'Old Smokey' Coconut Grove, Florida Lawsuit

“Old Smokey,” as it is colloquially called, was a municipal trash incinerator that operated in the segregated portion of Miami’s West Coconut Grove neighborhood for almost 50 years, beginning in 1926. Old Smokey was ultimately closed in 1970 after the City of Coral Gables, a predominately white neighborhood at the time, filed a nuisance lawsuit based on the fact that ash emitted from the Old Smokey incinerator was reaching its residents’ homes. The ash spewed across the community by the incinerator, and eventually buried across several West Coconut Grove parks, contained chemicals such dioxins, arsenic, lead and antimony – chemicals which are well-known to be harmful to human health.

Firefighter Health Lawsuit

Regular exposure to certain firefighting foams containing PFAS can result in these 'forever chemicals' accumulating in firefighters' bodies, potentially leading to serious health complications over time. We fight for those suffering from illnesses linked to 'forever chemicals' (PFAS) also found in firefighting gear that can seep into firefighters' skin through sweat and other exposure routes, posing serious health risks over time.

3M Hearing Lawsuit

Minneapolis-based 3M manufactured dual-ended earplugs for hearing protection from close range firearms and other loud impact noises. Due to the defective design, the earplugs can slightly loosen and subtly move out of the ear canal just enough for the loud sounds to cause hearing damage. According to reports, 3M knew of these design defects, but knowingly sold them to the US military from 2003-2015. As a result of the manufacturer of the defective earplugs failing to properly disclose the known defects and product limitations servicemen, woman, and combat veterans have reported multiple side effects, including hearing loss, tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, permanent hearing damage, and/or deafness.

Roundup Weed Killer Lawsuit

Roundup, a widely-used herbicide, has been linked to cancer, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia. Despite its long history since 1974, concerns over glyphosate's carcinogenic potential were highlighted by the WHO in 2015. Many in Florida unknowingly faced Roundup's cancer risk. If you or a loved one in Florida has been diagnosed with cancer due to Roundup exposure, you may qualify for a lawsuit to seek compensation and hold Monsanto accountable.

Mass Tort & Class Action Lawsuit FAQ

Navigating legal matters involving mass tort and class action lawsuits can be complex. Whether you're curious about eligibility, the differences between mass torts and class actions, or the benefits of joining such lawsuits, our FAQ's below aim to equip you with essential knowledge. Explore answers to frequently asked questions to better understand how these legal avenues may apply to your situation:

What is a mass tort lawsuit?

A mass tort lawsuit involves multiple plaintiffs who have suffered similar injuries or damages from a single product or incident. It allows these individuals to collectively pursue legal action against the responsible party.

How is a class action lawsuit different from a mass tort lawsuit?

In a class action lawsuit, one or more plaintiffs represent a larger group (class) of individuals who have suffered similar harm. A mass tort lawsuit, on the other hand, involves individual lawsuits that are consolidated due to similar circumstances but are often more tailored to each plaintiff's unique situation.

What types of cases qualify for a mass tort or class action lawsuit?

Cases involving defective products, pharmaceutical injuries, environmental disasters, consumer fraud, and workplace discrimination are common candidates for mass tort or class action lawsuits.

How do I know if I qualify to join a mass tort or class action lawsuit?

Qualifications depend on the specific details of each case. Typically, eligibility is determined based on whether you were harmed by the same product or incident as others involved in the lawsuit. Consulting with an attorney experienced in mass tort or class action litigation can clarify your eligibility.

What are the benefits of joining a mass tort or class action lawsuit?

Joining such lawsuits can provide strength in numbers, sharing legal costs, streamlined legal proceedings, and potentially higher chances of achieving just compensation compared to pursuing an individual lawsuit.

How can an attorney help me with a mass tort or class action lawsuit?

An experienced attorney can assess your case, gather evidence, negotiate settlements, represent you in court, and ensure your rights are protected throughout the legal process. They can also advise on whether joining a mass tort or class action lawsuit is the best course of action for your situation.
