Case Study: Rocky Flats
An inside look at how Heffler overcame the obstacles associated with this complex environmental class action settlement.
This $375 million settlement was the result of 26 years of litigation. Heffler handled claims dating back to the 1990s for anyone who owned property in the area that was allegedly contaminated with plutonium, a hazardous radioactive substance which caused property values to decrease.
Heffler Claims Group's duties included notification, skip tracing for unlocated class members, claims filing assistance through a toll-free number, mail and internet correspondence, and claims review and analysis. In addition, Heffler took measures to educate the class about potentially misleading third party filing companies and their rights as class members.
