Everyday we use consumer products and even take medications putting our trust that the companies and manufacturers have done what was needed to make sure they were safe for us, but what happens when they fail to do so? If you have watched the news or stumbled on an article on the internet about defective products or harmful drugs, you may have cringed. Let’s face it, it can happen to anyone!
In such cases, the manufacturer of the harmful products or medications should be liable for the personal damages you have suffered. This breakdown in the process of trust and keeping us safe, can not happen. These are usually normal products people use or medication prescribed by a doctor in their daily lives without knowing the risks posed by the ingredients.
Here are three good examples of everyday products that have been found to be potentially dangerous to consumers:
Zantac is a perfect example of a drug that has resulted in many lawsuits due to its cancer-causing ingredient. It is a medication that was sold over the counter as an effective relief from stomach problems such as heartburn, acid reflux, and even stomach ulcers.
However, Zantac was later recalled after it was found to contain a carcinogenic ingredient known as NDMA. The ingredient increases the risks of developing a wide range of cancers. The manufacturers knew about the toxicity of NDMA to the human body but still continued selling their NDMA-laden product to unsuspecting consumers.
NDMA increases risks of different cancers including:
- Pancreatic cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Small intestine cancer
- Liver cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Multiple Myeloma
- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Since the manufacturers of Zantac already knew of the potential risks posed by their product and failed to give sufficient warning to consumers, they should be held liable for any damage caused by Zantac.
If you or a member of your family has been diagnosed with any of the cancers mentioned above after using Zantac, contact Cordisco & Saile, LLC today and our experienced product liability lawyers will help you get the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Juul is another example of recreational products with adverse side effects to consumers. It is a brand of e-cigarettes promoted to teenagers and young adults as a safer alternative to tobacco-based cigarettes. A majority of Juul users were attracted to the vaping product by its flavors and the promise that Juul was not addictive.
However, Juul has been found to have high levels of nicotine and other toxic chemicals. It is consumed as an inhalable vapor and is therefore absorbed by the body faster than normal cigarettes. Worst of all, Juul is just as addictive as regular tobacco cigarettes.
Users of Juul have complained of mild to severe side effects including:
- Blood clots
- Respiratory problems
- High blood pressure
- Anxiety and suicidal feelings
The product’s manufacturers used deceptive marketing practices to promote the product and failed to give sufficient warning about the potential risks of their product. They should be held responsible for any ill-health and other damages anyone has suffered after using Juul.
At Cordisco & Saile, LLC, we have experienced product liability and mass tort lawyers ready to help you file a compensation claim if you or your loved one has experienced any of the symptoms mentioned above after using Juul.
Many homeowners, including members of the PSEA Mideastern Union, have at one time or another used Roundup to kill weeds in their lawns, patios, walkways, and driveways. The weed killer is also used on a larger scale by farmers and landscapers.
However, exposure to Roundup by inhalation, absorption through the skin, or ingestion of food and drinks contaminated with Roundup can lead to severe complications such as:
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
- Celiac disease
- Kidney disease
- Birth defects
The ingredients used in Roundup are not only harmful to your health but easily absorbed into the body too. The weed killer’s manufacturer used potentially dangerous ingredients and failed to give sufficient warnings to consumers. They are therefore liable for any damage, disease, or even death caused by their product.
If you or your loved one has developed any of the symptoms mentioned above after using Roundup, contact Cordisco & Saile, LLC today and we’ll help you get compensated for the damage and pain you have suffered due to Roundup.
Product and drug manufacturers should be held accountable for any health complications caused by their products. At Cordisco & Saile, we are committed to helping PSEA Union members and other members of the society who have been adversely affected by potentially dangerous products get the compensation they deserve.
