Our lawyers provide some excellent graphs and charts of how these lawsuits are going that we have updated in September 2023 to reflect the latest 3M verdict, failed effort by 3M to hide behind a bankruptcy court, and new settlement talks in 2023 that have yielded a global settlement.

IVC filters have been linked to an increased risk of fracture which can cause serious injury or death.  Our law firm is focused on Cordis and Cook IVC filter cases.

The IVC filter lawsuits have been going on for a long time, too long.  Our lawyers frequently get calls from people who are frustrated that their lawyer has “done nothing” to advance their case toward settlement.

This page is about Xelijanz lawsuits. Our lawyers are handling Xelijanz side effects lawsuits in all 50 states.  Lawsuits allege this drug comes with the risk of serious cardiac and other side effects. This was confirmed by the FDA in September 2021.

Xeljanz is a popular medication that is prescribed to treat patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ulcerative colitis. Xeljanz is the brand name for the drug Tofacitinib, which works by suppressing the patient’s immune system to help reduce inflammation in the body. Since its original release in 2012, this medication has exploded in popularity because of its placement of ads on television and in magazines.

June 30, 2023 Update: We are not aware of any new Xeljanz lawsuits that were filed in the last year.  This litigation does not appear to have legs.

The CPAP recall lawsuits against Philips have spawned a new group of related satellite lawsuits against SoClean, Inc. SoClean is a company that makes a product specifically used to sanitize the recalled CPAP devices.

Lawsuits have been filed against SoClean alleging that the company falsely marketed their product as “safe” and “healthy” for sanitizing CPAP machines and other breathing devices.

According to the lawsuits, SoClean’s product was unsafe because it omits harmful levels of ozone gas, which exceeded the maximum safe limits set by the FDA.

The biggest and latest trend that teenagers are turning to today is the new activity known as “juuling”. Teenagers are beginning to “juul” just about anywhere, whether it be at school, at work, on the street, or in their own home.

Juul is a company that manufactures a highly potent and discrete e-cigarette device, often advertised as a “safer alternative” to smoking. This trend, however, is turning out to be anything but safe and doctors worried about public health are about to lose their minds.  And the number of Juul lawsuits are growing by the day.

JUUL Lawsuit Update April 2023

TriStar electric pressure cookers have a design flaw that sometimes allows the device to pressurize without the locked lid. This defect causes the lid to explode when opened and projects scalding hot liquids over anyone nearby.

Users have suffered severe burns and facial disfigurement due to the lid defect.  These injuries are awful to deal with and they did not have to happen.

Our firm is seeking new product liability cases from anyone seriously injured by a faulty TriStar pressure cooker device. Users who suffered burns or other injuries from their TriStar instant pressure cooker may be entitled to financial compensation.

This is the latest update on the Taxotere class action (MDL) lawsuits as of February 2023.

Where are we now in the Taxotere hair loss lawsuits?  There have been two bellwether trials.  One before the pandemic in 2019 and one last year.  Both have ended in a defeat for plaintiffs.

So things are not good with the Taxotere lawsuits at this stage.  Do some mass tort lawsuits begin with losses and the tide turns and plaintiffs start winning and the defendant offers fair settlement amounts?  Yes.  100%.  But let’s not pretend there are many silver linings when you lose two lawsuits in a row.

This page is about the AFFF/PFAS lawsuit. Our lawyers are handling firefighting foam lawsuits throughout the United States.

AFFF lawsuits are based on studies showing that Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are linked to severe adverse health effects, particularly various cancers. This is a public health concern, because of how prevalent PFAS are in both manufactured products and the environment.

zoloft birth defects

Zoloft birth defect lawsuits… do you have a potential claim?

Zoloft has been associated with an increased risk of birth defects in infants whose mothers took Zoloft during pregnancy. These Zoloft birth defects run the gambit of minor problems to life-threatening problems that could lead to permanent injury or death.  As of May 5, 2014, there have been over 420 lawsuits filed.  By 2018, virtually all of these cases have been dismissed.

An Overview of the Association Between Zoloft and Birth Defects

Over the last 10 years, SSRI’s like Zoloft have been accused by plaintiffs’ lawyers of causing everything from Akathisia to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. I’m making up the latter, but you get the idea. Zoloft has been a controversial drug with a lawsuit target on its back. Some of these allegations have stuck, others have been thoroughly dismissed, and some we still just don’t know. The evidence of an association between Zoloft and birth defects, however, has been growing at an accelerated rate.

Zoloft (Sertraline) is one of the most prescribed drugs in the world for the treatment of various problems. It belongs to a class of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It is used to treat several conditions, including depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) social anxiety disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Sertraline works by increasing the amounts of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance.

Back in July 2006, the FDA issued an alert after a study reported that infants born to mothers who took SSRIs after the 20th week of pregnancy were 6 times more likely to have persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) than infants who were born to mothers who did not take antidepressants during their pregnancy. PPHN causes newborns to have increased pressure in the blood vessels in their lungs. As a result, they cannot get enough oxygen into their bloodstream. The risk of a woman having a child with PPHN in the general population is about 1 to 2 infants per 1000 live births.

There is a lot of confusion out there about Mirena lawsuits.  Women are bewildered because there were so many lawyers in recent years who are looking to bring a Mirena lawsuit.  There are still  Mirena lawsuit advertisements still up in 2023.  Yet they cannot find a lawyer for their case.

  • In 2023, the Paragard IUD lawsuits are the latest IUD that is getting hit with new class action suits that will hopefully be more viable for victims than Mirena

Imirena iud lawsuit updatef you are frustrated, I completely understand.  Let me try to explain because there are not a lot of good explanations out there online.

When these lawsuits began, plaintiffs’ lawyers filed thousands of Mirena lawsuits.  The focus of the litigation was:

  1. What Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals knew about the risks associated with IUDs in general and, specifically, with Mirena?
  2. Why didn’t the company do a better job of communicating the risks of uterine perforation and migration?
  3. What Bayer tried to do to make its IUD as safe as possible?
  4. Were profits the motive to avoid making the warning clearer?
