Residents of the Lehigh Valley in southeastern Pennsylvania may have been subjected to poisonous ethylene oxide emissions that can cause cancer.
Ethylene oxide, used at the B. Braun plant in Allentown to sterilize medical equipment, is widely recognized by health experts as a human carcinogen. For decades, the plant has released ethylene oxide into the local atmosphere, exposing residents to high levels of the cancer-causing gas. Some Lehigh Valley residents are now suing B. Braun, claiming that the company’s emissions caused them to develop cancer.
Morgan & Morgan is filing ethylene oxide exposure lawsuits on behalf of plant workers and nearby residents who have been diagnosed with cancer. If you live or work in the vicinity of the B. Braun Allentown plant and have a confirmed cancer diagnosis, you may qualify for a lawsuit. Contact us for a free, no-obligation case review.
