Residents of Carteret, New Jersey Receive $42 Million in a Class-Action Contamination Settlement

The Lanier Law Firm is pleased to announce that about a thousand Carteret property owners are receiving up to $17,500 each from the $42 million settlement of a 2017 class-action contamination lawsuit.

Plaintiffs in the case live and work near an abandoned waterfront smelting site that operated from 1903 to 1986. The smelter in Carteret, a borough of about 25,000 in Middlesex County, released contaminants such as lead and arsenic during that period.

“The team of lawyers who worked together to represent this neighborhood did an exceptional job and never let up,” said Lanier Law Firm managing attorney Alex Brown. “We are all pleased that we were able to get meaningful compensation for our clients.”
