Family sue Southern California Gas, Sempra for gas leak
The Katz family of Porter Ranch in Los Angeles, California has recently filed a lawsuit against Los Angeles-based Southern California Gas Company and San Diego-based Sempra Energy in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging that a leak caused by one of their tanks has resulted in health problems for their family.
According to the lawsuit, the entire family is experiencing severe health problems due to the gas leak, with two-year-old Ava suffering some seizures and having to spend four nights in an intensive care unit of a hospital for severe respiratory problems even though she had no pre-existing conditions that could have triggered such an affliction.
Ava has been described as “listless, suffering from persistent rashes, and painful nausea” allegedly due to the leak. The family’s two dogs were reportedly sick as well.
