Bethany Foster has a passion for helping people who don’t always have access to the legal system. As an attorney, Bethany is excited to be fighting for justice by taking on big corporations. “Bethany’s passion and dedication made her stand out to us at McDivitt,” says Chief Operating Officer David McDivitt, who is working closely with Bethany on a national class action lawsuit against the manufacturers of fire-fighting foam. Bethany is reading and analyzing thousands of documents as well as acting as a team lead over a group of reviewers.
There are many diseases associated with exposure to the chemicals in fire-fighting foam, including health complications that can arise during pregnancy. Bethany is specifically looking at pregnant women who suffer from hypertension and preeclampsia as a result of their exposure to contaminated water. “It is satisfying to do work that could potentially help thousands of clients that have been devastated by water contamination and the lack of responsibility of the big chemical companies,” says Bethany.
In addition to her work on the water contamination litigation, Bethany works in other areas of McDivitt Law Firm’s Mass Torts department, managing cases including nursing home liability, hernia-mesh, Roundup, and other defective products and drugs. This work also reflects her passion to pursue compensation for the people who rely on companies’ representations that their products are safe.
