Hundreds of thousands of military veterans have been diagnosed with profound hearing loss as a result of being exposed to loud noise during their time in uniform.

The armed forces were supposed to provide military service members with protection to keep this from happening, especially when service members were deployed overseas. However, some of these protection devices were defective, and retired service members not suffer from hearing problems.

Attorneys are filing hearing loss lawsuits against 3M, now the owner of the company that made the combat earplugs.

Developing Parkinson’s disease is not something that often happens on its own. Of course, there are genetic factors that could play a part in this neurological disorder. However, it is a combination of genetic and environmental factors that could lead to this disease.

In some cases, we have seen recent lawsuits that allege that exposure to certain chemicals has caused Parkinson’s disease. Here, we will focus on how people could develop Parkinson’s. That could give you an idea of whether you may have a possible lawsuit.

Reasons Why Parkinson’s Disease Occurs

Dangerous manufacturer defects are the cause of many across the United States including those involving insufficient warnings, design defect, and maker error in the product.

Every year, they cause substantial injury and even many deaths. Some frequent sources of deadly product defects include medications, lawn sprays, automobiles, business construction equipment, and even home building components.

Contact the attorneys of our law firm if a dangerous company product harmed you in an accident. A skilled attorney, experienced in product liability law, can speak with you about your injury and whether or not you may have a case against the manufacturer.

What is the Roundup Lawsuit Payout?

The lawsuits filed on behalf of the tens of thousands of people who were exposed to Roundup have turned into one of the largest mass tort litigation cases of all time.

In the wake of the multi-billion dollar Roundup settlement, people have been asking our law firm for legal advice about whether they have a valid claim. They are also asking us about the average settlement in the case.

For decades, farmworkers, groundskeepers, and agricultural workers have used Paraquat, the highly toxic chemical herbicide that kills brought-leaf grasses and weeds. Unfortunately, exposure to the highly toxic chemical has been linked to numerous illnesses, including Parkinson’s disease.

The personal injury attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, LLC represent clients harmed by toxic chemicals and hazardous environments. Our product liability attorneys are currently pursuing Paraquat lawsuit compensation claims to secure justice on behalf of our clients to ensure they receive the monetary recovery they deserve.

Even though the Environmental Protection Agency has evaluated environmental factors and identified the extreme toxicity of Paraquat, the chemical pesticides are still used nationwide. 

Legal Theories to Win a Product Liability LawsuitProduct liability lawsuits are some of the most newsworthy court cases. Many people have heard of large-scale settlements that can reach into the billions of dollars. For example, the makers of the weed killer Roundup recently agreed to pay $10 billion to settle over 10,000 product liability cases.

Another example is the hundreds of millions of dollars that automakers paid out for the defective Taketa airbags that they put in cars.

However, there is a lot that must happen from the time that the claim is filed by the injured person through the time that the defendant pays to settle a lawsuit that claims that their product harmed someone. In Illinois, the product liability law is found in 735 ILCS 5/. Part 21 specifically focuses on product liability law.

Talc Powder and Johnson and Johnson Having to Pull ItFor decades, baby powder was viewed as Johnson & Johnson’s flagship product. The company started selling baby powder with talc in it all the way back in 1894, only eight years after the company was founded.

However, Johnson & Johnson’s century-plus history of marketing talc-based baby powder is now over as several crushing jury verdicts have made selling the product a high-risk proposition. Juries have found the pharmaceutical giant’s product responsible for cases of cancer and have ordered the company to pay billions of dollars in damages.

Juries Have Issued Large Talc Powder Verdicts
