Dangerous Drugs and Products

Over the last 19 years, millions of American service members have deployed overseas with the U.S. military. While the job can be dangerous, service members don’t expect to be harmed by their safety equipment.

Bard PowerPort Litigation

The Bard PowerPort, a medical implant designed to facilitate the administration of medication and fluids without frequent needle contact, has faced significant backlash as users report injuries and health complications allegedly caused by the device. Numerous patients nationwide have filed lawsuits against Bard Access Systems, C.R. Bard, Becton, and Dickinson & Co., the manufacturers of the Bard PowerPort, seeking compensation for their injuries. Claimants argue that the device's faulty design leads to toxic material leakage and fragmentation, causing severe health issues such as infections, blood clots, organ damage, and even death. Lawsuits contend that despite numerous complaints and adverse event reports, the manufacturer failed to recall or modify the device and deliberately misled the public about its safety.

Chemical Hair Straighteners & Cancer

The use of chemical hair straighteners, a common practice for achieving smooth hair, is now raising concerns about potential health risks, particularly hormone-related cancers such as uterine, ovarian, and endometrial cancer. A 2022 study from the National Institutes of Health associates chemical hair straighteners with hormone-sensitive cancers, revealing the presence of carcinogens and endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in these products. EDCs, including benzophenone-3, cyclosiloxanes, and parabens, are linked to adverse health effects such as interference with development, respiratory issues, infertility, and an increased risk of various cancers. Numerous lawsuits are emerging against manufacturers like L’Oreal, Strength of Nature, and Revlon.


Paraquat is a toxic chemical often used as an herbicide for weed and grass control. In the U.S., the chemical is available in liquid form in various strengths. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies Paraquat as “restricted use,” which means that only people with licenses can purchase and apply it. Still, commercial agriculture workers face long-term exposure to Paraquat and face the risk of poisoning or developing long-term health conditions like Parkinson’s Disease.
