Hair Straightener class action

Have you been affected by the beauty industry because you use hair straightening products? If so, you might qualify for a lawsuit. At Shamis & Gentile, P.A., we are currently processing several of these claims and offer free consultations for potential new clients.

We believe that the beauty industry is responsible for providing fair warning on their labels, concerning the various side effects consumers might experience when using their products. Nobody deserves a life-threatening disease in their pursuit of beauty and self-care.

If you or a loved one has suffered harm from hair straightening products, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. Keep reading to learn who is eligible to seek compensation.

Uterine Fibroids and Related Diseases

At the moment, Shamis & Gentile, P.A., are looking into specific cases where clients have contracted uterine fibroids due to their use of hair straightening products from companies such as L’Oreal and others.

Our investigations have led us to conclude that the practice of using dangerous and toxic chemicals in their beauty products has been ongoing for more than a decade, ultimately resulting in consumers developing cancer, uterine fibroids, and a range of other issues.

In particular, we are currently focusing on manufacturers that have not properly disclosed the potential side effects, leading to consumers believing the product was safer than it actually was.

If you have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids or experienced other health issues after using hair straightening products, you may have a legal claim for compensation. Our dedicated team at Shamis & Gentile, P.A. is here to provide you with the support and representation you need to seek justice.

Claim Eligibility

We are interested in hearing from people who have used hair relaxer products in the past decade and have experienced severe side effects as a result. In some cases, our clients have needed medical surgery or expensive operations due to their complications, and this could qualify them for being eligible to file a lawsuit, seeking monetary compensation and legal justice.

Shamis & Gentile, P.A., currently offers free consultations where we can help you discover whether you are eligible and, if so, help build your case from the ground up. Together, we can ensure that these companies are held responsible, and you stand a chance of getting your medical expenses covered while also affecting change on a larger scale by forcing legislation or legal rulings that would help prevent other people from suffering in the future.

For clients to be eligible, we will typically need to see proof of the medical condition and evidence in the form of receipts or testimony that you have been using hair straightening products frequently. This typically requires clients to have been using hair relaxers at least 4 times per year.

Our experienced attorneys will then work diligently on the best possible strategy for your specific case, which might involve negotiating a settlement with the responsible parties or taking the case to trial if necessary. Due to statutes of limitations, your claim might only be eligible for a set amount of time.
