What is a Mass Tort Answering Service

Posted on Thursday, May 25th, 2023 at 11:35 am    

In mass tort litigation, a mass tort answering service supports law firms and attorneys. Mass tort answering services are designed to handle the high volume of calls and inquiries that occur when mass tort cases are being handled.

If you are exploring legal intake services for law firms, read on to learn more about how a mass tort answering service could be a tool for growth and success.   

What Does a Mass Tort Answering Service Do?

The primary goal of a mass tort answering service is to provide a centralized point of contact for you, your clients, and other parties involved in the case. A mass tort answering service is a specialized type of call center that is designed to handle the high volume of calls and inquiries that arise during a mass tort case.

A mass tort answering service can help manage these calls and ensure that each caller is handled professionally and efficiently.

The specific services provided by a mass tort answering service can vary depending on the needs of the case. However, some common services may include:

  • Call Screening and Intake: Call center agents can screen incoming calls and determine if the caller is a potential claimant. They can also gather basic information from the caller and provide them with information about the case and the legal process.
  • Case Management: Once a caller is identified as a potential claimant, the call center can manage their case information and keep track of important deadlines and updates.
  • Notification and Communication: Call center agents can notify potential claimants about important updates and deadlines in the case. They can also communicate with attorneys and other stakeholders involved in the case.
  • Document Management: Call centers can assist with the collection and management of documents related to the case, including medical records, employment records, and other relevant information.
  • Language Support: Mass tort cases can involve individuals from diverse backgrounds who speak different languages. Call centers can provide language support to ensure that non-English speakers can communicate effectively with the legal team.
  • 24/7 Availability: Mass tort cases can be time-sensitive, and potential claimants may need to call outside of regular business hours. A mass tort answering service can provide 24/7 availability to ensure that calls are always answered.
  • Customizable Scripts: Call center agents can use customizable scripts to ensure that they are providing accurate and consistent information to all callers. This can help streamline the intake process and reduce the risk of errors or miscommunication.
  • Analytics: In addition to these services, a mass tort answering service can also provide valuable data and analytics to the legal team. Call center software can track call volume, call duration, and other metrics that can help attorneys understand the scope of the case and identify areas where additional support may be needed.

When dealing with the high volume of calls and inquiries that arise during a mass tort case, an answering service can be an invaluable tool. These services streamline the legal process by providing a centralized point of contact for plaintiffs, attorneys, and other stakeholders.

Benefits of Using a Mass Tort Answering Service

There are many benefits to partnering with an answering service for mass torts. Here are some of the most significant advantages:

  1. Professional and Efficient Call Management: With a mass tort answering service, you can delegate call management to a professional third-party service provider. This way, you and your staff can focus on essential tasks, such as case preparation and legal research, while the answering service manages call screening, intake, and management. The answering service provides efficient and professional call management, reducing the likelihood of missed calls and providing prompt responses to inquiries from claimants and other stakeholders.
  2. Improved Scalability: As the number of potential claimants in a mass tort case grows, so does the volume of inquiries and phone calls. A mass tort answering service can provide scalability, enabling you to handle large volumes of incoming calls and inquiries without requiring additional staff.
  3. Improved Client Experience: A mass tort answering service can provide claimants with a positive experience when contacting the law firm, even during times of high stress and anxiety. The answering service can provide prompt responses, ensure that callers are connected with the right people, and provide reassurance and support throughout the claims process. A positive client experience can improve client satisfaction, leading to better word-of-mouth recommendations and improved brand reputation for your law firm.
  4. Improved Cost Control: Managing a mass tort case can be expensive, particularly when the case involves a large number of claimants. Using a mass tort answering service can help your law firm manage costs more effectively. The answering service can provide an efficient and cost-effective way to manage incoming calls and inquiries, reducing the need for additional staff and resources.

As you can see, there are many benefits to partnering with a mass tort answering service. From improving scalability to enhancing client experience and improving data management, these services can provide valuable support and enable your firm to manage cases more effectively and efficiently.

Toxic Baby Formula Lawsuit

Posted on Tuesday, December 27th, 2022 at 8:40 am    

Need a toxic baby formula lawsuit intake specialist? If your Law firm is seeking clients related to baby formula and NEC, it is important that your intake team understands the emotional and delicate nature of these cases. At Legal Conversion Center, our legal intake services are provided by highly trained intake professionals. Our team knows how important it is to be compassionate while effectively guiding potential clients through the intake process. We can handle your intake needs so you can focus on your clients.

