wheat-gf75725a52_640On June 21, 2022 The United States Supreme Court denied an appeal to put an end to thousands of pending lawsuits tying Bayer’s weedkiller product to cancer diagnosis.

This development comes after a Supreme Court request from May of 2022 to hear from President Biden’s administration. Biden’s solicitor general produced a brief which urged the Court to the similar and recent rejection.

The decision supports a $25 million verdict from Northern California, awarding Edwin Hardeman damages from his continual Roundup use. While this case has been used in a practical sense of applying similar suits, Bayer has recently won four consecutive trials in various state courts.

nepali-boy-gd20405235_640-e1655154307548Parents may be alarmed to learn that Asweets has recalled its wooden baby activity push walker due to a strangulation hazard. The rubber rings on the rear wheels of a walker may separate from the wheels and detach, and this can result in a young child being at risk of strangulation. Asweets has received 10 reports of the rubber rings detaching from the wheels, though no injuries to babies have been reported. On June 2, 2022, the company recalled these walkers. If your baby is injured by an Asweets walker, or another walker that may be defective, you should give the experienced product liability lawyers of Moll Law Group a call. Cases with which we’ve been involved have resulted in damages in the billions.

Contact Moll Law Group About Your Claim

The remedy for the recalled Asweets baby walkers is a repair of the walker. The repair involves free replacement rear wheels. It’s important to take recalled walkers away from your children and stop using them until they are repaired. Around 13,300 units were affected by this recall. You can contact Asweets directly to get instructions on how to get replacement rear wheels. Retailers that sold the affected walker included Crate and Barrel, Nordstrom, Albee Baby, Bloomingdale’s, The Tot, and children’s boutiques.

However, in some instances, babies are injured by defective walkers, and a simple replacement really part doesn’t address the family’s needs. When you buy your baby a walker, you anticipate that it will be reasonably safe to use, and you don’t expect to incur medical bills because you allowed your baby to use it. Unfortunately, babies have been seriously injured while using various types of walkers their parents or caregivers assumed were safe. If your baby is injured by an Asweets walker, or any other kind of walker, you may not have enough saved to address the injuries and you may wish to consider bringing a product liability lawsuit for damages.

man-gba9125107_640On May 10, 2022, President Joe Biden’s administration responded to the Supreme Court’s request that it provide its views on Roundup weedkiller litigation. Plaintiffs pursued claims against the manufacturer of Roundup weedkiller, Bayer, because evidence surfaced that Roundup may have caused their cancer. In the course of the litigation, Bayer had tried to evade liability by asking the Supreme Court to dismiss customer claims. When asked to weigh in, Biden’s solicitor general filed a brief asking the Court to reject Bayer’s request. In most cases, the Court defers to the solicitor general’s conclusions, so this is a crucial moment in the litigation. If you were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and exposed to Roundup, you should call the experienced product liability lawyers of Moll Law Group, which represents plaintiffs around the country. Billions have been recovered in cases with which we’ve been involved.

Talk to the Product Liability Lawyers of Moll Law Group About Your Claim

The brief from the Biden administration may have an impact on whether Bayer is willing to settle claims in the Roundup litigation. Court-watchers are closely scrutinizing whether the Supreme Court takes up Bayer’s request for review of a Northern California case because there are thousands of Roundup cases and many people who may be affected by the Court’s decision.

The Northern California case about which Bayer seeks review was brought by a Roundup user, Edwin Hardeman. He alleged that his cancer had been caused by Roundup and received $25 million in damages in a lower court decision. He had regularly used the weedkiller at his northern California home before getting diagnosed with a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The Ninth Circuit had upheld this damages award in May. It was just one of many lawsuits alleging that the manufacturer should have warned consumers about the alleged cancer risk.

drinking-milk-gd45eea696_640It is important to be aware that specific powdered infant formulas such as Similac and Enfamil have been linked to causing necrotizing enterocolitis in premature babies. Manufacturer Abbott Laboratories, Inc. made a motion before the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to centralize the infant formula lawsuits pending against them in the District of Connecticut. In the cases to be transferred, the harmed plaintiffs contended that their infant formula, based on milk, causes necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) when given to premature babies. If you believe your premature baby suffered from necrotizing enterocolitis and was injured or died because of infant formula, you may have a claim that can be heard as part of multidistrict litigation (MDL). Give the seasoned product liability lawyers of Moll Law Group a call. Billions have been recovered in cases with which we’ve been involved.

