Helping Consumers Get Justice And Compensation After An Injury From A Defective Product
Manufacturers of goods, tools, equipment and anything available for purchase by a consumer have a responsibility to make sure their products are safe for use. Where a risk may be involved, the company must warn potential consumers so that they can avoid injury or illness. Sadly, many manufacturers may cut corners on product testing, fail to disclose known risks and defects, or downplay the possible adverse effects of their products.
Over 50 Years Of Experience
When you or a loved one has suffered an injury or illness due to a faulty or defective product, you may have the right to compensation for your pain and suffering, and losses. Our attorneys at Montgomery Ponder, LLC, are experienced product liability attorneys with over 50 years of combined experience representing individuals who have suffered at the hands of large corporations and manufacturers.
We Represent Mass Tort Cases
In many cases, a popular product can cause injury or illness to a large group of people throughout the country. Cases such as these may be grouped into what is called a “mass tort” – a set of similar lawsuits that are treated as a group for speed, efficiency and consistency. There are other types of cases called class action cases. We also represent clients in these. We can help you assess your right to compensation, and support and guide you through the process.
Our Ongoing Product Liability Lawsuits And Mass Torts
Some of the current and ongoing product liability cases on which we’ve been focusing and representing include:
3M Defective Earplugs
Between 2003 and 2015, the dual-ended 3M Combat Arms Ear Plugs (version 2) were standard-issued equipment for soldiers, who were deployed to combat zones, including Iraq and Afghanistan. These earplugs were poorly designed, which caused the earplugs to loosen over time and allow sound to enter. In July 2018, after a whistleblower stepped forward, 3M agreed to pay a $9 million penalty to the federal government for failing to disclose the design flaw.
Mesothelioma And Asbestos-Related Disease
Asbestos has long been known to cause malignant mesothelioma (a form of cancer) and other severe health risks. If you’ve been diagnosed with this deadly form of cancer, it’s critical to inform your doctor of any past asbestos exposure. Our legal team at Montgomery Ponder, LLC has years of experience representing victims of asbestos exposure and helping them recover compensation.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released a statement indicating that Roundup’s primary active chemical compound, glyphosate, may be linked to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), a life-threatening form of cancer. We are investigating cases in which individuals have used this popular weed killer and have been diagnosed with NHL.
Juul Electronic Cigarettes
When Juul e-cigarette and vaping devices burst onto the market in 2015, the company promoted them as a tool to help smokers quit and improve their lives by reducing the toxins from cigarette smoke. The unfortunate truth is that, instead of converting existing smokers, the majority of consumers Juul Labs has acquired is a new generation of young addicts to nicotine. Victims with children who’ve become addicted may be eligible to file a lawsuit and recover the compensation.
Other hazardous products are still out there, causing harm and even death. The best way to hold big manufacturers accountable is to make the defect known and pursue compensation. We can help.
