We Can Assist With Class Action and Mass Tort Lawsuits

Asbestos, Shower Talc, Baby Powder and Ovarian Cancer

The use of certain types of powder on the genitals has been linked to a 33-92% increase in the risk of ovarian cancer in women, as well as the development of mesothelioma. Johnson & Johnson (one of the largest manufacturers of baby powder, Shower to Shower, and other talc-based powders designed to be applied to genital areas) and other talcum-based product manufacturers were aware of the deadly risk of their talc-based products for at least 60 years (since 1957) and failed to act – or even warn consumers. Talc has been shown to migrate to the fallopian tubes, where it becomes embedded within the ovaries, forming cancerous tumors. Talc is also commonly cross-contaminated with asbestos, a leading cause of mesothelioma.

Faulty 3M Combat Arms Military Ear Plugs and Hearing Loss

The use of 3M Combat Arms Military ear plugs (version 2 CAEv2) has been linked to the development of chronic tinnitus and permanent hearing loss. The company has not denied the fact that these ear plugs failed to protect the hearing of hundreds of thousands who entrusted their hearing to these defective ear plugs.

Baby Rock-N-Play and Kids II Sleeper Deaths

Fisher Price, Mattel, and Kids II were aware that their Rock-N-Play Sleeper and inclined sleepers for babies created a situation that was causing the deaths of infants, yet failed to act in a timely manner. This negligence resulted in dozens of preventable deaths and untold anguish for families across the country. While the company has issued a recall and is offering refunds or vouchers for the purchase price of the Rock-N-Play Sleeper, this act is an insufficient and meaningless gesture for those who have lost a baby in this manner.

Dangerous Breast Implants, BIA ALCL, and Cancer

Breast augmentation patients fitted with textured breast implants may be at an increased risk of developing a specific type of cancer. Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA ALCL) develops within the scar capsule of the breast implant and has been associated with textured breast implants according to the US Food and Drug Administration. BIA ALCL has affected hundreds and killed nine so far. France, Canada, and Australia are already taking action on these implants. Various other cancers, arthritis, connective tissue disease, MS, and other illnesses have also been associated with these breast implants.
