BRONX, N.Y., June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Legionnaires disease Lawyer Jory Lange and prominent New York attorney Scott Harford have filed the first Legionnaires disease lawsuit in the Bronx Legionnaires Outbreak.  At least 30 people have gotten Legionnaires disease in this outbreak, 28 of whom were hospitalized. Tragically, two people have died. The health department has linked the Jerome Avenue Residences at 1325 Jerome Avenue to the outbreak. 

The Complaint alleges that victims developed Legionnaires' disease after breathing water vapors contaminated with dangerous legionella pathogen.  "The fact that invisible water vapor from a cooling tower can carry deadly pathogens like Legionella, and can cause so many hospitalizations, is alarming," said attorney Jory Lange. Attorney Scott Harford added, "this is particularly concerning as Legionnaire's disease cases are on the rise, especially in New York."

About the 2022 Bronx Legionnaires Outbreak

The NY Health Department analyzed sputum samples from patients and water samples from the cooling towers in the investigation area. These analyses showed the same strain of legionella bacteria found in one of the clinical specimens matched a cooling tower at the Jerome Avenue Residences.
