"So much more money than we expected"
Recovered Over $500 million on Behalf of Our Clients
One of the most challenging, yet rewarding, areas of litigation involves helping people who have been harmed by exposure to dangerous chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs. Some corporations show little regard for the health and well-being of people who suffer from the consequences of exposure to these toxins. Korein Tillery has a long history in this area of the law, and we have developed a winning strategy that has proven to be extremely effective. That strategy includes becoming immersed in the science and retaining the world’s leading scientific experts.
Notable Wins for Our Clients
Recently, we won substantial awards for hundreds of clients who had developed Parkinson’s disease from their exposure to pesticide products. We also represented over a thousand community water systems that deliver water to millions of people across the United States. Pesticide manufacturers paid over $100 million to remove harmful chemicals from public water sources.
Korein Tillery filed suit against SmithKline Beecham alleging the company marketed Paxil® and Paxil CRTM to children and adolescents despite having actual knowledge that these drugs exposed children and adolescents to dangerous side effects while failing to treat their symptoms. We obtained a settlement that established a $63.8 million fund for our plaintiffs.
We represented municipalities across the nation whose water supply was contaminated by the gasoline additive MTBE that leaked from underground storage tanks. Our team fought for justice and compensation for affected communities.
We achieved a substantial confidential settlement for the residents of a small town in Southern Illinois for personal injury and property damage claims arising from contamination by a mining and processing plant.
