Were you or someone you love involved in humanitarian aid to Japan after the earthquake and tsunami of March 2011? Many service members involved in Operation Tomodachi were exposed to high levels of radiation stemming from the disaster at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant, owned and operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). It is possible that up to 75,000 U.S. citizens were affected by radiation during this time, even after TEPCO deemed conditions safe. As a result of participating in the mission, you may have suffered severe illnesses including blindness, thyroid cancer, leukemia and brain tumors. Your children may have also been affected or could be at risk.
If you or someone you know may have been exposed, please contact us immediately to discuss how we can help. Our team of attorneys represent Sailors and their families in a lawsuit filed against TEPCO and other defendants. We’re committed to holding the responsible parties accountable for the harm their negligence has caused, and to ensure you are compensated for the injuries you have suffered.
John Edwards and Cate Edwards of Edwards Kirby, Charles A. Bonner and A. Cabral Bonner of Bonner & Bonner Attorneys, and Paul C. Garner of Garner Law have joined forces to collaborate on this case. We have filed the only lawsuit in the United States on behalf of the service members involved in disaster relief efforts at Fukushima for injuries sustained due to the radiation.
Together, we are seeking justice for you. If you were aboard the USS Reagan or the other Navy vessels, including the Essex, Washington, Prebble, Germantown, that responded to the earthquake and tsunami near Fukushima, contact us today so we can help you.
