Description – Anvil is an insecticide used in the eradication of disease-bearing mosquitoes in marshes, swamps, and other recreational and residential sites. Anvil has been proven to be particularly useful in the fight against the West Nile virus. Anvil is sprayed onto large areas where mosquitoes are known to congregate, which can include children’s play areas and schools. Exposure to Anvil can occur through open windows and doors, and air conditioners when spraying occurs.
Risks – Some side effects from Anvil exposure can include an increased risk of respiratory problems for children who suffer from asthma and other respiratory-related ailments. There are also concerns that Anvil exposure could lead to short and long term respiratory problems, immune and nervous system disruption, cancer, and reproductive and learning disorders.
If you believe you or your child has become ill because of Anvil exposure you should consider hiring a personal injury attorney. An experienced class action attorney can help you determine who is responsible for your exposure to Anvil and get proper compensation for your injuries.
