OUR PRODUCT LIABILITY LAWYERS CAN HELP

If you were a victim as a result of a defective product due to the negligence of the manufacturer, it’s important to understand your rights. Our product liability lawyers can help you handle and manage a matter of defective product cases:

  • Asbestos
    Asbestos is widely used in manufacturing and in many home and commercial products. Exposure to asbestos can cause diseases such as asbestosismalignant mesothelioma, and several kinds of cancer.
  • Benzene
    Exposure to benzene—one of the top 20 chemicals used in the United States—has been linked to acute myeloid leukemia, a fast-spreading cancer of the blood and bone marrow.
  • Chemical Hair Straightener
    Contact our lawyers today to find out how we can help if you or someone you love were diagnosed with uterine cancer after using chemical hair straighteners.
  • E-Cigarette Injury
    The lithium-ion batteries used to power electronic cigarettes, or “e-cigarettes,” can explode or catch fire at any time — causing serious and permanent injuries.
  • Endoscope Infections
    Endoscope devices called duodenoscopes are used to help remove blockages from the channels that drain a patient’s liver. But the devices feature a design that may be difficult or impossible to disinfect between uses, which may expose patients to antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.
  • Essure® Birth Control Implant Side Effects
    The Essure® birth control implant is marketed as an alternative to traditional “tube tying” surgeries. However, since its approval in 2002, the device has been linked to unintended pregnancies with complications, painful side effects requiring surgery to correct, and even death.
  • Forever Chemicals
    Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) has been widely used by firefighters, emergency response crews, and airport workers for decades to quickly put out fires and stop them from reigniting.
  • Hernia Mesh Lawsuits
    Certain models of hernia mesh — a surgical product used for hernia repair — have been linked to serious health complications, such as allergic reactions, bowel obstruction, renal failure, and more.
  • IVC Filters
    Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are implanted to help reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism, blood clots, and arterial blockages. But the devices can fracture and migrate to areas in the body that cannot be reached by surgeons.
  • JUUL
    JUUL is a popular brand of e-cigarettes marketed to young people. Because of their high nicotine content and easily inhaled vapor, JUUL devices can cause teenagers and young adults to suffer serious health problems, impaired brain development, and nicotine addiction.
  • Mesothelioma
    A fireproof and conductive natural insulator, asbestos is used in industrial applications, construction materials, and automotive parts. But inhalation of loose asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma, a deadly cancer that can take decades to develop.
  • Metal-on-Metal Hip Injuries
    Friction between moving components within metal-on-metal hip implant devices can cause severe pain and other conditions that require corrective surgery.
  • Military Earplug Hearing Loss
    A double-sided earplug model manufactured by 3M for the U.S. military features a defective design that puts service members and veterans at risk of permanent hearing loss and tinnitus.
  • Paragard IUD
    Women who receive Paragard IUDs may experience a variety of debilitating side effects, including heavy bleeding and infection, both immediately after implantation and weeks, months, or years later.
  • Paraquat
    A growing body of research has linked paraquat with Parkinson’s disease. Studies indicate that the dangerous pesticide could increase the risk of developing Parkinson’s by 200-600%.
  • Port Catheter
    Port catheters, also called port-a-caths or Totally Implantable Vascular Access Devices (TIVADs), are a type of medical device often used in chemotherapy and in other medical treatments that require patients to receive regular doses of intravenous medication, fluids, or transfusions.
  • Roundup® Weed Killer Cancer
    A popular herbicide used in homes and farms nationwide, Roundup Weed Killer contains glyphosate, a chemical that may be linked to the development of certain cancers, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • St. Jude Pacemaker Recall
    Pacemakers are powered by batteries and are supposed to give patients ample warning of battery failure. However, some pacemakers manufactured by St. Jude Medical Inc. have been reported to short circuit, leaving patients with little time to seek treatment or face life-threatening health complications.
  • Stryker® Hip Implant Lawsuits
    A defective component has been reported in 14 of Styker® Corporation’s hip replacement products, and hundreds of thousands of patients may be at risk. Our legal team has experience investigating defective medical device cases, and we’re ready to help determine your rights to compensation.
  • Surgical Staples Lawsuits
    Surgical staplers and staples are often used to close incisions and to reconnect parts of organs in surgery, but defective devices and user error can result in severe complications for patients, including bleeding, sepsis, organ damage, and death.
  • Talc Ovarian Cancer
    Talcum powder doesn’t break down within the body, and it may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when used in the genital area.
  • Transvaginal Mesh Failure
    Transvaginal mesh helps support the internal organs of women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. But the mesh can perforate nearby organs, causing painful injuries that may require surgery to correct.
  • Zimmer Persona® Knee
    A critical component in Zimmer’s Persona® total knee replacement system was recalled after reports of loosening with the knee. Patients who experience loosening may require painful and expensive revision surgeries to correct their defective implants.