Lawsuit Information

Studies dating back to the 1990s suggest that feeding premature babies cow’s milk-based formulas can increase the risk of NEC substantially. In 2011, the U.S. Surgeon General’s office reported that, among vulnerable premature babies, “formula feeding is associated with higher rates of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).” In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics also stated that premature babies should only receive human-based milk (breast milk) due to the risk of NEC associated with cow’s milk-based formulas.

As if the NEC risk alone isn’t bad enough, manufacturers of potentially toxic baby formula have failed to include a warning on their product labels, or provide guidance to healthcare providers on how to reduce the risk of NEC. As a result, angered parents and caregivers have filed lawsuits against manufacturers like Abbott Laboratories, Inc. (Similac) and Mead Johnson & Company, LLC (Enfamil). Baby formula lawsuits contain causes of action including:

  • Product Liability for Design Defect
  • Failure to Warn
  • Negligence
  • Intentional Misrepresentation
  • Breach of Warranty
  • Wrongful Death

The strongest argument in these lawsuits is the fact that research finding show a clear correlation between cow’s milk-based formulas and NEC, but formula manufacturers continued to manufacture and sell the products without a warning. Plaintiffs contend that the manufacturers knew, or should have known, about the risk of NEC but intentionally failed to place adequate warnings on product labels.

What is Necrotizing Enterocolitis?

If your law firm’s intake team is screening potential clients for NEC-related cases, it is important that your team knows what NEC is. NEC is a gastrointestinal disease that occurs mostly in premature babies. Babies at the highest risk are those born weighing less than 3.25 pounds who receive baby formula during the first days and/or weeks of life.

Experts believe that cow’s milk-based formulas cause buildup and inflammation in the intestines because the premature baby’s body cannot process it properly. As a result of the inflammation, the intestinal wall can erode or die (necrosis). This can lead to bowel perforations, infections, sepsis, and death. Since a premature baby’s immune system cannot fight off bacteria, infections can be fatal.

Parents and healthcare providers should monitor premature babies closely if they are being fed cow’s milk-based formula or fortifier. Symptoms of NEC can include:

  • Tender, red, or swollen stomach
  • Abdominal pressure
  • Temperature fluctuations
  • Diarrhea (often with blood)
  • Abnormal breathing
  • Low blood pressure

NEC is fatal in around 50% of cases due to bacteria leaking into the abdomen. Babies that do survive often experience long-term health complications. It is truly devastating for families to suffer a tragic illness or loss due to a product they trusted as safe and healthy.

What Products are Included in Baby Formula Lawsuits?

There are numerous baby formula brands and varieties listed in toxic baby formula lawsuits. Some of the most well-known formulas include:

  • Enfamil NeuroPro EnfaCare
  • Enfamil Human Milk Fortifier
  • Enfamil 24 Cal
  • Similac Special Care 20
  • Similac NeoSure
  • Similac Liquid Protein Fortifier
  • Similac Special Care 24
  • Similac Special Care 30
  • Similac Special Care 24 – High Protein

Not all baby formulas have the same risk of NEC as these products. However, as lawsuits continue to be filed, more brands and varieties of formula continue to be added to the list of potentially dangerous products.

There are currently no baby formula recalls directly related to NEC, but parents should be careful to monitor recalls and safety alerts if they use formula.

Accepting Toxic Baby Formula Lawsuit Clients?

Law firms across the U.S. continue to investigate potential lawsuits related to Enfamil and Similac infant formulas. If your law firm is looking to acquire NEC cases, Legal Conversion Center can help. Our approach is simple – we handle screening, qualifying, and retaining potential clients so you can focus on getting the justice your clients deserve.

At LCC, we understand the balance between offering a compassionate listening ear while also guiding clients through the intake process.

NEC-related cases are difficult, but with LLC on your side, you can have peace of mind that your potential clients are being treated with dignity and respect.

Roundup Lawsuit Intake Specialist

Posted on Tuesday, December 27th, 2022 at 8:04 am    

A Legal Conversion Center roundup lawsuit intake specialist will qualify potential clients in a timely and efficient manner. We provide a 24/7 legal intake service that can fit your needs and goals. Roundup is one of the world’s most used agricultural weed killers. The glyphosate-based herbicide is used across the United States to control weeds.

