Hair Relaxers & Straighteners Litigation

Hair Relaxers & Straighteners Litigation

Seek Justice and Compensation With an Experienced Petersburg Injury Attorney Who is Dedicated To His Clients

Hair relaxers and straighteners are commonly used by women to achieve straight hair and have been a staple in hair care routines for decades. However, recent studies have linked the use of these products to an increased risk of developing uterine cancer. This has led to a number of lawsuits being filed against manufacturers of these products.

The link between hair relaxers and uterine cancer is believed to be due to the presence of certain chemicals, such as lye and formaldehyde. These chemicals have been shown to disrupt the hormonal balance in the body, leading to an increased risk of cancer. In addition, the use of these products can also lead to other health problems, such as scalp irritation and hair breakage.

The litigation surrounding the use of hair relaxers and straighteners is complex and requires the expertise of an experienced attorney. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with uterine cancer or another health problem after using these products, you may be entitled to compensation. The current criteria for pursuing a case are for women diagnosed with:

  • Uterine, endometrial, and ovarian cancers.
  • Uterine fibroids resulting in a surgical procedure.
  • Repeated use of relaxer products including Dark & Lovely, Just for Me, Optimum, etc.
