dr. DeShaw, who has children in school in the PPS district, and who as a board member of the Brain Injury Alliance of Oregon, works toward preventing personal injuries resulting in brain damage.

If you are a parent with children in PPS, you may have a claim for money damages. The amount of each case is individual to the person, based on the type of loss sustained. Additionally, any lawsuit we file would demand that Portland Public Schools fix its lead problem immediately, and going forward.

Our law firm is offering a freeno-obligation review and evaluation of this case. If you are chosen as a “class representative” it would cost you nothing, and require minimal time. If we determine that you may have a claim for money damages, and you choose to serve as the class representative for the PPS children exposed to lead, you will not have to pay us any fees or costs unless we recover money damages for you. To be clear, if we do not recover money for you, you pay us nothing.

Please call us at (503) 227-1233, toll free at (866) 843-3476, or via our confidential online form to discuss this case. We look forward to hearing from you.
