Eight U.S. Navy sailors sue Japanese company, Tokyo Electric Power Co. The company’s nuclear reactor melted down in 2011 earthquake.
Sailors on USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier were exposed to the radiation in December 2012 which was taking part in humanitarian missions near Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant of Tokyo Electric Power Co.
As per the complaint fired by sailors, “they endure life time of radiation suffering and poisoning.”
Sailors sued company for $100 million fund for future medical charges, $10 million for damages and $30 million for punitive damage.
In the complaint their lawyer also wrote that the company officials had provided “false sense of safety” in the radiation prone areas because of which they operated in that area and got themselves exposed. In future possibly this will cause some medical problem to them.
Power utility officials said they received the notice and will give response after researching it.Tags: exposed to nuclear radiations, Fukushima Dai-Ichi, radiations leak, Tokyo Electric Power Co, U.S. Navy sailors sue Japanese company for $140 million
