Milberg LLP is actively investigating the link between “crumb rubber” used as infill in artificial turf or synthetic turf infill and various health problems.

Crumb rubber is made from recycled car tires and used to fill the space between blades of artificial grass, which in theory reduces the risk of certain types of orthopedic injury.  However, recent studies have called into question the long term effects of exposure to crumb rubber and the harmful chemicals it is known to contain.

Numerous national and local news reports have highlighted potential dangers, and there is growing concern that athletes, particularly soccer and lacrosse goalies, are at heightened risk from the constant exposure associated with their training.

Additionally, cities, municipalities, and school districts across the country have been forced to re-evaluate their decisions about artificial turf.

Milberg LLP is a nationally recognized leader in protecting the rights of consumers, including those harmed in complex product liability and mass torts matters.  Milberg partner Ariana Tadler is a nationally recognized leader of the plaintiffs’ bar.  Ms. Tadler has over 20 years of experience litigating and managing the full spectrum of complex and high profile cases on behalf of consumers and is a leading authority and pioneer in the field of electronic discovery.

Finally, Ms. Tadler was a State Champion lacrosse goalie while at Manhasset High School, played collegiately at Hamilton College, and in 2008 was inducted into the Manhasset Lacrosse Hall of Fame.  She has said: “My history as an athlete makes me particularly interested in protecting fellow athletes who may have been harmed by Crumb Rubber.”
