Statute of Limitations Leaves Victims of Contamination High and Dry

NEW YORK, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Finding out that you're suffering from an injury or illness due to no fault of your own is bad enough. Discovering the injury or illness after the statute of limitations period has passed is worse. That is why it is important for victims to file claims as soon as they know when injuries are sustained so that they are able to put in a claim for compensation they deserve. This however, is difficult when an individual doesn't become aware of the injury until that statute has run out or passed.

This was the case for victims of contaminated water in Asheville, NC. In a devastating development earlier this week, a 7-2 court ruling in favor of an electronics company held that homeowners couldn't sue an electronics company that had allegedly contaminated their land. The case centered around a North Carolina law that established a "period of repose" for pursuing legal action in a pollution case. Because the 10-year period had passed homeowners on the contaminated property were prohibited from suing the company for damages. As such, it is important for victims to report any concerns around injuries and/or diseases that may be a result of contamination. Pegasus Legal Funding is a resource for victims who have a case, but don't have the financial means to wait until the resolution of a lawsuit.

"One of the biggest concerns in situations such as this is that these state statues serve as a means of depriving victims of their day in court. This is a travesty when victims are dealing with cases of diseases such as Cancer that can take years to develop," commented Robert Tansey of Pegasus Legal Funding. "It's imperative that victims fight back the minute they feel they've been affected by contamination. We're able to help victims with day-to-day living expenses until their case is successfully resolved."
