Thomas Crumplar was quoted in an article recently published on Delawareonline.com, in which he expresses his intentions, as well as that of the rest of the legal team representing Millsboro area residents who have been affected by contaminated drinking water. “I hope it is now crystal clear to Mountaire and everyone in the community that our clients are not simply seeking compensation for their own injuries, but they are also going to do everything in their power to make sure no one in the community ever has to suffer in the same way as they have,” he says.