Discuss Your Infant Formula Case with Moll Law Group

The motion to transfer the lawsuits involving powdered infant formula to a district court in Illinois was supported by Mead Johnson Nutrition Company and Mead Johnson & Company, LLC.

magnetic-ball-g5fa74c0ee_640Parents should be aware of a troubling risk that magnetic spheres carry. HD Premier’s DigitDots Magnetic Balls have been recalled because children have swallowed them and suffer perforations and blockages of intestines, blood poisoning, and infection; these are problems that can lead to death. Around 119,620 units of these magnetic balls have been sold online at www.ilovedigitdots.com, www.amazon.com and other websites from March 2019 -January 2022 for $20 – $30. If your child swallowed a Digit Dot Magnetic Ball or other magnet and suffered injuries, you should call the seasoned product liability lawyers of Moll Law Group. Billions have been recovered in cases with which we’ve been involved.

Give the Moll Law Group a Call About Injuries from Magnets

All 3 mm and 5 mm DigitDots Magnetic Balls have been recalled for safety. They are small and spherical rare earth magnets that have strong magnetic flux. While the 3 mm diameter magnets are sold as aggregated loose magnets, the 5 mm diameter magnets are sold as loose magnets in sets of 222 silver magnetic balls or 224 multicolored magnetic balls. The ones that were recalled were sold in clear, disposable packaging that bears the DigitDots name and logo and includes a plastic carrying case that is also imprinted with the DigitDots name and logo. It’s been found that when two or more of these magnets are swallowed, they may attract to each other or a different swallowed metal object. Often these magnetic balls are inadvertently swallowed by children; in some cases, they are intentionally swallowed by a small child who doesn’t understand the possible consequences. Once ingested, the magnets can become stuck in the digestive system and cause injuries or death as a result of the magnets blocking, twisting, or even perforating the intestines.

So far, HD Premier has been made aware of four children who swallowed the DigitDots and needed to undergo surgery to remove the magnets. However, DigitDots are not the only brand of magnets that carry this risk of ingestion. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has become aware of reports of other companies’ high powered magnets being ingested and needing surgery. Two children or teenagers died. Consumers have been asked to stop using recalled magnets and to remove them from access by children. You can contact HD Premier to return the recalled magnets with a prepaid label. Once the company receives the returned magnet, you should receive a refund.

Recently Sakar International Helmets’ Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker multi-purpose helmets were recalled because they did not comply with federal safety standards. For that reason, head injuries may result if the wearer of the helmet falls. After suffering injuries because your helmet was defective, you may be uncertain about what recourse you have. If you suffered head or other injuries due to a recalled bicycle helmet, you should call the experienced Chicago product liability lawyers of Moll Law Group. Billions have been recovered in litigation with which we’ve been involved.

Hire the Moll Law Group If You Were Injured Because of a Defective Helmet

Sakar’s recall concerned the Dimensions Bluetooth Speaker helmets, which are black helmets with black straps and buckles. A white label inside the helmet is printed with Item # ACTGEAR-238BTS in the bottom left corner.  These helmets were sold only at Walmart from July 2020 – January 2022 for roughly $25. 89,000 of them were sold. When these helmets don’t comply with federal safety standards, a fall can result in serious injuries. Consumers are supposed to immediately cease use of the recalled helmets and get in touch with Sakar to receive instructions to get a free replacement helmet. Sakar intends to facilitate the return by providing prepaid postage packaging.

If you were already injured as the result of a fall involving a defective helmet made by Sakar, however, you may be concerned about recourse for the losses flowing from those injuries. You may be able to recover damages by filing a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer and others in the chain of commerce. To recover damages, our lawyers will need to establish that the helmet was defective in terms of its design, marketing, or manufacturing. Defects in design are flaws in what the product is supposed to be. For example, if none of the helmets comply with safety standards, there is likely a design flaw. However, if only certain helmets have problems, it is more likely a manufacturing defect, or flaw in how the helmet was made. Experts may need to testify on the type of defect.
