RESOLVED: Chemical Spill in Beach Park, Illinois


The hazardous chemical spill occurred in Beach Park, Illinois in the early morning hours of April 25, 2019, when a farmer operating a farm tractor pulling a pair of two-ton tanks containing anhydrous ammonia allowed the chemical to leak out onto an intersection in Beach Park from a valve hooked to the tanks. A cloud of toxic gas took over the surrounding area making it extremely difficult for people to see and breathe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, anhydrous ammonia is a colorless gas that can cause breathing difficulties, burns, blisters and is fatal if breathed in high concentrations. More than 160 first responders were on the scene. Ultimately, dozens of residents, passers-by, and first responders were sickened by the chemicals and have filed lawsuits related to the event.

Romanucci & Blandin Partner David A. Neiman is the Lead Counsel in this mass tort case.
