Hausfeld recently settled a case in Kodaikanal India on behalf of 500 former workers of a thermometer factory who had been living with the adverse health effects of mercury contamination.

The company they worked for had consistently failed to protect them from harm.

The workers had tried to get justice for 15 years through the Madras courts - without success - and it wasn’t until we issued proceedings against the British parent company in the High Court, that the matter settled within 11 months.
