### What is Product Liability Litigation? When innocent people are harmed by products containing design defects, safety issues, or other manufacturing or packaging issues, manufacturers can be held liable under product safety laws. These laws not only provide for the recovery of monetary damages for injuries, medical treatment, loss of income, and pain and suffering; but they also help ensure that manufacturers make a greater effort to test their products for safety before bringing them to market. After all, when we buy a new car or buy toys for our children during the holidays, we place our trust and faith in the designers and manufacturers of those products. Too often, however, our trust is betrayed and our lives are tragically changed by a dangerous product. In addition to individual claims, since mass-produced products and commercial equipment can potentially injure large numbers of people, product liability class action lawsuits are common.

### Common Product Liability Cases Unfortunately, unsafe products often disproportionately harm the most vulnerable among us: our children and our sick and elderly. Among the most prevalent forms of product liability claims are: - Dangerous drugs - Faulty medical equipment - Defective toys and children’s products - Unsafe machinery and industrial equipment - Tainted food products - Toxic or hazardous materials - Motor vehicle defects ### The following products have been a focus of the Green & Schafle legal team:


### 3M Defective Earplugs Lawsuit 3M Combat Arms earplugs are dual-ended earplugs that promise to allow service members to hear orders, information, and normal conversation while also blocking out dangerous loud noises. However, according to the lawsuits filed against 3M Company, the earplugs failed to seal tightly and did not include instructions for proper use.

### Roundup Weed Killer Lawsuit The herbicide and active ingredient in the weed killer Roundup®, called glyphosate, has been classified as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO). Those heavily exposed are filing Roundup lawsuits against Monsanto, the maker of the weed killer, claiming that exposure to glyphosate caused them to develop cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

### Asbestos Exposure Causing Mesothelioma Because asbestos is very strong, heat-resistant, and fibrous, it can easily be woven into fabrics and sprayed on or applied to just about any surface where fire retardation is desired, from work gloves to brake pads to boilers and pipes. Asbestos was used for decades just about everywhere, from factories to office buildings to public schools. Tragically, those asbestos fibers can all too easily be inhaled and settle in the lungs and tissues lining the body’s organ; years or decades later, asbestos in the body causes deadly diseases like mesothelioma.

### Synthetic Hernia Mesh Product Recall Many of the synthetic hernia mesh products marketed since the year 2005 to the present were rushed to the market using the FDA’s 510k clearance process and were manufactured and marketed with little to no studies as to the safety of the device. Many of these devices have been silently withdrawn from the market or otherwise have been recalled.
