As a consumer, you have rights. When you purchase a product, you expect it to perform as it should. Unfortunately, thousands of people are injured each year by defective products.

At Taylor King Law, we are committed to protecting your consumer rights and to holding companies accountable for the quality of their products. Defective product injuries often bring medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We help get the compensation you deserve. 

Defects usually fall into one of three categories:

  • Design – A defective product may be poorly designed
  • Manufacturing – Errors may be made during the production process
  • Marketing – Proper labels and warnings are required for all products. Deceptive marketing omits important information. 

For a complete list of recalled products and medical devices, visit the National Recalls site. There are several recently recalled products to be aware of.

Asbestos-Related Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It can affect the lining of the lungs, heart, or abdomen. 

Asbestos was commonly used in building materials before it was recognized as a health hazard. Many people were unknowingly exposed to this dangerous substance, and some exposure continues today. 

Mesothelioma can develop long after exposure to asbestos – even 20 to 40 years later. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be able to file a lawsuit. While no amount of money can bring back your health, a settlement can help cover the cost of medical expenses and protect your family. 

3M Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) 

Designed for military personnel, the 3M Combat Arms earplugs were commonly used in the U.S military for more than a decade. 3M claimed the design would allow soldiers to hear commands while blocking louder sounds like explosions and gunfire.

The Dual-Ended Combat Arms earplugs did not fit properly into all ears, allowing harmful noises to reach the ear canal. This led to tinnitus and hearing loss for many U.S. service members. 3M was aware of the defect and failed to warn the military of the risks involved.

If you or a loved one used 3M Combat Arms Earplugs between 2003-2015, you may be eligible to file a claim against 3M. Our team is actively filing claims for veteran victims. 

JUUL E-Cigarettes 

JUUL is a very popular brand of e-cigarettes. At least 6 deaths have been linked to e-cigarettes. 

There are several problems with JUUL:

  • The liquid inside a JUUL cartridge contains toxins, including glycerol, proylene glycol, benzoic acid, and elevated levels of nicotine. 
  • JUUL marketing seems geared toward young people, with fruity and candy-like flavors and active social media campaigns.
  • JUUL may have failed to warn consumers about the health risks of e-cigarette use. 

Taylor King Law is actively investigating and filing lawsuits against JUUL in regards to vaping and addiction. 

Roundup Weed Killer (herbicide) 

Roundup Weed Killer is an herbicide produced by Monsanto. It is commonly used as a weed-killer in gardens, parks, and farms. The active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, which may cause cancer.

Roundup exposure has been linked to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and other types of cancer. 

Monsanto falsely claims that the ingredients in Roundup only target plant enzymes. The company has failed to warn users of the connection between their product and cancer.
