Have you been affected by the putrid odor emanating from Carson, California? For weeks there has been a foul odor plaguing Carson residents coming from the Dominguez Channel. It is due, at least in part, to a toxic, colorless gas called hydrogen sufide coming from the buildup of decaying vegetation. County officials say they are unable to predict when the smell will dissipate. This horrid stench is causing headaches, nausea and other upper airway ailments. While there has been a state of emergency declared providing funds for air filters and hotel rooms, residents and those affected deserve more.
Kirtland & Packard LLP has a proven track record in similar cases. Kirtland & Packard LLP’s Michael Louis Kelly and Lindsey Bayman, as part of the elite Porter Ranch Trial Team, represented the interests of over 35,000 residents of Porter Ranch who suffered in the wake of the SoCalGas blowout. The trial team worked tirelessly for a just result for the residents of Porter Ranch and the other affected communities surrounding the Aliso Canyon facility. On September 27, 2021, SoCalGas and its parent, Sempra Energy, agreed to a settlement of $1.8 billion to be paid to the 35,717 residents harmed by the blowout.
