March 29, 2016 (Flint, Michigan) Hertz Schram PC has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Flint's children who were poisoned by drinking and bathing in its tap water.
This class action is unique in that it seeks monetary damages for all children in Flint, ages 17 and under, who consumed the lead contaminated water and suffered brain damage as a result.
Medical experts and the literature are clear that there is no safe level of lead exposure and any child who consumes lead suffers brain damage at the time of consumption. This damage is permanent and without cure.
"The officials involved in causing this tragedy have been so busy pointing fingers that they have neglected to address the needs of Flint's children," explains Elizabeth Thomson, Hertz Schram Litigation partner. "The damage caused by the Flint Water crisis will have a lifelong impact on these kids and their families. We have put all the officials from the top down who condemned Flint's children to lives that that will require considerable services and support on notice that they will be held accountable."
