Glyphosate Added to California List of Cancer-Causing Chemicals

According to the Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), glyphosate, the active ingredient in the popular herbicide Roundup, will be added to a list of known carcinogens in the state of California. Monsanto, the maker of RoundUp, has been in a legal battle with consumers who claim that the company inadequately warned users of the risk of cancer associated with the product. This listing, which goes into effect on July 7, 2017, is a victory for the over 800 individuals who have sued Monsanto claiming that RoundUp caused their cancer.

Monsanto is already fighting back, calling California’s decision “unwarranted on the basis of science and law.” Initially, the company attempted to block the addition of glyphosate to the list in trial court, but was unsuccessful.  OEHHA has announced that the listing of glyphosate will proceed, requiring companies in California that sell the chemical to add warning labels on packaging. California’s decision to officially classify glyphosate as a carcinogen and require a warning label on the product is a welcome advancement for those fighting against Monsanto’s irresponsibility.

If you or a loved one has non-Hodgins lymphoma cancer that may have been caused by exposure to Roundup, the experienced Mass Tort lawyers at The Yost Legal Group are here to help.

Smith & Nephew Multi-District Litigation Comes to Maryland

People from all over the United States suffering from injuries due to Smith & Nephew Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) and R3 Acetabular system hip devices are now closer than ever to receiving the compensation they deserve. On April 5, 2017, a federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL) was created to combine over 40 federal cases into one proceeding before one judge. The cases will be presided over by Judge Catherine C. Blake of the United States District Court of Maryland in Baltimore. This MDL allows for plaintiffs to maintain their right to a jury trial while benefitting from the efficiency and consistency of rulings by one judge.

Victims of the defective Smith & Nephew hip devices are in severe pain due to premature failure of the devices.  With normal use, components of the implant rub together causing metal particles to be released into the bloodstream. These metal particles cause elevated blood metal levels of Chromium and Cobalt called Metallosis. The side effects of Metallosis include severe hip and leg pain, tissue and bone death, loosening of the device, and pseudotumors.  These Smith & Nephew hip devices, which were supposed to improve the lives of hip replacement patients, have instead led to difficult complications and the need for revision surgeries.

The Maryland MDL gives victims new hope. They can now join together to fight for justice against Smith & Nephew. This is just the latest wave of lawsuits plaguing the medical device industry. Several other MDLs have already been formed to manage cases against hip device manufacturers like Stryker, DePuy, and Zimmer. Although it may take several years for the MDL proceedings to advance to the point where the first cases will be tried, there is no doubt that the consolidation of these Smith & Nephew claims is a step in the right direction.

Our experienced lawyers fight for individuals who have been harmed by defective products. If you or a loved one has been injured or required revision surgery following a Smith & Nephew or other defective hip device, the attorneys at the Yost Legal Group will investigate your potential claim and lawsuit.
