Potential Link Found Between Uterine Cancer and Hair Straightening Chemicals

Potential Link Found Between Uterine Cancer and Hair Straightening Chemicals

The appearance of hair, whether straight or curly, is dependent upon the shape of the hair follicle, and that appearance is then held by disulfide bonds. Chemical hair straighteners (also known as relaxers) use a variety of chemicals to break down those disulfide bonds, resulting in a straight or “relaxed” look.

A potential link found between uterine cancer and hair straightening chemicals calls the safety of these products into question. If you believe that your cancer diagnosis may have been the result of using a dangerous product that you believed to be safe, we encourage you to contact Bey & Associates as soon as possible. Our compassionate attorneys are ready to discuss what happened to you, and we’ll make sure you understand all the legal options at your disposal.

The Difference Between Product Liability and Strict Product Liability

The Difference Between Product Liability and Strict Product Liability

When you buy a product, you expect it to work as advertised. When you follow the directions and take it or use it as instructed, it should work the way that it claims to work. When an adverse reaction happens or it harms you, that’s when you can hold the company or seller accountable for their negligence. When that product is inherently dangerous, it could even fall under strict liability rather than just product liability.

You might be wondering whether your injuries would be better suited for product liability or strict product liability. At Bey & Associates, we’ve got you covered. Our product liability lawyers are here to guide you through the legal process so that you’re taking the right steps to the best outcome possible for you.

Deployed airbags in a car

Airbags exist to help soften the blow of injuries in a car accident. Even when an airbag deploys, though, it can cause injuries. But the harm that you can sustain from an airbag is much less serious than the damages that you could suffer when an airbag fails. When an important safety feature in your car fails in the moment you need them the most, you could sustain serious, life-threatening injuries.

Cooking products are constantly evolving. This year, you might have bought tear-free onion cutting goggles, a heat conducting butter knife, or a snap on pasta strainer in the name of efficiency. While those products are probably harmless, some of the more complex cooking products might be more dangerous.

Some of the bigger products on the market are unsafe when not used properly. Even though pressure cookers, air fryers, and immersion cookers are on trend this year, that doesn’t mean that they are completely safe or easy to use. Here are the most dangerous cooking products on the market this year.

Published on Dec 21, 2017 at 5:57 pm in Product Liability.

A mass tort is a case where many people are injured or harmed by a product and they each sue the corporation individually under the same claim. While there are many separate cases, they will most likely share characteristics or be based on similar injuries.

2017 saw many products with negative consequences. Many of these lawsuits are expected to continue to develop in 2018, but other new cases will develop and make headlines as the year continues to unfold.
