Chemical Hair Straightener Cancer Lawsuits

Holding Product Manufacturers Accountable for Negligence

Emerging research has made a concerning connection between chemical hair straightening products and various forms of cancer, including uterine cancer. It appears that the chemical substances used in these products can be extremely dangerous when exposure to them is significant or repeated. Now, people across the country are looking to take legal action.

‘MAGGIO LAW in Jackson is proud to be one of the region’s leading product liability law firms. Our attorneys are currently investigating the unfolding situation to get a better understanding of the connection between chemical hair straighteners and cancer. If you think your cancer was caused by one of these products, then please call (601) 265-6869 now. The more people that we hear from with similar stories, the stronger each potential lawsuit against hair product makers will become.

Cancer Linked to Chemical Hair Straightening Products

The Journal of the National Cancer Institute recently published a study that found a connection between chemical hair straightening products and cancer. Nearly 34,000 women were highlighted in the study because women use chemical hair straighteners overwhelmingly more frequently than men. Furthermore, Black women are statistically more likely to use these products when compared to other female demographics; the study included about 20,000 participants who self-identified as Black.

Based on the outcome of the study:

  • Women who did not use chemical hair straighteners had a 1.6% risk of developing uterine cancer by age 70.
  • Women who did use chemical hair straighteners had a 4% risk of developing uterine cancer by age 70.
  • The longer a woman used a chemical hair straightener, the more likely she would develop uterine cancer by age 70.

This early data suggests that the use of chemical hair straightening products more than doubles the risk of developing uterine cancer. The risk of other forms of cancer was not reported because the study focused exclusively on uterine cancer, which was the most prevalent among the participants.

With such a significant increase in the risk, researchers have determined that there is a probable link between the two. More research will need to be done to make a definitive conclusion. However, women can take legal action now.

Who Can File a Hair Straightener Cancer Lawsuit?

Legal action against chemical hair straightener product makers is only just beginning, but there is no such thing as preparing too early for a lawsuit. If you think you have a valid claim after being diagnosed with uterine cancer, then please reach out to our firm.

A valid chemical hair straightener-uterine cancer lawsuit plaintiff will likely meet these criteria:

  • Used chemical hair straightener products for at least one year.
  • Experienced at least one of the following cancers:
    • Uterine Cancer
    • Endometrial or
    • Ovarian Cancer

Uterine Cancer Lawsuit Compensation

The compensation available to chemical hair straightener cancer claimants is yet to be determined. However, it can be assumed that claims could seek damages related to cancer treatment costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, and shortened life expectancy.

If enough people come forward with similar claims, then it might be possible that one or more class action lawsuits form against hair product manufacturers. In that case, any compensation secured will be distributed among the plaintiff class.
