Camp Lejeune Birth Defect Lawsuits

In the 1980s it was discovered that the water supply at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps base in North Carolina was contaminated with toxic chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  It has long been known that VOCs can cause birth defects.

Yesterday, the FDA warned that “certain samples of sitagliptin” were found to contain a nitrosamine called NTTP (nitroso-STG-19).  NTP can cause cancer.  So there is a concern.

How serious is the concern?  We do not know yet. Our lawyers are not yet taking new Januvia cancer lawsuits.  But this is something to keep an eye on… because we do not know much yet.

Tests Show Sitagliptin Contains NTTP

Millions of families in the U.S. may have had drinking water that was contaminated with PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl) substances which are commonly known as “forever chemicals.” PFAS include perfluorooctane sulfonate (“PFOS”) and perfluorooctanoic acid (“PFOA”). These chemicals have been used for various industrial purposes for years, including use in firefighting foam products used to put out chemical fires.

The use of PFAS around the country has led to widespread contamination of groundwater. Exposure to PFAS in contaminated groundwater has been shown to cause cancer and other health conditions. If you have been diagnosed with cancer after being exposed to water contaminated with PFAS, you may be able to file a lawsuit and get financial compensation.

Our lawyers are helping victims who want to bring a Gardasil HVP vaccine lawsuit throughout the United States.

Gardasil is a vaccine intended to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) which can sometimes lead to cervical cancer in women. Gardasil was developed by the embattled pharmaceutical company Merck & Co.

Merck obtained FDA approval for Gardasil back in 2006 based on deceptive research and clinical trials which misrepresented the efficacy of the vaccine while concealing its safety risks and side effects. Merck then launched an aggressive and highly misleading marketing campaign to include millions of parents to vaccinate their pre-teen daughters with Gardasil.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is a special federal program that provides no-fault compensation to individuals that are injured by a vaccine. The VICP is often referred to as Vaccine Court and it offers people who are harmed by a vaccination an alternative compensation system outside of a traditional civil lawsuit.

Vaccine court and the VICP process are completely unfamiliar to most people and even most lawyers. In this post, we will explain the basics of vaccine court and getting compensation under the VICP.

NFL star quarterback Deshaun Watson is defending civil tort lawsuits filed by 22 women who allege that Watson sexually assaulted them during private massage sessions. After Harris County declined to pursue criminal charges against Watson, he was traded to the Cleveland Browns who promptly gave him a new fully guaranteed contract worth $230 million.

In the wake of the Watson trade and his new blockbuster contract, many people are wondering if he will opt to settle the civil lawsuits and how much that settlement might be. In this post, we will offer an analysis of the potential settlement value of the Deshaun Watson sexual assault lawsuits.

Our estimated settlement value for the Deshaun Watson civil lawsuits is between $1.5 to $2.5 million for each plaintiff for a total of $33-55 million. The basis for this estimated settlement amount is spelled out in this post.

Marines and employees at the Camp Lejeune military base in North Carolina were unknowingly exposed to carcinogenic chemicals in their drinking water for three decades spanning the 1950s to the 1980s.
