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.

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.

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. Our lawyers also estimate expected CPAP settlement amounts and review settlements and verdicts in prior CPAP-related lawsuits.

$289 Million Verdict Update

roundup lawsuitDuring a hearing on October 24th after the whopping $289 million verdict against Monsanto,  a California trial judge issued a ruling reducing the verdict.  This case, as you probably know if you are reading this, involved a man who was diagnosed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma a couple of years after using Roundup several times a day while on the job as a school groundskeeper.  The judge reduced what was previously a $289 million settlement to $49 million. They reduced the punitive damages to match the compensatory damages.

Our law firm is handling Tylenol and baby food autism lawsuits in all 50 states.

A report released last year revealed that many baby food brands contain alarmingly high levels of hazardous metals such as arsenic, lead, mercury.

This discovery has spawned a steady stream of consumer class-action lawsuits against various baby food manufacturers around the country. It may also lead to product liability lawsuits alleging that consumption of the contaminated foods caused neurologic damage.

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.
