When You Need to Fight Back

Mass Torts

Mass torts are when injured people come together to fight back against a company. You may not realize it but you’ve seen examples of this type of case on TV for years. If you’ve ever heard the phrase, “have you or a love one been hurt by…” then you’ve seen an ad for a mass tort. For instance, one of the most famous and still ongoing mass tort is for mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos.

There are many reasons why joining a mass tort might be good for your case and many reasons it may be harmful. If you’re facing off against a large company you may not be able to pay to defend your case in court by yourself, or you may not have enough evidence. However, mass torts are known for splitting the settlement between all of the plaintiffs so you can expect to see a smaller payout.

Most hair smoothing or straightening products release formaldehyde gas, a known human carcinogen as classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, into the air during the hair straightening or smoothing process. When formaldehyde is released into the air and is present in the air at levels exceeding 0.1 ppm, it can cause serious irritation of your eyes, nose, and lungs. It can also cause skin sensitivity or allergic dermatitis. Formaldehyde exposure can cause both short- and long-term effects that may impact your health.

These manufactures failed to properly warn consumers of the risks associated with their product. Although manufactures have long known the link between the product and Parkinson’s disease they continued to distribute and sell the defective product without adequate warnings to those working or living around the weed killer.
