Our lawyers are handling Similac and Enfamil infant formula lawsuits for families whose premature babies suffered or died from necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) after taking one of these formulas.

Medical research links cow milk-based infant formulas such as Similac and Enfamil to a dangerous neonatal medical condition known as necrotizing enterocolitis.  These NEC formula lawsuits make a lot of allegations.  But at the core of it, are saying – The makers of these formulas knew of the risk of NEC and did nothing to warn families and give them a choice.

If your premature baby was diagnosed with NEC after being given Similac or Enfamil formula, you may be able to bring a product liability lawsuit against the formula company and receive financial compensation for your loss.

This post speculates about Zantac lawsuit settlement amounts.  Yes, it is impossible to know what the average compensation payout might be in the Zantac litigation at this stage.

But projecting settlement amounts is what stock analysts and shareholders for Sanofi-Aventis, Boehringer Ingelheim, Pfizer, and GlaxoSmithKline are already doing and baking those costs into the stock price.  Plaintiffs’ Zantac lawyers can do this as well.

So this post will look at the settlement amounts a Zantac lawsuit might fetch based on comparisons to other mass tort settlements involving cancer.

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 that is specifically used to sanitize the recalled CPAP devices.

So far around a dozen lawsuits have been filed against SoClean alleging that that company falsely marketed that their product was “safe” and “healthy” to use for sanitizing CPAP machines and other breathing devices.

According to the lawsuits, SoClean’s product was not safe because it omits harmful levels of ozone gas which exceeded the maximum safe limits set by the FDA.

Right now, there are thousands of lawsuits pending in courts across the country related to defective hernia mesh implants. The plaintiffs in these lawsuits are individuals who had a defective hernia mesh implanted during surgery causing them to suffer serious post-surgical complications and injuries.

The hernia mesh lawsuits involve multiple hernia mesh products made by 3 medical device companies who are now defendants in the litigation: Ethicon (a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary), C.R. Bard (now part of Beckton Dickinson), and Atrium Medical Corp. The alleged defects and the product liability claims being asserted against all these defendants are similar enough to talk about them collectively.

Medical device company C.R. Bard Inc. is currently defending 15,000 hernia mesh lawsuits alleging that its mesh devices were defective and resulted in injuries and complications for thousands of hernia surgery patients.

January 10, 2022 Mesh Lawsuit Update

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 could see global settlements in two or maybe three major mass tort MDLs, including the biggest of them all, the 3M Earplugs MDL.

Let’s talk about what we can expect in 2022 in the mass tort class action lawsuits with the highest predicted settlement payouts.

Product liability lawsuits are being filed around the country claiming that the popular baby formula, Enfamil, has caused premature babies to develop a serious gastrointestinal infection called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Our national mass tort firm is currently seeking potential Enfamil lawsuits against the formula manufacturer based on its failure to warn about the risks of NEC.  If you qualify for an infant formula NEC lawsuit and are successful, you could receive significant financial compensation.

Enfamil Increases the Risk of NEC in Premature Babies

Incline sleepers for infants, such as the Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play, put infants at risk of harm, including Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID).

If your baby was died or was seriously injured in an inclined sleep you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit and get financial compensation. Miller & Zois is currently accepting inclined sleeper cases from victims.

Dangers of Inclined Sleepers for Babies

This is the latest update on the Taxotere class action (MDL) lawsuits as of December 17, 2021.

The second bellwether Taxotere trial in the Taxotere lawsuits started in New Orleans earlier this month.  We hoped for a different outcome.  The first Taxetere trial was a verdict for Sanofi in 2019. We were hoping this trial will turn out different and the settlement value of these Taxotere lawsuits will increase.
