Delaware Mercury Investigation
We are investigating mercury exposure that may have taken place at the Occidental Chemical Plant in New Castle, Delaware. Employees, contractors, and their families may have been exposed to harmful levels of mercury throughout the facility’s history. If you or a loved one worked at the Occidental Chemical plant, we urge you to visit our project website for more information.
Often, symptoms may take months or years to develop. These symptoms are from continuous low-dose exposures to mercury over long periods of time, as are often the case during plant operations. However, symptoms can develop almost immediately from short-term high-dose exposures. These high-dose exposures most often occur during upset conditions at the plant.