Unfortunately, thousands of consumers who have used Roundup have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other types of cancer. Tens of thousands of lawsuits have been filed by consumers who have developed cancer and other illnesses after using, or being exposed to, Roundup.

Estimates suggest there have been more than 125,000 Roundup claims. There are nearly 4,000 claims still pending in Federal Court, and consumers continue to come forward. If you are considering representing clients with Roundup cancer lawsuits, contact the intake experts at Legal Conversion Center.

Why Plaintiffs are Filing Roundup Lawsuits

Research shows that exposure to certain herbicides can increase the risk of cancer. In 2001 and 2009 studies found that consumers exposed to certain levels of glyphosate had a higher chance of developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen, meaning it has the potential to cause cancer. The 2015 study was limited to agricultural workers who had used glyphosate-containing herbicides, including Roundup.

Despite growing research showing a link between glyphosate and cancer, Monsanto continued to market Roundup without warning consumers of the potential carcinogenic risks of product use or exposure.

Naturally concerned and angered by Monsanto’s (and now Bayer’s) lack of warning or acknowledging a correlation between glyphosate and cancer, numerous individuals have come forward claiming that they developed cancer after exposure to Roundup. Litigation began in 2018, but there are still thousands of pending cases. Hundreds of millions of dollars have already been awarded to clients who have developed cancer and successfully proved that Roundup and/or glyphosate were the cause.

The first complaint was filed against Monsanto in 2018, which resulted in a verdict of $289 million in favor of the plaintiff who developed cancer after using Roundup as a school groundskeeper. Since then, tens of thousands of claims have been filed, including claims that victims developed:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • B or T-Cell Lymphoma Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
  • Hairy Cell Lymphoma
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma

In addition to cancers, there are many healthcare experts who believe that glyphosate can also contribute to:

  • Liver and Kidney Damage
  • Birth Defects
  • Infertility
  • DNA Damage
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Skin Tumors
  • Thyroid Damage

As you can see, there is a massive potential for legal clients looking for recovery from the harmful effects of Roundup and glyphosate. Don’t miss out on the chance to acquire Roundup lawsuit clients – contact LCC for your Roundup intake needs.

What is Roundup Weedkiller?

Roundup is an herbicide that contains the chemical glyphosate. Glyphosate is widely used in agriculture because it is inexpensive and effective at killing weeds and unwanted plants. The product works by attacking EPSP synthase, an enzyme found in plants. Stopping the enzyme will effectively prevent the plants from producing enzymes and growth proteins, which causes them to die.

Roundup was introduced to the consumer market in 1974 by Monsanto. The company has long argued that since only plants contain the EPSP synthase enzyme, that Roundup would only be harmful to the plants. In 2018, amid Roundup lawsuits, Monsanto was bought by Bayer. Now, Bayer has inherited the ongoing legal battles that began years ago.

Roundup Lawsuit Update

Roundup lawsuits have continued to be filed since 2018. A number of verdicts and settlements have been reached. In June 2020, Bayer announced a $10 billion settlement that would resolve most of the remaining Roundup lawsuits against Monsanto, as well as future lawsuits. The settlement negotiations involved 27 law firms across the United States. It is estimated that this settlement could resolve as many as 125,000 filed and unfiled claims.

In February 2021, Bayer agreed to yet another settlement – this one for $2 billion for future Roundup cancer lawsuits. The settlement agrees to cover victims diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma who were exposed to Roundup prior to diagnosis.

5 Lead Generation Tactics For Mass Tort Practices

Posted on Monday, October 10th, 2022 at 11:34 am    

If your law firm has decided to target and advertise for mass tort cases, you may find that marketing in this area is a bit different from other cases. In order to reach mass tort clients, you must be able to stand up against the competition. Your marketing must also target the specific needs of mass tort clients.

Lead generation is one of the most important marketing strategies for mass tort practices. Unfortunately, it can also be difficult due to the competition. The good news is that there are many lead generation tactics that Legal Conversion Center can help you with. In this article, we review 5 lead generation tactics for mass tort practices that are almost always successful.  

Practices for Lead Generation

The key to marketing for mass torts is recognizing that not all marketing channels will yield the same results. That’s why it is a great idea of use a variety of marketing tactics that ensure you have all of your ‘bases’ covered. Our top recommendations are SEO (search engine optimization), SEM (search engine marketing), content marketing, digital display ads, and buying leads.

