Cordisco & Saile is a longtime supporter of Philadelphia Roofers Local 30 and the approved legal partner by Local 30’s leadership, we aim to keep you all well informed about important legal matters that may affect you as well as give you the best legal representation should you ever need it. In this article, we look at three of the most common examples of harmful products and drugs with potentially dangerous side effects to inform you about everything you need to know if you or a loved one has been exposed to them. If you have seen the news or a post on the internet, you have probably heard of certain medications and other products that have been recalled due to their adverse side effects to consumers. Most of them are normal products we use every day.
Philadelphia roofers are often exposed to a wide range of health risks in the course of their duties, from falls and cuts when working on old roofs to potential health hazards caused by materials like asphalt and asbestos. Besides the usual work-related injuries and illnesses, you are your family are also prone to potential complications arising from harmful materials in products that we use in daily life.
Zantac is a stomach medication that has caused much pain and suffering to many people due to its cancer-causing ingredients. Zantac is frequently used to provide relief from acid reflux, heartburn, and ulcers but was recently recalled after numerous complaints about its potentially harmful ingredients. It is a tragedy when you are told by physicians that medicine will help you, but it turns out to make your health far worse than ever expected.
Recent studies have found that Zantac contains NDMA, a known carcinogenic, in amounts exceeding the limits set by the FDA. NDMA is known to increase the risk of developing cancer, especially when taken in high amounts over a short period of time. Low levels of NDMA exposure in the long-term can also cause cancer.
It is also quite sad that scientists have known about the toxicity of NDMA for more than 40 years but the manufacturers of Zantac continued to use the ingredient in their heartburn medicine. Studies have linked NDMA to increased risks of a wide range of cancers including:
- Stomach cancer
- Small intestine cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Liver cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
- Multiple Myeloma
It is so unfortunate that the manufacturers of Zantac knew or should have known of the potential risks posed by the drug’s ingredients to the consumers but still went ahead to sell the medication to unsuspecting consumers. They failed to warn consumers of the potential dangers of using Zantac and are therefore liable for the damage caused by their product.
If you or your loved one has taken Zantac for at least one year and has developed symptoms of any of the cancers mentioned above, you are eligible to participate in our Zantac lawsuit. Cordisco & Saile, LLC can help you get the compensation you rightfully deserve. Call us today for a free consultation.
Juul has lately been in the news for all the wrong reasons. It is a brand of e-cigarettes that was heavily promoted as a safer alternative to tobacco-based cigarettes but recent developments have proven that users not only become addicted to Juul but in addition can also suffer serious health problems. A majority of Juul users are teenagers and young adults attracted to the product by the promise that Juul is not addictive or as dangerous as smoking cigarettes. Many were drawn to the product by its craveable flavors.
Juul is basically a liquid made of nicotine, flavors, and other ingredients that are usually heated into an inhalable vapor, which is why it is known as a vaping product. However, users were not told that Juul contains much higher nicotine content than traditional cigarettes. In fact, the human body absorbs nicotine much faster in vaping than in traditional smoking. There have many complaints filed with the FDA about Juul’s toxicity and nicotine poisoning. Some of the most common symptoms of vaping include:
- Convulsions and seizures
- Blood clots
- Severe pneumonia
- Elevated blood pressure
- Respiratory problems
- Suicidal tendencies
- And many more
A recent lawsuit against Juul claims the product’s manufacturer deceptively marketed the product to attract young unsuspecting users.
If you or your loved one is a victim of Juul’s deceptive marketing practices and is currently suffering from any of the symptoms mentioned above after using Juul, Cordisco & Saile, LLC can help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today for a free consultation to determine if you are eligible for compensation due to the use of Juul.
Roundup is a popular weed killer that is available in a spray bottle form. Most people have over the years used Roundup to kill weeds on their lawns or between the cracks in their patio, walkway, and driveway.
Roundup is also used on a larger scale by farmers, landscapers, and groundskeepers, who end up being exposed to the chemical for long durations every day. Exposure to Roundup can happen through absorption through the skin, inhalation through the nose and mouth, and ingestion of food or liquids contaminated with Roundup.
There are several medical conditions associated with exposure to Roundup including:
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
- Celiac disease
- Kidney disease
- Birth defects
The company that manufactures and sells Roundup used harmful ingredients in their product and failed to warn users of the potential risks of using Roundup and is therefore liable for damages caused by their product.
If you or your loved one suffers from any of the conditions named above due to exposure to Roundup, our experienced mass tort attorneys at Cordisco & Saile, LLC, will help you to get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today for a consultation.
