Have you recently purchased hair relaxer or chemical hair straightening products? Do you know someone who has? If so, please contact the lawyers at Parafinczuk Wolf 954-462-6700. We are investigating claims that these products were deceptively marketed and sold to consumers.

Hair Relaxer Lawsuit

A recent study by the National Institutes of Health found that use of chemical hair-straightening products places women at a higher risk of developing uterine cancer than those who do not use such products. The study found that women who reported frequent use of hair-straightening products were more than twice as likely to develop uterine cancer compared with those who did not use the products.

Che-Jung Chang, one of the study’s authors, noted that the findings are especially relevant for Black women because they "use hair straightening or relaxer products more frequently and tend to initiate use at earlier ages than other races and ethnicities."

Uterine cancer accounts for just over 3 percent of all new cancer cases in the United States, according to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, with recent studies showing incidence rates on the rise in the country, particularly among Black women.

Compensation in a Hair Relaxer Lawsuit

If you or your loved one used chemical hair straightening products or hair relaxers and were diagnosed with uterine cancer and/or uterine fibroids, we will be seeking the following damages for you:

  • Past and future medical expenses to treat your injuries.
  • Past and future pain and suffering resulting from your injuries, both from a physical and mental standpoint.
  • Wage loss, if any.
  • Other economic losses experienced because of your injuries.
  • Punitive damages, if appropriate.