1. SEO

Search engine optimization, or SEO, is the process of increasing traffic to your website using a series of targeted tactics. These tactics are designed to meet the requirements of search engine algorithms, which directly affects how visible your website is on search engine results pages. The higher you rank on search engine results pages, the more likely that potential clients will click on your page.

For mass tort cases, successful SEO depends heavily on targeted keywords. For example, if you are targeting Camp LeJeune contaminated water clients, you should target your SEO to terms like “Camp LeJeune contaminated water lawsuit” or “Camp LeJeune contaminated water lawyer.” Using more generic terms like “Camp LeJeune contaminated water” will direct the potential client to more informative news content, rather than the legal help they are really looking for. 

2. SEM

Search engine marketing, SEM, is a marketing tactic that utilizes paid advertisements to boost your ranking or position in search engine results. You have probably noticed the ads at the top of Google’s search result page when you enter a term like “mass tort lawyer.” SEM is a process that allows you to bid for search terms you want to rank for. The more competition there is for that search term, the higher the bid will cost. That’s why it is often recommended to target less competitive terms that could still yield results.

3. Content Marketing

A great way to rank higher in search results pages and get more attention to your practice is by adding valuable content to your website that is specific to the mass tort you are targeting. If the majority of your site features personal injury content, then you likely will not rank well for specific terms like “Camp LeJeune,” “water contamination,” or “water contamination lawsuit.”

The goal with your content marketing is to answer questions (searches) that potential clients may be asking:

  • Do I qualify for a contaminated water claim?
  • I was stationed at Camp LeJeune, what now?
  • Why are people filing lawsuits against Camp LeJeune”
  • What is a contaminated water lawsuit?

Next, remember that many potential clients may not be aware that they qualify for a mass tort claim, and may not be aware of current litigation. By providing useful and informative content related to the direct issue and related issues, you are putting your law firm in the path of more readers, and, therefore, more potential leads.

4. YouTube Marketing

Increasingly, video is becoming one of the most efficient means of marketing and generating leads. For mass tort practices, this could be valuable because it puts your message in front of a wider audience. More specifically, YouTube’s pre-rolls are a great way to generate leads. Pre-rolls are the short videos that play before a video. With more than 300 million viewers each day, YouTube is a great way to market specifically to the audience that you want to reach, and put a face to the name. Some surveys suggest that more than 50% of marketing professionals see a better return on investment (ROI) through YouTube marketing than other channels.

5. Buying Leads

Buying leads is another strategy that many mass tort practices choose to utilize in order to get quality leads. This process is more expensive, however, and may not be effective for every law firm. Buying leads can generate potential clients by using lawyer referrals, lawyer listings, and legal matching databases. Each of these services have fees, and may be slower to generate results. You should also be aware that there are some American Bar Association (ABA) standards and guidelines that you must follow if you want to buy leads.

Get More Mass Tort Leads

Mass tort law is a valuable practice area that helps clients who are truly deserving of compensation and justice. But before your law firm can help those clients, you must be able to reach them successfully. That’s where the above lead generation tactics come into play.

Once you have an influx of potential mass tort clients, Legal Conversion Center can help you manage, qualify, and sign potential leads. Our mass torts intake services provide your law firm with the support you need to grow and convert those leads into clients.

Zantac Cancer Lawsuits

Posted on Monday, March 28th, 2022 at 6:54 pm    

Zantac cancer lawsuits allege Zantic causes cancer. Since the FDA pulled ranitidine and Zantac from the market, thousands of consumers have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers – GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, and Boehringer Ingelheim. Your law firm has the expertise needed to help clients with Zantac lawsuits and mass tort litigation, but do you have the bandwidth to handle the influx of leads you will undoubtedly get from a Zantac lawsuit campaign? 

Let Legal Conversion Center handle your intake needs so you can focus on your clients. Our legal intake service takes care of screening and qualifying leads, and getting your clients in touch with your law firm. Contact us to learn more about our intake and acquisition services. 

In 2019, the U.S. and Europe began reviewing the safety of products containing ranitidine after tests showed samples contained trace amounts of NDMA. NDMA is classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a probable human carcinogen, meaning it has the potential to cause cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also considers NDMA and the related family of N-nitrosamines to be “potent carcinogens.”

