Environmental contamination can have a profound impact on our health. SGT’s attorneys are at the forefront of litigating emerging environmental issues on behalf of New England communities.

SGT’s class action attorneys represent individuals whose health and property have been impacted by environmental contamination.

With increasing frequency, American communities are learning their water supplies and topsoil have been contaminated with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (“PFAS” or “forever chemicals”) or other carcinogens such as benzene. These contaminations can have a devastating impact on individuals’ lives, and it is essential that individuals are represented by counsel that knows how to respond.

SGT currently represents plaintiffs and a proposed class of over 300 residents of Westminster, Massachusetts whose drinking water and soil has been contaminated by toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) discharged from a composting site which dumped paper mill waste. SGT filed a class action on behalf of Westminster residents in August 2022 and has, since filing, monitored Defendants’ compliance with MassDEP directives regarding remediation efforts.
