Accidental discharges of ammonia and methylamines from a plant in Pace, Florida are blamed for several recent deaths and hundreds of injuries. Three lawsuits blame Air Products and Chemicals Inc. for the release of the chemicals. The plaintiffs claim that they have trouble breathing, suffer from headaches, sinus problems, fatigue and a variety of other ailments. Company officials claim that the releases of ammonia and methylamines were not concentrated enough to cause any permanent injuries.

Ammonia is an irritant which can burn the eyes, lungs and throat when inhaled. Methylamines can cause throat irritation, nausea, headaches, coughing and chest tightness. Exposure to high levels of either of these chemicals can cause death.

See your doctor if you live in Pace and you have experienced serious health problems. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
