Defective Conagra cooking sprays the subject of lawsuits

Georgia residents should know that Pam and other cooking sprays have been linked to certain injury cases, some extending back to mid-2017. Six lawsuits were filed in the Cook County Circuit Court against Conagra, the Chicago-based company that makes these sprays. The victims all allege that the cooking spray exploded and burned them when they placed it near a stove or grill top. One of the plaintiffs was even blinded in one eye.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has linked over 30 infant deaths since 2009 to the Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleeper, causing the toy company to issue a recall of its product.

Fatal crash sparks concerns about Tesla's semi-autonomous cars

Some tech-minded car buyers in Georgia have a tendency to pay more attention to vehicles that offer the latest features.

Does talcum powder have asbestos in it?

At a trial held in St. Louis, MO in July of 2018, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay twenty two women over four billion dollars in damages after they developed ovarian cancer.

Are dangerous products in the homes of Georgia residents?

Children's toys, canned goods and blenders are just some of the items that fill Georgia homes.

Do your child's crayons pose risk for asbestosis?

Hundreds of thousands of private settlements have been made over product liability claims related to asbestos.

Manufacturer's medication mix-up could cause irreparable harm

One of the most prevalent chronic conditions patients here in Georgia and elsewhere suffer from is high blood pressure. The medication options for helping control this issue are numerous, and it could take a period of trial and error for a doctor and patient to find the right medication, or combination of medications, that works. This makes the possibility of a manufacturer's medication mix-up even more distressing since a patient could suffer irreparable harm through no fault of the doctor or the patient.

Products liability concern as heart medication linked to cancer

One side effect of growing older is that many Georgia residents find it necessary to take prescription medication in order to control their blood pressure as well as other health-related concerns. The purpose of such medication is to lower the individual's blood pressure and prevent medical complications. Yet, when this medication adds to the individual's medical concerns, there may be a products liability concern that needs to be addressed.
