Alabama Personal Injury
Chenault Hammond, P.C. filed the first Triana DDT litigation in 1979 on behalf of 39 commercial fisherman and their families. The case sought compensation for lost income and personal injury due to excessive DDT in the Tennessee River dumped by a DDT manufacturing plant over several years. Eventually joined by claimants from the town of Triana, the case resulted in a substantial global settlement in 1983.
