Water is an essential part of life, it’s something we all need. When you use the tap water in your home, you should have some level of confidence that that water is safe for you to drink and cook with. However, that hasn’t always been the case in some parts of Alabama. The Tennessee River in Decatur, AL has been exposed to many harmful chemicals for the last several decades. When digested, the chemicals in the drinking water can lead to the contraction of several very dangerous diseases.

At Gathings Law we are fighting for your well-being and for justice for the people hurt by the contaminated drinking water. We are currently reviewing cases related to kidney cancer, testicular cancer, and thyroid problems as a result of contaminated drinking water from the Tennessee River. If your water comes from the West Morgan East Lawrence Water Supply and you’ve been diagnosed with any of these diseases, give Gathings Law a call. We’re to help you.