Types of Cancer Caused by Zantac

Since 2019, thousands of consumers across the U.S. have filed lawsuits claiming that ranitidine and Zantac manufacturers knew, or should have known, that their products were contaminated with a probable carcinogen. Zantac cancer lawsuits claim that victims have developed:

  • Stomach Cancer
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Intestinal Cancer
  • Colon and Rectal Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Intestinal Cancer
  • Esophageal Cancer

In addition to potentially causing cancer, according to the NIH NDMA has also been linked to liver damage, even after short-term exposure to ranitidine or Zantac.

So many consumers have come forward that Zantac class-action lawsuits have also been filed. This underscores the enormity of potential litigation as more consumers come forward.

If your law firm is seeking to acquire plaintiffs for a Zantac class-action lawsuit, Legal Conversion Center can help you qualify and retain clients. Our legal intake specialists are highly trained in how to screen clients for potentially complex legal matters like class-action lawsuits.

Why Are People Filing Zantac Cancer Lawsuits?

Research has confirmed that some products containing ranitidine, including Zantac, are contaminated with NDMA. In laboratory tests in 2019, an online pharmacy called Valisure tested ranitidine products and found excessively high levels of NDMA.

Tests showed some ranitidine pills had more than 3,000,000 ng (nanograms) per tablet. This is far more than the FDA’s allowed daily intake of just 96 ng. In their own tests, the FDA also found low levels of NDMA that were still above the acceptable daily intake.

What is NDMA?

NDMA is a chemical that is most often used in industrial processes. It can form during the treatment of wastewater with chlorine products. At one time, NDMA was used in the production of rocket fuel, additives for lubricants, softeners for copolymers, and antioxidants. It has been found in byproducts from pesticide manufacturing, rubber and tire manufacturing, foundries, and other industrial processes.

NDMA can also occur naturally. It is found naturally in soil, water, air, and some food products, but at extremely low levels. It can also form when bacteria in soil synthesize certain substances.

Scientists believe that NDMA in ranitidine products was formed when the ranitidine molecule reacted to something during manufacturing, storage, or consumption.

Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Posted on Monday, March 14th, 2022 at 7:01 pm    

Talcum powder products have been on the market for decades. During that time, millions of people have used the products for personal hygiene. More recently, talcum-based products, including the popular Johnson’s Baby Powder have been linked to an increased risk of cancer and mesothelioma. This, in turn, has resulted in tens of thousands of talcum powder lawsuits being filed.

The link between talcum-based products and cancer has resulted in thousands of consumers filing lawsuits against talc product manufacturers. Johnson & Johnson is perhaps the most well-known manufacturer, and the company remains at the center of numerous lawsuits.

Talcum powder lawsuits have already resulted in substantial awards for consumers. However, consumers continue to file lawsuits. If your law firm is aiming to acquire Johnson & Johnson talcum powder lawsuit clients, Legal Conversion Center can help you qualify leads and get more conversions.

At Legal Conversion Center, our legal intake services are customized to the needs of your law firm. We offer a variety of intake and client acquisition services that screen leads and transform them into actual clients. Learn more about how we can help your law firm get more clients by contacting us today.

Why Plaintiffs are Filing Talcum Powder Lawsuits

Since 1971, tests have shown that talcum powder products from manufacturers including Johnson & Johnson contained small amounts of asbestos. A report in 2018 revealed that Johnson & Johnson had records of products testing positive for asbestos dating back to at least 1971. However, the company never made that information known to regulators or consumers.

Once a 2018 Reuters investigation was published, consumers began coming forward and filing lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson. These talcum powder lawsuits allege that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn consumers that using talcum powder increased the risk of certain cancers and mesothelioma.

As of 2021, there were more than 36,000 lawsuits pending against talcum powder product manufacturers. Millions of dollars have already been awarded to victims and their loved ones, but given the extensive use of talcum-based products, there is no doubt that more lawsuits will be filed. 

Types of Cancer Caused by Talcum Powder Products

The most serious injuries reported in these lawsuits include ovarian cancer and mesothelioma:

Ovarian Cancer

women who have developed ovarian cancer after regular use of talcum powder products. Talcum powder is commonly used for personal hygiene, and women often apply it to the genital area. Studies now suggest that particles of talcum powder can enter the ovaries through the vagina. Experts believe that particles in contact with the mucus membranes cause inflammation and can suppress certain antibodies that prevent protect against cancer. Researchers estimate that regular use of talcum powder products in the genital area could increase the risk of ovarian cancer by 30-60 percent.


