At least three people have filed personal injury suits against three corporations after they allegedly suffered injuries due a flooring company placing a toxic outdoor floor sealant on an indoor floor.
According to the suits filed on March 24 in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court by Merri Bogard, Valerie Furlow, and Tallauah Todd, TIAH, the outdoor sealant used, can cause headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination, fatigue, memory loss, loss of intellectual ability, brain damage, lung damage, respiratory irritation, gastrointestinal irritation, and skin irritation.
The suit claims that Clark Properties knew of the health risks posed by the sealant, but hired Titan Contractors anyway on April 20, 2007 to apply concrete sealant to flooring belonging to Imperial Manufacturing Group, one of its tenants.
The plaintiffs, who worked at American Water Resources Company, which is adjacent to Imperial Manufacturing Group, say they had no knowledge of the sealant being applied to the concrete floor in the building next door.
The suit says that the plaintiffs were exposed to the toxic sealant while working on April 24, 2007.
The plaintiffs claim that they incurred medical costs, suffered great pain and discomfort, and lost great gains that they would have realized.
The plaintiffs each seek damages of $150,000 from the three-count suit against Clark Properties, Titan Contractors, and Alton Center Business Park.
