What mass tort attorneys do

A mass tort is a joint coordinated legal proceeding that combines individual claims or lawsuits into one court to allow each claimant to recover for his or her own specific injuries. Those injuries could involve varying degrees of physical and emotional damages, as well as economic loss damages due to medical costs and lost wages. Mass tort cases are complicated and could take years to resolve. That’s why you need to work with a highly specialized team of Georgia mass tort lawyers.

Types Of Mass Tort Cases We Handle!

Our mass tort team handles all types of mass tort cases. Here are some of the common mass tort cases we handle:

Zantac

Zantac lawsuits have been filed by people who took Zantac (ranitidine) and later developed cancer. The victims are seeking compensation from the drug manufacturer for stomach, bladder, liver, esophageal, and pancreatic cancer – potentially caused by NDMA exposure. There are certain circumstances where other cancers could have been caused by Zantac and our team is prepared to evaluate similar. The FDA asked the manufacturer to stop selling Zantac manufactured with ranitidine in the U.S. in April 2020 since NDMA contamination could increase over time. The mass tort lawsuits claim that Zantac’s design is defective since its active ingredient – ranitidine – can detioriate into the cancer causing agent NDMA. The company is liable to the public because the label on the drug fails to properly warn the public about the risk of cancer. Our mass tort team at Dalimonte Rueb Stoller will ensure you file your strongest case and work to recover the legal damages from manufacturers of the product.

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination

The water at Camp Lejeune was contaminated with toxic chemicals from 1953 until 1987. Veterans and their family members who have lived and worked at Camp Lejeune during this time period may have been exposed to harmful and toxic chemicals. The toxic water can cause serious diseases like lymphomas and leukemias, many different cancers, Parkinson’s, neurological disorders, and more. If your loved ones have been impacted by the Camp Lejeune water contamination, our attorneys can help you, so please contact us for a no cost case evaluation.

Hernia Mesh

Hernia mesh is used to repair muscle protrusions around the groin, commonly called hernias. These devices were used for many years before it was realized the device injured many patients. Hernia mesh is responsible for causing pain, infection, obstruction, recurrence, and adhesion. Many of these devices have been taken off the market today due to safety concerns. If you or your loved ones have been injured as a result of a hernia mesh, you should consult a mass tort lawyer at Dalimonte Rueb Stoller.

RoundUp

Worldwide conglomerate Monsanto, a company recently purchased by Bayer, manufactures the herbicide (weed killer) RoundUp. The main ingredient of this product is a chemical known as glyphosate, which has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. If you suffer or a loved one was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) after using RoundUp, contact our team of Roundup lawyers immediately.

Talc (Talcum Powder)

Women have been using talcum powder since the early 1900s. More recent studies link long term talcum powder use to ovarian cancer. In addition to its links to ovarian cancer,  Johnson & Johnson also knew its taclum powder contained asbestos for decades. Asbestos exposure can lead to mesothelioma, a deadly and rare cancer. Thousands of women who have been using talcum powder have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma after using talcum powder, schedule a consultation with our lawyers who specializes in talcum powder cases.

EtO

There are confirmed reports of high concentrations of Ethylene Oxide (or EtO) emissions in the Covington and Smyrna, Georgia areas since at least the 1980’s. This toxic gas leaked into the air and surrounding communities from the Sterigenics facility in Smyrna and the BD Bard facility in Covington, where both locations sterilize medical products. Ethylene Oxide is a human carcinogen where long-term exposure can lead to:

  • Blood, Lymphatic, and Bone Cancers (e.g., Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma)
  • Breast Cancers

If you have lived in either of these areas for longer than 5 years since 1970 and since have been diagnosed with either of these cancers, then please call us today for a free consultation.
