Re: Bethpage Lawsuit Signup Package (and Retainer Enclosed)
Dear Bethpage Property Owner:
The law firms Napoli Law PLLC and Imbesi Law P.C. have been retained by many Bethpage residents who were potentially exposed to harmful chemicals resulting from the disposal of toxic waste. You may have a property damage or potential personal injury claim.
The Bureau of Environmental Exposure Investigation warns that residents can have increased "amounts of PCBs in their body." It also advises residents to (I) minimize exposure with contaminated soil in yards, and (2) rinse off "children's toys that may have soil on them.”
Recent court documents revealed that certain areas of Bethpage, including the Bethpage Community Park, were used as toxic waste cooling and dumping grounds.
Soil tests conducted in 2014 and 2015 have confirmed the presence of various chemicals in the yards of Bethpage homes located near the Bethpage Community Park. To determine your rights with respect to these exposures and contamination, call (646) 380-9555 or visit www.BethpageLawsuit.com. Our law firms do not charge a legal fee unless you receive compensation.
There is a strict time limitation for filing an action for both property damage and personal injury claims. You may lose your opportunity to file or receive compensation if you fail to timely respond. If you have lived in or own a home in Bethpage, protect your family and your rights. Complete the enclosed documents or call 646-380-9555 and ask for Brittany.

A recent Comment on this story just came in to Freelance Investigations:
According to Grumman Inventor of the year (1992) Dr. Carmine Vasile (who worked at Grumman in Bethpage on varied projects) there are many people who worked side by side with Grumman workers that were subcontracted by Grumman and/or BNL and they should also be covered...His quote...
Since so many people lived and died near Grumman's off-site dumps like the Huntington Superfund Landfill and Brookhaven Landfill- they should also submit claims to expand the class.
LIPA and BNL (Brookhaven National Laboratory) should also be included as defendants because Radium-226/228, Hexavalent Chromium, PCBs, Beryllium and Arsenic, etc. have also been detected in soil and/or drinking water wells and monitoring wells. BNL supplied radioactive materials to Grumman on many classified projects. Waste from the LILCO's power plant near Grumman's Plant 2, 5, 14, 26 and the HQ building probably included Hexavalent Chromium and PCBs.
Hexavalent chromium compounds (including chromium trioxide, chromic acids, chromates, chlorochromates) are toxic and carcinogenic. For this reason, chromic acid oxidation is not used on an industrial scale except in the aerospace industry. (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromic_acid)
The EPA warns:
Some people who drink water containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) well in excess of the maximum contaminant level ( MCL ) for many years could experience changes in their skin, problems with their thymus gland, immune deficiencies, or reproductive or nervous system difficulties, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. http://water.epa.gov/drink/contaminants/basicinformation/polychlorinated-biphenyls.cfm)
Radium-226 and -228 were detected above their MCL in public and monitoring wells in Bethpage.
The SCWA has detected huge amounts of Radium-226 daughters in wells near Grumman's off-site dump in Northport & BNL. ( http://www.gfxtechnology.com/Radon.html )(Dr. Carmine Vasile Ph.D Electrophysics)
Governor was notified, but he continues to ignore the problem. (http://www.gfxtechnology.com/Cuomo.pdf and http://www.gfxtechnology.com/Cuomo2.pdf)
Many types of radioactive isotopes are used in the aerospace industry; probably supplied by BNL for the Apollo and other classified programs.
