Collinsville Cancer Cases & Toxic Torts
In recent Oklahoma news, Collinsville has seen a string of cancer diagnoses that raised suspicions of healthcare and medical professionals in the region. Many of the cancer patients were high schoolers who lived within the same neighborhood, which seemed to establish a causational link behind the cancer development that occurred at an unusually young age. An investigation uncovered that Oologah, Owasso, and Collinsville shared waste and water retaining systems in such a way that it ineffectively removed decontaminates from the water beneath and used throughout Collinsville. There was also found to be an attempted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cleanup of the site, which was not entirely successful.
It is now believed that the people of Collinsville have been unknowingly exposed to hazardous substances, high levels of acidity, and high levels of chlorine. Richardson Richardson Boudreaux (RRB) and our Oklahoma trial lawyers are currently hearing cases from the people of Collinsville who have fallen chronically ill or been diagnosed with cancer that may be related to the town’s water retaining systems. Toxic torts filed for these individuals could potentially bring fair compensation for their undue suffering.

Other Forms of Dangerous Exposure
The people of Collinsville appear to have been exposure to dangerous substances simply for living in the town. This is sometimes called “in-home exposure” in toxic tort cases. Another common denominator in in-home exposure toxic torts is asbestos lining in homes that leads to mesothelioma, for instance.
Toxic torts can also be filed due to other types of hazardous exposure:
- Consumer exposure: A consumer may buy and use a dangerous product unknowingly, eventually developing an illness. For example, Monsanto RoundUp herbicide is subject to ongoing toxic tort claims after its active ingredient was determined to be a “likely carcinogen.”
- Occupational exposure: Many people are exposed to toxic chemicals and substances at work but never know it due to neglectful care and precautions taken by their employers.
- Pharmaceutical exposure: The consistent use of a pharmaceutical drug can lead to toxic exposure if it is found that the medicine can cause unexpected and dangerous side effects.
