Recommended Posts

FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii – More than a dozen people claiming they were injured by petroleum contamination in the Navy’s water system in Hawaii filed claims with the service Tuesday seeking compensation, their attorneys said in a news release that day.

The claims by 15 individuals, who allege a host of health issues as a result of the contamination, are a prerequisite to filing a lawsuit under the Federal Tort Claims Act in federal court, according to the release by Just Well Law of Austin, Texas, and Hosoda Law Group, of Honolulu, the firms representing them.
