Our law firm handles 3M earplug lawsuits throughout the country. This page provides the latest news and updates on the 3M class action lawsuit for victims, including the latest big verdict in

There is some interesting perspective offered in the comments below from soldiers who are plaintiffs in the 3M earplug lawsuits.  Our lawyers also provide some good graphs and charts of how these lawsuits are going that we have updated in May 2022 to reflect the latest 3M verdict.

We summarize where we are in this litigation overview of the 3M litigation today.  You can also find a deeper summary of the recent Vaughn verdict.

After a pandemic-induced quiet year in 2020, last year saw a lot of action on the mass tort front. In 2021, we saw $11 billion in Roundup settlements and over a dozen bellwether test trials in various MDL class action lawsuits.

It appears 2022 will be a very eventful year for mass torts. We have already seen important verdicts in the hernia mesh and 3M earplug class actions.

I started this post in January but revised it in May 2022 to keep everyone caught up on these product liability lawsuits.  We could see global settlements in two or maybe three major mass tort MDLs, including the biggest of them all, the 3M Earplugs MDL.

Over one-thousand women have filed a Paragard IUD lawsuit claiming that they were injured when a design defect in the popular IUD caused it to fracture during removal and leave foreign objects inside their bodies.

The Paragard lawsuits in the federal courts have been consolidated into a new Paragard MDL in the Northern District of Georgia. The crux of the class action Paragard suit is that the device is prone to break inside a woman’s body because the IUD is not sufficiently flexible.

In this post, we give a 2022 Paragard lawsuit update. Our lawyers also speculate on how much a Paragard lawsuit might be worth if the litigation is resolved in a global settlement with the manufacturers.

Our lawyers are helping victims file a CPAP lawsuit who have cancer, respiratory complications, or other injuries from their defective CPAP that was subject to a recall.

A rapidly growing number of CPAP machine lawsuits have been filed since Philips recalled millions of CPAP devices used for sleep apnea after discovering that users were inhaling toxic foam particles. Many more CPAP recall lawsuits have been filed against Philips and have been consolidated into the CPAP class-action MDL.

This post will look at the Philips recall lawsuits and the types of health conditions or injuries that are potentially linked to the recalled Philips CPAP machines. We will also review settlements and verdicts in prior CPAP-related lawsuits.

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 that have shown that Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are linked to serious 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.

Our lawyers are handling Elmiron macular eye injury lawsuits in all 50 states alleging that victims’ macular degeneration was caused by the use of the drug for interstitial cystitis.

Elmiron is the brand name for pentosan polysulfate sodium, a prescription drug that is used by millions to treat a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis (IC).

In 2018, however, medical researchers discovered that prolonged use of Elmiron can cause some users to develop a new eye disease called pigmentary maculopathy which can result in vision impairment and blindness. Pigmentary maculopathy is only known to be caused by long-term use of pentosan polysulfate sodium.

The talcum powder lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson have been going on for years. The lawsuits allege that prolonged use of talcum powder (or “talc”), which is the active ingredient in products such as Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, can cause ovarian cancer in some women. This page provides a J&J talc power litigation update.

May 2022 Update:

Juries have found that J&J should not be selling talc products because they cause cancer.  Not every jury.  But J&J the baby powder litigation has cost J&J almost a billion dollars in legal fees and billions more in payouts via settlements and verdicts in baby powder lawsuits (some still on appeal).  So maybe it is time to stop selling this stuff elsewhere in the world to preserve future profits and save lives?

Similac recall lawsuits are being filed around the country after Abbott Laboratories announced in February a recall of all Similac, Alimentum, and EleCare powdered infant formula products manufactured at the company’s plant in Sturgis, Michigan. Similac PM 60/40 has now also been recalled after a baby exposed to this powdered baby formula died.

Our lawyers are pursuing Similac recall lawsuits in all 50 states.  When the Similac recall was announced, our attorneys were under the impression there would be a handful of serious injury and wrongful death cases from this recall. We were wrong. Our law firm has received hundreds of calls, many of which are from parents whose child has suffered serious injury or death from food poisoning from Similac.
