Elmiron eye damage and vision loss lawsuits are now in an MDL class action lawsuit that houses all federal court Elmiron lawsuits.  Our lawyers are seeking new victims who are seeing a settlement compensation payout for their injuries.

Our Elmiron lawyers believe these class action eye damage lawsuits will ultimately result in large settlements and, just as important, a new and strong warning that lets doctors and patients know of the risks of Elmiron.  Our Elmiron lawyers are handling these cases throughout the country.

There is an Elmiron lawsuit that will go to trial in the class action in January 2023.  There could be a class action settlement before that trial… or possibly a large verdict that will further ignite this litigation.

Our lawyers have high hopes for the Paraquat lawsuit.  Our attorneys are handling these claims in all 50 states.  Our attorneys believe the science strongly supports the premise that Paraquat exposure causes Parkinson’s disease.

As our lawyers discuss below, the Paraquat Parkinson’s disease lawsuit may have higher projected individual settlement amounts than any other mass tort in the country.

What Is Paraquat?

This page is about the 3M earplug lawsuit.  Our lawyers are handling these claims in all 50 states.

If you are a plaintiff in these lawsuits, you want to know when the 3M lawsuit will be settled, what the individual settlement amounts might be, and get the latest update in the class action.  I start with the latest 3M earplug lawsuit update and then get into the rest.

This post is about calculating wrongful death settlement compensation payouts in Maryland. Our lawyers have handled scores of wrongful death malpractice lawsuits in Maryland and have developed a strong sense for what settlement amounts and jury payouts you can expect if you have a claim.

Wrongful Death Malpractice Settlement Amounts

What is the average settlement amount for wrongful death medical malpractice cases in Maryland and the District of Columbia? 

Our Maryland-based attorneys are reviewing Camp Lejeune water poisoning lawsuits in all 50 states.

For a period of 35 years (from the 1950s to the 1980s) an estimated 1 million former residents and employees at the Camp Lejeune Marine Corps base in North Carolina were being supplied with drinking water that was poisoned with massive levels of industrial chemicals. Subsequent studies have shown that the exposure to these chemicals caused former Camp Lejeune personnel to suffer higher rates of cancer, birth defects, and other diseases.

Sadly, an austere law in North Carolina has prevented these victims from pursuing justice.  But there is now a new law that gives Camp Lejeune water contamination victims the right to file water contamination lawsuits and get compensation for their injuries.

Firefighting foam (aqueous film-forming foam “AFFF”)) is a chemical product that has been used for years by firemen and in other commercial applications to extinguish fires.

Various studies have recently shown, however, that chronic use or exposure to firefighting can cause certain types of cancer. This discovery has led to a wave of firefighting foam lawsuits by former firemen and others who developed cancer after long periods of occupational exposure to AFF.

Our lawyers are accepting new clients in all 50 states for inclusion in the nationwide AFFF class action lawsuit.

Monsanto Roundup lawsuits have led Bayer to pay billions of dollars in settlement compensation payouts to victims and their families with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

If you have a new Roundup herbicide non-Hodgin’s lymphoma cancer case, call a Roundup attorney.  Not today.  Right now.  Because the statute of limitations may come upon you quickly.  The statute of limitations is a harsh and unforgiving deadline that is near impossible to get around.  You can call our Roundup lawyers at 800-553-8082.

Roundup Lawsuit August 2022 Update

In the recent decision in Wadsworth v. Sharma, 2022 WL 2763202 (Md. 2022), the Maryland Court of Appeals once again declined to adopted the loss of chance doctrine in wrongful death cases. The decision was based largely on the COA’s long standing tradition of abstaining from judicial policymaking, as the majority opinion noted that it was up to the Maryland legislature whether to adopt this rule. Unfortunately, this decision effectively means that doctors and hospitals in Maryland are immune from malpractice liability when caring for terminally ill patients.

Summary of Facts

Stephanie Wadsworth was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in her left breast in 2006. She underwent a mastectomy, chemo, and radiation therapy and subsequent testing over the course of the next few years indicated that her cancer had been effectively treated.

Our law firm has handled a lot of vertebrae fractures in car, motorcycle, and truck accident cases over the last 20 years.  A vertebrae fracture can be a serious, significant, and permanent injury to the musculoskeletal system. You wouldn’t wish this fracture on anyone.

What is the Settlement Value of a Vertebrae Fracture Case?

One study found that the national median award at trial in personal injury cases for a vertebra fracture is $112,537.  The median award for multiple vertebrae fractures is almost double the single vertebra amount, $207,000.

This is far lower than our law firm’s average settlement in vertebrae fracture cases. Why? There could be some jurisdictional differences. Because this is not Maryland data, but national data. The pool for these statistics may also include hairline fractures. When I’m talking vertebrae fracture claims, I’m not talking about hairline fractures.

Our lawyers are bringing Paragard lawsuits in all 50 states. 


The Paragard IUD is an intrauterine contraceptive device made by Teva Pharmaceuticals.  It was discovered that a design defect in the Paragard was causing the IUD device to fracture during removal, leaving shattered pieces floating around inside the uterus. Our Paragard lawyers are handling only injury during IUD removal claims.

Over one thousand women who have been harmed by this defect are filing Paragard lawsuits. A Paragard class action lawsuit has been formed.
