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

In June, medical device company Philips issued a sweeping safety recall of its popular CPAP and BiPAP sleep apnea devices that millions of Americans use to sleep every night. The recalled devices contain a polyurethane sound abatement foam that can degrade and cause users to inhale foam particles that can cause respiratory damage and possibly cancer.

The Philips recall covered an estimated 3.5 million sleep apnea devices. There is now a new product liability mass tort with eventually thousands of plaintiffs consolidated into a Multi-District-Litigation (MDL) after a September 30, 2021, MDL panel hearing.  So all CPAP lawsuits in federal court are consolidated in federal court in Pennsylvania.

Our lawyers are representing victims looking to bring a Camp Lejeune lawsuit for injuries and deaths from toxic chemicals and water contamination on this Marine Corps base.

Our attorneys are excited that after many years of suffering and death, reasonable settlement payouts may finally be offered for a Camp Lejeune settlement. The legislation that Congress passed yesterday that President Biden will sign – hopefully, today – will allow victims to file a Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit.

This page provides the latest Camp Lejeune lawsuit news and updates, explains who is eligible for compensation, and projects settlement amounts in these toxic water contamination lawsuits.

Note: We have a 2022 update on the Zoloft lawsuits at the bottom of this post.  The rest of the post was written seven years ago in 2015 when there were high hopes for the class action Zoloft lawsuit. 

Depression treatment is essential.  This is especially true during pregnancy.  Untreated depression can have harmful effects on both the mother and the baby.  But we are learning more about the use of antidepressants and the increased risk of problems for the baby.

Zofran Safety Study in 2015

This study supports prior findings that women who use Zoloft during pregnancy are at an increased risk of giving birth to an infant with birth defects that could include severe heart or cranial malformations.

According to findings published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, the use of Zoloft may increase the risk of atrial and ventricular defects by more than 30%, and more than double the risk of craniosynostosis. (2022 Update: In fairness, this study has not been replicated and most experts believe Zoloft is safe during pregnancy in 2022.  That does not mean that it is but it is fair to say that most experts today believe Zoloft is safe for pregnant women.)

Our lawyers can help you bring a Valsartan cancer lawsuit in all 50 states.

Valsartan is a popular blood-pressure drug used by millions of people in the U.S. and sold under brand names Diofan and Exforge. But Valsartan was recalled after it was discovered that the drug was contaminated with dangerously high levels of a carcinogenic chemical called NDMA.

This has prompted thousands of Valsartan lawsuits by individuals who developed certain types of cancer after prolonged use of Valsartan.

The Zantac cancer lawsuits are heating up.  Discovery is moving forward surprisingly quickly given the pandemic. The first Zantac class action trial will be in October 2022.

Plaintiffs’ Zantac lawyers – like our law firm – are making one last push for new Zantac plaintiffs.  Our lawyers have signed up hundreds of plaintiffs for Zantac cancer lawsuits.

If you have cancer and were taking Zantac, don’t delay.  There is a statute of limitations for a Zantac lawsuit that creates a deadline to sue. (That deadline may have passed for a minority of victims.)  Call us today at 800-553-8082 or get a free online claim evaluation.

Injectafter lawsuits are starting to be filed around the country amid allegations that the iron supplement causes hypophosphatemia (HPP), leading to fatigue, muscle pain and weakness, and bone pain.

Infectafer Lawsuit Update – July 2022

A total of 13 Injectafer product liability lawsuits have been filed in federal courts so far in 2022. 12 of the 13 Injectafer lawsuits were filed in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and 1 of the cases was filed in the Middle District of Florida.

Our lawyers are handling Paraquat lawsuits in all 50 states.  This page is about projected settlement payouts or a viable Paraquat lawsuit.

People who have developed Parkinson’s disease from Paraquat want to better understand the range of settlement amounts they can expect in their Paraquat lawsuit.

It is early in the Paraquat litigation so settlement compensation payouts are speculative.  But we can look at other similar injuries to try to get a settlement range if plaintiffs’ lawyers are successful, as expected, in this litigation.

The third bellwether test trial in the massive 3M earplug lawsuits resulted in another solid victory for the plaintiffs.  Last week the jury in the U.S District Court for the Northern District of Florida awarded Army veteran Llyod Baker $1.7 million in total damages in his lawsuit against 3M.

Like thousands of other plaintiffs in the Combat Arms earplugs litigation, Baker claimed that he suffered hearing damage (tinnitus) during his time in the Army because 3M’s earplugs were defective and failed to protect him. Baker sought to hold 3M liable under a number of different product liability theories, including:

  • Strict Liability (design defect)

Paraquat is a chemical herbicide that has recently been linked to Parkinson’s disease. A growing number of lawsuits are being filed against the manufacturers of Paraquat by individuals who used or were exposed to the chemical and later diagnosed with Parkinson’s.  Call our Paraquat lawyers today for a free consultation if you have a claim at 800-553-8082.

So far enough Paraquat lawsuits have been filed that the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) is expected to create a new class action Paraquat MDL.

Meanwhile, however, one of the earliest Paraquat Parkinson’s lawsuits is going to trial in state court in Illinois. The case, Thomas Hoffman, et al. v. Syngenta Crop Protection LLC, et al., (Case No. 17-L-517), was originally filed back in 2017 in the 20th Judicial Circuit Court for St. Clair County, Illinois.
