We are the longtime approved partner for legal matters by Local 57’s leadership and we strive to be your resource for important legal news and representation should you ever need it. You may have heard of constant recalls and news about harmful ingredients found in products we use every day. Some examples of cases that we handle include Roundup, Vaping products, Asbestos, Talc Powder, and many more. In this article, we look at three of the most current types of cases with harmful ingredients and known side effects that we have helped clients with.
Most homeowners are familiar with Roundup, a popular weed killer product sold in the form of a spray bottle. Roundup is used to kill weeds on lawns and between cracks on driveways or on your patio. There are other people such as landscapers and farmers who use Roundup on an industrial scale.
Roundup is still one of the most used weed killer products in the US today. The problem, however, comes in when you are exposed to the chemicals used in the manufacture of Roundup for several hours every day.
Exposure to the weed killer through skin absorption, inhalation, and ingestion can lead to medical complications and conditions such as:
- Liver disease
- Heart disease
- Celiac disease
- Chronic kidney disease
- Birth defects
The manufacturers of Roundup are liable for illnesses their product consumers suffer from after using the product so if you or your loved one has suffered the negative effects of Roundup, contact our experienced product liability and mass tort lawyers at Cordisco & Saile, LLC. We’ll provide you with the legal help you need to get the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Zantac is not necessarily a product, but a medication that is known for causing severe side effects to many of its users. This medication is generally used for relief from heartburn, ulcers, and acid reflux.
You can easily buy Zantac over the counter or with a doctor’s prescription. However, this medication was recently recalled for having a known carcinogenic ingredient called NDMA. Studies show that Zantac contains higher levels of NDMA than the limit set by the FDA and this puts its users as a risk.
In fact, Zantac has been linked to serious cancers such as:
- Stomach cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Small intestine cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Multiple Myeloma
- And many more
The manufacturer of Zantac should have known about the connection between its product and cancer and even failed to warn consumers about the dangers of using Zantac. They should be held responsible for any damage caused by their product.
If you or your loved one used Zantac for a year or more and later developed one of the cancers mentioned above, our experienced mass tort lawyers at Cordisco & Saile, LLC can help you get the compensation you deserve. Call us today for a free consultation.
You may have heard a lot recently about vaping all over the tv and the internet. Juul is a brand of e-cigarettes popularly promoted as a safer alternative to traditional smoking. However, users of this vaping product are now facing serious health risks besides getting addicted to the product.
There have been many complaints filed to the FDA about Juul’s nicotine poisoning and toxicity by teenage and young adult users of their vaping products. Some of the most common horrific side effects of Juul’s products include:
- Blood clots
- Seizures and convulsions
- Heart injuries
- High blood pressure
- Lungs and respiratory problems
- Nicotine addiction
- Suicidal thoughts
The manufacturer of the vaping product not only used deceptive marketing strategies to promote their product but also failed to warn users of Juul’s high nicotine content and fast delivery method which have left their users and their families at risk.
If you or your loved one suffers from any of the symptoms mentioned above after using Juul for some time, you may be entitled to compensation. Do not hesitate to contact Cordisco & Saile’s experienced product liability lawyers for a free consultation to determine if you are eligible to participate in the on-going Juul litigation.