Many lawsuits also claim that victims developed mesothelioma due to inhaling talcum powder during use. The connection between talc and mesothelioma is that talc naturally contains asbestos, which is a known carcinogen. With talcum powder particles being so fine, they are easily made airborne and can be inhaled into the lungs.

Understanding Talc and Asbestos

Talc and asbestos are both naturally occurring minerals. As a powder, talc absorbs moisture and reduces friction. This is why talcum powder products are so commonly used for infants to prevent diaper rash, and among men and women looking to stop chafing or irritation.

Talc naturally contains asbestos, which is a mineral that is known to cause cancer, respiratory illness, and mesothelioma. In 1976, the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrances Association (CTFA) created guidelines for the cosmetics industry stating that cosmetic and personal care products that contain talc should be free from detectable amounts of asbestos.

Warnings about asbestos and talc have continued since the 1970s, but manufacturers have continued to market their products without adequate warnings.

What Products Contain Talc?

Manufacturers have not only failed to warn regulators and consumers about the risks of using talc, but they have also continued to develop and market numerous products that contain talc. These products include well-known brands like Gold Bond, Shower to Shower, Nivea, Summer’s Eve, and Johnson’s Baby Powder. Some of the most commonly used products include:

  • Baby Powder
  • Baby Lotion
  • Adult Lotion
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Cosmetics (Foundation, Eye Shadow, etc.)
  • Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Household Cleaning Supplies

Many consumers who have used these products have trusted them for decades without having an inkling that their health was at risk.

Philip’s CPAP Recall Lawsuits

Posted on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022 at 10:46 pm    

A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine is a common medical device used at home. A bilevel positive airway pressure, or BiPAP machine, is another less common device. CPAP and BiPAP machines treat breathing problems like sleep apnea, which affect 3-7% of the population. CPAP machines offer continuous airflow through the nose and/or mouth, which helps the patient sleep better. Even more importantly, however, a CPAP reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack, or low blood pressure.

legal conversion center call specialist

Recently, Philips Respironics has come under scrutiny after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of thousands of CPAP and BiPAP machines. Popular Philips CPAP and BiPAP machines are being recalled due to the soundproofing foam in the machines breaking down and potentially entering the device air pathway. As a result, users could inhale toxic chemicals like polyurethane, diethlyene glycol, and volatile organic compounds.

Lawsuits are already being filed by Philips CPAP users. There are numerous individual lawsuits and at least one class action lawsuit. It is unlikely that the momentum will stop any time soon. If your law firm is interested in acquiring Philips CPAP lawsuit clients, you should act quickly to get ahead of the curve. Patients injured by defective CPAP machines may qualify for compensation and will be seeking the help of a skilled law firm.

At Legal Conversion Center, our legal intake service can make sure that your law firm is ready to take on an influx of Philips CPAP lawsuit 0.clients. Our team can handle your intake needs so you can focus on providing the effective legal counsel your clients need.

Claims Asserted in Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuits

Plaintiffs suing Philips are doing so under products liability laws. Plaintiffs assert the following claims:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Failure to warn
  • Breach of express warranty
  • Breach of implied warranty
  • Negligence

These lawsuits claim that Philips knew the foam had potential to degrade, but failed to warn consumers. Lawsuits claim that Philips either concealed the risk, or ignored it.

The Philips CPAP and BiPAP recall affects more than four million devices. They were available in hospitals and for at-home use by millions of consumers. Because of the nature of the potential injuries, it is almost certain that the influx of lawsuits will result in mass tort litigation.

Plaintiffs’ law firms will be an asset to injured consumers who have a right to demand Philips be held accountable. If even a fraction of consumers affected by the recall develop serious illness due to these devices, the resulting litigation could be among the biggest in mass tort history.

Make sure your law firm is ready to help Philips CPAP and BiPAP clients by working with Legal Conversion Center. We can help you with intake and contract acquisition of clients seeking compensation from Philips.  

Why are Philips CPAP Machines Being Recalled?

The Philips CPAP and BiPAP recall follows evidence that portions of the device can degrade and break down. More specifically, the soundproofing foam inside the unit can bread down and tiny particles can enter the air pathway. The specialized foam is made from polyester-based polyurethane, which can be toxic if ingested.

Lawsuits claim that consumers have been harmed while using the machines, or while cleaning them. Victims claim they have developed severe lung damage from foam particles released by the device during use or cleaning. The chemicals in the soundproofing foam are carcinogenic, meaning they may cause cancer.  

