“Yesterday’s hazardous chemical spill in Beach Park was extremely frightening for our client who
left his home around 5:00 a.m. for work Thursday morning and began suffering from burning and
pain in his nose, throat and respiratory tract. Tightening and pain in his chest also caused him to
have difficulty breathing, and have left him hospitalized and undergoing treatment,” said Antonio M. Romanucci, Founding Partner at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC. “We have been hired to investigate
the harmful effects of this toxic exposure and to figure out exactly what caused this horrific event to
take place. If our investigation does in fact reveal negligence on anyone’s part that resulted in the
needless and unnecessary poisoning of area residents, we will then pursue a lawsuit.”

“We have already begun an investigation into what caused the spill, who the responsible parties
are and will be demanding full transparency from everyone possibly involved,” added Romanucci &
Blandin, LLC Senior Counsel, Joseph E. Kolar. “The residents of this community and throughout
Illinois deserve answers and solutions to ensure that something like this never happens again,” said
Bob Baizer, Senior Counsel at Romanucci & Blandin.
