Personal Injury Lawyers in Nashua, New Hampshire

Plaintiffs win Round 1

Textiles Coated, Inc. requested the court to dismiss certain claims in our case, and to delay the scheduling of the case. The court issued an order in our favor denying TCI’s request and the case will go forward. The court confirmed that the plaintiffs may go forward with their claims of nuisance, trespass, negligence and failure to warn. The damages we seek include additional water expense, loss of use and enjoyment, annoyance and discomfort and any reduction in property value. Significantly, and believed to be a case of first impression in New Hampshire, the court agreed with us that we can assert a claim for medical monitoring to cover the cost of tests and examinations in order to catch any disease at the earliest time possible. A copy of the order can be viewed here.

You may have read Saint-Gobain and the State of New Hampshire have entered into a “Consent Decree.” A Consent Decree is an agreement with the state to settle or resolve claims the state has against Saint-Gobain. As the NHDES representative stated at the public meeting announcing the agreement, the settlement is only for claims the State has against Saint-Gobain, and does not affect any property owner’s private claims against Saint-Gobain. For example, the agreement identifies the homes that Saint-Gobain will connect to water lines and the few that will be connected to point of use filters and ongoing testing and remediation of the contamination at Saint-Gobain. It does not address the cost of water, loss of use, the nuisance and trespass claims, effect on property values or medical monitoring. None of the claims in our case are reduced by the agreement. Here is a link to the Consent Decree.

Our case against Saint-Gobain has a current trial date of September, 2019. Beginning in June, the court will start the process of determining whether the case will go forward as a class action. We will continue to provide our clients updates on the progress of the case.
