New evidence has established that exposure to the chemicals in hair relaxer or hair straightener products can cause uterine cancer and other conditions resulting in a hysterectomy. Lawsuits are now being filed against cosmetic companies that manufacture hair relaxers.  A hair relaxer class action lawsuit could come as early as this week.  Our lawyers are currently seeking hair relaxer hysterectomy cases.

This post will look at who might qualify to bring a hair relaxer hysterectomy lawsuit and the potential settlement value of these cases.

History of Hair Relaxers

Paraquat is a heavy-duty herbicide that has been widely used in commercial farming in the U.S. for decades. Recent scientific research has shown that chronic exposure to Paraquat can significantly increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. The emergence of this evidence has led to thousands of former farmers filing Paraquat lawsuits alleging that their occupational exposure to the herbicide caused them to develop Parkinson’s disease.

The Paraquat product liability lawsuits have been consolidated into a class action MDL that has been ongoing for the last 2 years. In this post, we will look back at how the Paraquat litigation unfolded, what the current status of this ongoing mass tort is, and what to expect from the Paraquat litigation in 2023.

Paraquat Linked to Parkinson’s Disease

Thousands of hernia mesh injury lawsuits have been filed across the country alleging that design defects in various mesh products caused post-surgical complications resulting in significant injuries.

Our law firm handles CPAP sleep apnea class action lawsuits for injuries from the recalled Philips CPAP machine.

The Philips recall covered an estimated 3.5 million sleep apnea devices. There is now a CPAP class action lawsuit with thousands of plaintiffs consolidated into a Multi-District-Litigation (MDL).  So every CPAP lawsuit in federal court – filed in New York, California, Texas, or wherever – is consolidated in federal court in Pennsylvania.

In this post, we will take a closer look at the recall, the MDL class action, and the side effects of these CPAP machines.  Victims also want to know what our lawyers think CPAP lawsuit settlement amounts might look like.  So we provide below educated speculation of what settlement payouts could be for a CPAP lawsuit.

In 2021, Philips recalled millions of CPAP and BiPAP breathing devices. The recall came after it was discovered that foam used in the devices was degrading and releasing toxic, carcinogenic chemicals in the user’s airways. Following the recall, thousands of CPAP users filed lawsuits (or registered claims with Philips) alleging that exposure to the toxic foam particles caused severe injuries such as cancer.

The CPAP recall lawsuits were consolidated into a class action MDL which could eventually be resolved in a global settlement with Philips. In this post, we will look back at how the Philips CPAP litigation has unfolded and discuss the latest developments in this ongoing mass tort.

Millions of CPAP Devices are Recalled
