Chemical hair relaxer (also known as hair straightener) is a product used by millions of African American women. New medical research now shows that chronic exposure to the chemicals in hair relaxer products disrupts the hormone system and leads to an increased risk of uterine cancer.

The product liability lawyers at Miller & Zois are now seeking cases from women who used chemical hair relaxers or hair straighteners on a regular basis for a minimum of 5 years and were subsequently diagnosed with uterine cancer. Contact us about a hair relaxer lawsuit today.

Recent medical studies have determined using high doses of Tylenol (or generic acetaminophen) during pregnancy may cause an increased risk of having a baby with autism or autism spectrum disorder. The new research regarding the link between Tylenol use during pregnancy and autism has prompted many parents of autistic children to bring product liability lawsuits against manufacturers and retailers of acetaminophen products.

As the volume of Tylenol autism lawsuits grows, the cases could be consolidated into a new class action MDL. If this happens and the scientific evidence is deemed to be admissible there could eventually be a global settlement to award financial compensation to parents with acetaminophen-related autism. Our lawyers are currently accepting new Tylenol autism cases across the country from parents of children diagnosed with autism or autism spectrum disorder following high-level use of Tylenol (or acetaminophen) during pregnancy.

New Evidence Shows Tylenol During Pregnancy Leads to Autism

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.

The City of Baltimore has joined the thousands of plaintiffs seeking financial compensation for cancer allegedly caused by exposure to a hidden carcinogen in the popular heartburn drug Zantac (ranitidine). In this post we will look at the odd nature of the Zantac lawsuit filed by the City of Baltimore and evaluate its chances of success.

About the Zantac Cancer Lawsuits

Zantac is the popular brand name for ranitidine, an antacid drug used for the treatment of heart burn, indigestion and other common conditions. Zantac and generic ranitidine had been around for decades in both over-the-counter and prescription forms. It was one of the most commonly used medications in the U.S. Over 10 million people used Zantac on a regular basis.

In 2010 Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old women’s lacrosse student-athlete at the University of Virginia was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend George Huguely. The tragic case made national headlines and was of particular interest locally because Love was from Baltimore. Huguely was convicted of 2nd degree murder and sentenced to 23 years. Love’s mother and sister brought a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Huguely and last week a jury in Virginia awarded them $15 million. Unfortunately, that judgment will likely never be collected. In this post we will look at the wrongful death case and explain why collecting on the $15 million verdict will probably be impossible.

Murder of Yeardley Love

In 2010 Yeardley Love was a beautiful young student-athlete on the women’s lacrosse team at the University of Virginia. Love grew up outside Baltimore and was living in an apartment near UVA’s campus in Charlottesville. George Huguely was also 22 and played on the UVA men’s lacrosse team. Huguely grew up outside Washington, DC in Chevy Chase.

This post will serve as our insider’s guide for what to expect when dealing with State Farm Insurance on auto accident claims in Maryland. We will also offer some tips and strategies for how to effectively work with State Farm and its adjusters on your Maryland auto tort claims. Our Maryland accident lawyers have handled thousands of State Farm claims over the years and we know exactly what can expect with going up against them.

About State Farm

State Farm is the biggest auto insurance company in the U.S., although in Maryland State Farm ranks second behind GEICO in terms of the number of insured drivers. State Farm was originally founded in the 1920s as a mutual auto insurer for farmers, but it has expanded into all lines of insurance.

The well-known infant formula Enfamil has recently been the subject of a growing wave of product liability lawsuits filed in courts around the country. These Enfamil lawsuits have been prompted by recent medical evidence establishing that formulas made from cow milk (like Enfamil) are actually dangerous for premature babies because they significantly increase the risk of developing a deadly infection called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).

The company that makes Enfamil, Mead Johnson Nutrition, has known about the evidence linking its formula to NEC in premature babies. However, Mead Johnson has refused to include any warning on its product labeling for Enfamil and even marketed it as safe for preemies. Parents of premature babies who developed NEC from Enfamil and died or were permanently harmed are now holding Mead Johnson accountable and seeking financial compensation for their loss.

Enfamil is Dangerous for Premature Infants

Similac product liability lawsuits have been filed recently alleging that the popular baby formula has caused many premature infants to develop a serious gastrointestinal infection called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). Our firm is currently looking into potential Similac lawsuits against the formula manufacturer, Abbott Laboratories Inc., for failure to warn about the risks of NEC associated with Similac. A successful baby formula NEC lawsuit could result in significant financial compensation.

Similac Causes NEC in Premature Infants

Similac is a leading brand of baby formula that is made from cow milk and given to infants as a substitute for their mother’s breast milk.  Recent scientific research and medical studies have confirmed that giving bovine formulas such as Similac to premature infants greatly increases their risk of a dangerous bowel infection called necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
