Our attorneys are handling Camp Lejeune lawsuits in all 50 states.

Camp Lejeune is a massive Marine Corps base and training facility on the North Carolina coast. Camp Lejeune was opened in 1942 and over a million men, women, and children have lived and worked on the base over the years. Unfortunately, these former residents and employees may have been exposed to harmful, cancer-causing chemicals in the Camp Lejeune water supply.

In the 1980s, the Marine Corps discovered that the drinking water supply for the Camp Lejeune military base was dangerously contaminated with very high levels of carcinogenic chemicals. The chemicals in the water included perchloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), and benzene. All 3 have been shown to cause specific types of cancer.

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?

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.

The hernia mesh lawsuits have been litigated for years.  For victims seeking settlement compensation, it has been a never-ending road.  But with the court bouncing back from COVID, two trials are on the way that could be the bridge to a class action hernia mesh settlement to finally bring victims overdue settlement compensation for the harm done to them.

Over the last decade, countless individuals who underwent hernia repair surgeries subsequently suffered pain and serious injuries caused by a defective hernia mesh implant that was used in their procedure. There are currently thousands of hernia mesh lawsuits currently pending across the country and they have been consolidated into three separate class action MDLs.

Progress in all the hernia mesh class action MDLs got interrupted by the pandemic and resulting court closures. Now things are opening back up and it is shaping up to be an action-packed summer on the hernia mesh litigation front. In this post, we will look at the current status of each of the 3 separate hernia mesh MDLs and what to expect this summer as the first round of bellwether test trials get underway.

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 Continues in March 2022

Pressure cookers have been causing devastating harm to their users. This has led to defective pressure cooker injury lawsuits.  Our lawyers are handling pressure cooker injury claims not only in Maryland but around the country.

With over 53 million Americans owning some brand of a pressure cooker, the safety of the cookers is a huge concern. It is incredibly flexible weapon in cooking. But the rush to grab profits in this competitive market has led some manufacturers to cut corners. Since 2006, many different brands of pressure cookers have been recalled for many reasons regarding their safety. The impact of these recalls and the harm pressure cookers are causing is concerning.  Defective pressure cookers too often lead to serious and avoidable injuries.

What is a “Pressure Cooker”?

Does a product manufacturer has a nondelegable duty to design a safe product or can they kick that can down to the end-user?

Said differently, can a product manufacturer shift the responsibility for making safety choices to the end-user of that product?

Okay, this is looking a little bit like a push poll, right?  I’m trying to lead you to the answer that I want.  So maybe the question, phrased least generously to the plaintiff, is does a manufacturer have an obligation to install optional safety equipment?

Juul is facing lawsuits on multiple fronts. Our lawyers are focusing on vaping injury and vaping addition cases in young people who plaintiffs’ lawyers argue were targeted by Juul.

There is a vaping crisis in the country that snuck up on everyone.  There are stories every week about the growing number of vaping-related illnesses and injuries appearing at hospitals. According to a recent Washington Post article, there are now 18 reported deaths related to a mysterious vaping illness, along with over 1,000 other possible cases of vaping-related injuries.  It may well be that many of these specific cases have little to do with Juul.  But this crisis has everyone taking a close look at Juul.

Years ago, we were involved in gadolinium MRI lawsuits involving nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF), which is a fibrosing disorder of the skin and joints that occurs with victims with advanced renal insufficiency.

The cases settled for millions of dollars because NSF is just an absolutely awful disease.  Now there is a new set of gadolinium MRI lawsuits alleging that gadolinium is toxic and harming patients.