With no filter to prevent particles from reaching the user’s airways and lungs, patients are also at risk for medical conditions including:

  • Lung damage
  • Kidney or liver damage
  • Inflammation of the airways
  • Skin, eye, and nose irritation
  • Asthma
  • Cough
  • Dizziness
  • Headache

Intake Specialists for Paraquat Lawsuits

Posted on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022 at 10:34 pm    

Need intake specialists for Paraquat lawsuits? Paraquat (Grameoxone) is an herbicide primarily used on commercial farms. In October 2017, plaintiffs filed a Paraquat lawsuit against the manufacturers claiming that they developed Parkinson’s disease after being exposed to the herbicide. The two manufacturers, Syngenta and Growmark, as well as Chevron Chemical, are listed as defendants in what is now dozens of lawsuits. 

With hundreds of Paraquat lawsuits already in multidistrict litigation (MDL), there is little doubt that more plaintiffs will come forward. At Legal Conversion Center, our legal intake specialists can help your law firm prepare to represent clients in Paraquat lawsuits.

Contact us to find out how we can help you with your legal intake needs.

Why Plaintiffs are Filing Paraquat Lawsuits

Since the original lawsuit filed in 2017, dozens more plaintiffs have come forward to tell their stories. There are approximately 736 lawsuits in multidistrict litigation (MDL). The cases are currently in pretrial proceedings in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

Paraquat Parkinson’s lawsuits claim that plaintiffs exposed to Paraquat have developed serious health complications, including Parkinson’s disease. When Paraquat comes in contact with the mouth, stomach, or intestines, it can cause direct damage. As the chemicals move through the body, they damage and destroy healthy cells.

There is considerable research linking Paraquat exposure to Parkinson’s disease. In 2017, the Unified Parkinson’s Advocacy Council sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for the ban of the herbicide. Research published in various journals also points to the link between Paraquat and Parkinson’s disease, including research in the National Institute of Environmental Health Services, The American Journal of Epidemiology, and JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) Neurology.

How Does Paraquat Cause Parkinson’s Disease?

Paraquat causes oxidative stress, which leads to the destruction of healthy cells when it enters the body. Remaining cells then are altered, which causes further damage and death. Parkinson’s disease develops when there is a functional loss of dopamine neuron cells in the brain. These cells are particularly vulnerable to oxidative stress and are, therefore, more likely to be affected by exposure to Paraquat.

Individuals who have genetic precursors or other risk factors for Parkinson’s disease are even more at risk of developing the disease after exposure.

If an individual is exposed to Paraquat and survives initial ingestion, they may experience a variety of symptoms and medical conditions, including:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Pulmonary edema
  • Liver failure
  • Kidney failure
  • Heart failure
  • Nerve damage
  • Seizures
  • Respiratory failure

Individuals at risk for Paraquat injuries like Parkinson’s disease are those in regular contact with the herbicide. Agricultural workers on commercial farms and workers exposed in manufacturing are most likely to have been exposed.

The History of Paraquat

Paraquat is a commercial herbicide that is used to kill grass and weeds. The toxic chemical compound is dangerous to humans. In fact, the EPA categorizes Paraquat as “restricted use”. That means it should only be used by individuals holding a license, such as those in the commercial agricultural industry.

Paraquat was developed in 1961 for the purposes of commercial use. By the 1970’s, the herbicide was already at the center of public health concern. In the 1980’s, Paraquat was used on marijuana fields in Mexico to kill the crops. The United States provided helicopters and funding for the massive spraying. Consequently, marijuana harvested in these fields was then transported into the U.S., where it was sold and subsequently consumed by humans.

Though it is harmful to humans, Paraquat has caused injuries to numerous individuals who were exposed by a variety of means, including ingestion and inhalation. In 2020, the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) pushed for legislation to ban herbicides and pesticides like Paraquat that are known to cause illness and injury. The bill, “Protect America’s Children from Toxic Pesticides Act of 2020”, or PACTA, is the first comprehensive pesticide use law proposed in decades.

Experts estimate that banning Paraquat and similar toxic substances could reduce the risk of Parkinson’s disease. Experts estimate that exposure to the chemicals in Paraquat increases the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease by 320%.

Dozens of countries have banned Paraquat use, with research showing ingesting even a sip of the chemical could be fatal. Unfortunately, in the U.S., Paraquat has not been banned, and in fact, continues to be widely used. Some reports even suggest its use is on the rise.
