Stolen Kia/Hyundai Vehicles
According to the filed lawsuits, the increase in Kia and Hyundai thefts was due to a social media trend on TikTok. The posts instructed viewers how to steal various makes and models with a USB charging cable and then challenged them to steal the vehicles. The decision to consolidate the case into a single class action was meant to force the automakers to address the problem and compensate owners who had their cars stolen.
Paul LLP Trial Attorneys has been appointed to leadership in a consolidated lawsuit in the Southern District of New York against retailers of acetaminophen products. This litigation arises from recent scientific studies suggesting a link between prenatal acetaminophen exposure and increased risk of neurodevelopmental disorders in children. We represent women who took acetaminophen while they were pregnant and whose children were later diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder. We aim to hold the retailers of acetaminophen products accountable for failing to warn consumers about this potential risk.
Ethylene Oxide Investigation
Ethylene oxide is a gas used for sterilization in various industries, including medical equipment manufacturing and food processing. However, exposure to this chemical has correlations to an increased risk of various types of cancers, including breast and blood cancers. People who have lived or worked near industrial plants that emit ethylene oxide have been diagnosed with cancer, and we are investigating claims on their behalf. We aim to hold these industrial plants accountable for their emissions and the subsequent harm those living and working in their proximity have suffered over the years.
Taxotere (Docetaxel) Eye Injuries Lawsuit
Taxotere, a chemotherapy drug effective in treating various cancers, has significant side effects, including irreversible tear duct damage. Together with co-counsel Hotze Runkle PLLC, Paul LLP Trial Attorneys has been appointed lead counsel in an MDL. This litigation was filed on behalf of cancer patients who suffered injuries to their tear ducts after taking Taxotere (Docetaxel) chemotherapy. This condition leads to excessive tearing and other vision-related issues, significantly affecting the lives of those already grappling with the effects of cancer.
Makena Drug Lawsuit
Makena, a medication prescribed to prevent preterm birth, has come under scrutiny after allegations that it is no more effective than a placebo while carrying a significantly higher price tag. Along with co-counsel in California and New Jersey, Paul LLP Trial Attorneys is working on a consolidated class action on behalf of women who took Makena while they were pregnant. This lawsuit seeks to hold the manufacturers accountable for the financial burden and emotional distress these mothers endured after trusting in the drug's efficacy to ensure the health and safety of their babies.
