As consumers, we’re all entitled to expect quality products from the hair relaxer brands we trust – unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. When customers’ rights are violated, such as in the case of personal injury due to defective or dangerous products, lawsuits can provide an avenue for fairness and justice.
In this blog post, we will explore exactly what it means to file an Optimum Hair Relaxer lawsuit and how plaintiffs can successfully prove their case against the company who manufactured it.
Optimum Hair Relaxer Lawsuit Settlement
Marin and Barrett, Inc. is a law firm that has recently begun work on claims in hopes of negotiating a settlement on behalf of the thousands of people who have filed complaints against the Optimum Hair Relaxer product.
Women all over the United States have recently begun filing a mass tort lawsuit against Optimum Hair Relaxer, claiming that the company’s chemical hair relaxers have caused serious and long-term health conditions such as uterine fibroids. These people, mostly Black women, argue that the phthalates used in their hair relaxers were unknown to them and did not come with a warning about potential side effects.
In order for these affected American women to successfully prove their case, they must first provide medical evidence of their illness and demonstrate how it can be linked to the chemicals in hair relaxer products. They must also be prepared to present evidence supporting their claim as well as testimonies from other women across the country affected by Optimum Hair Relaxer products.
A comprehensive study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that phthalates, like those used in Optimum Hair Relaxer products, may increase the risk of uterine fibroids. In addition, a medical study by the National Institutes of Health found an alarming correlation between the widespread usage of chemical hair straighteners and a significant rise in breast cancer rates. The scientific evidence from these studies further supports the claims of individuals who are filing product liability lawsuits against Optimum Hair Relaxer.
Optimum lawsuits and their settlements are an important part of the legal process. By taking legal action, victims can receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages due to time off work, extreme pain and suffering, and other damages as a result of these cosmetic products. If you have suffered life-threatening health risks due to using chemical hair relaxer products or know someone who has, you or they may be eligible to join a mass tort lawsuit and receive compensation for your or their losses.
