Lead Victims Settlement
$94.6 Million Settlement for Lead Victims
In Doyle v. Fluor Corporation, Meyer v. Fluor Corporation and related litigation, GRG represented persons who suffered personal injuries and property owners who suffered damage to their property due to emission of toxins from a nearby lead smelter. After many years of hard-fought litigation, GRG was able to obtain $39.6 million for the personal injury victims and $55 million for property damage victims. The litigation is also noteworthy because it also was the first case in which the Missouri Supreme Court recognized a cause of action for medical monitoring that could be asserted by those exposed to harmful substances but who do not yet have personal injury.
