Surgimesh is another type of hernia mesh implant made from polypropylene plastic that is similar in design to the hernia mesh devices that have generated thousands of product liability lawsuits in recent years (e.g., Ethicon Physiomesh, Atrium C-Qur, etc.).

A recently filed product liability lawsuit in New Mexico alleges that the Surgimesh has the same dangerous design flaws as the other polypropylene hernia mesh implants. This new Surgimesh lawsuit could potentially be the first of many and open a new front in the hernia mesh mass tort ligation.

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.

What Are PFAS? 

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are man-made chemicals found in everyday products such as food packaging, commercial household products, drinking water, and living organisms. They are not naturally occurring. Starting in the 1940s, they were initially used in stain and water-resistant fabrics, carpeting, paints, cleaning products, and fire-fighting foams. One of the most famous PFAS-based brands is Teflon, first developed in the late 1930s.

A growing number of product liability lawsuits are now being filed alleging that the popular baby formula, Similac, caused premature infants to develop a serious gastrointestinal infection called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).

Our national product liability and mass tort firm is seeking potential Similac lawsuits against the formula manufacturer, Abbott Laboratories Inc., for failure to warn about the risks of NEC associated with Similac. If you bring a successful baby formula NEC lawsuit you could receive significant financial compensation.  Our attorneys offer a free online consultation.

The case of Crawford v. Abbott Laboratories, Inc. is one of the most recent examples of an NEC infant formula lawsuit. The plaintiff, Candace Crawford, brought the case on behalf of her deceased infant ZaRiyah Crawford. The Complaint was filed against both Abbott Laboratories, Inc. and Mead Johnson Nutrition in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Baby ZaRiyah was born prematurely (34 weeks gestation age) at North Florida Regional Medical Center on December 2, 2019. ZaRiyah had a birthweight of just 3 pounds and 14 ounces, making rapid weight gain very important to her health. After her birth, ZaRiyah was sent to the NICU.

For the first 3 days at the NICU, Baby ZaRiyah was fed with her mother’s pumped breast milk combined with donor human breast milk. After these first 3 days, however, ZaRiyah was fed with a combination of human breast milk supplemented with Enfamil and Similac cow-milk based formulas.

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.

Procter & Gamble issued a recall of 30 dry conditioners and shampoos because these products may contain benzene, a cancer-causing chemical P&G recalled aerosol spray products will familiar names such as Aussie, Pantene, Herbal Essence, and Waterless. dry shampoo products from Old Spice and Hair Food.

The products were made by Proctor & Gamble and distributed nationwide through online sales like Amazon and through traditional retailers.

Is this a big deal or a little deal?  Is the Benzene risk real?  This post talks about the recall and what it means.

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.
