What Are Polychlorinated Biphenyls?

PCBs, once prevalent in industrial applications, pose severe health risks. Despite their ban in 1979, structures predating this era, like Poe Hall, may still harbor these carcinogenic chemicals.

Recent findings by NC Newsline, under Public Records law, unveiled significant PCB contamination within Poe Hall, surpassing EPA standards by up to 38 times. Reports describe unsettling instances of black liquid seepage, raising concerns over potential exposure.

Health Risks and Premises Liability

Prolonged exposure to PCBs can result in various health complications, including cancer and reproductive issues. The alarming rise in cancer cases among Poe Hall occupants underscores the urgency for legal action.

Premises liability holds property owners accountable for maintaining safe environments. Negligent management and disregard for safety protocols could form the basis of legal recourse for affected individuals.

Partnering with an experienced toxic chemicals lawyer is crucial for pursuing justice. Our team at Bell Legal Group is committed to investigating your case, identifying liable parties, and advocating for your rights.
