Taxotere & Permanent Hair Loss
Taxotere is a chemotherapy drug used for the treatment of breast cancer. One study that analyzed the effects of Taxotere found that up to 9.2% of women treated with the drug experience PERMANENT hair loss, which should not occur. Sanofi-Aventis bears the responsibility for warning women who choose to use the drug to treat their breast cancer that Taxotere has a high risk of causing permanent hair loss. BKC is currently investigating potential claims for women who were treated for breast cancer with Taxotere and suffered permanent hair loss. The physical and emotional pain that women with breast cancer endure throughout their treatment is severe on its own. Adding the trauma of permanent hair loss can be devastating. Women who have suffered from such an experience should be heavily compensated for their loss. Contact BKC to learn more.
GM Ignition Switch Failure
BKC is taking a leading role in the litigation against General Motors over its faulty ignition switches. For years, GM used a faulty ignition switch in numerous car models. The faulty switch could cause the car to lose power while driving. The loss of power turned off power steering and airbags, among other safety systems. GM then engaged in a cover-up to hide the defect. If you or a loved one was harmed in a crash where a GM vehicle lost power and crashed, contact BKC to find out more about your rights.
Exploding Takata Airbags
Barrios, Kingsdorf & Casteix is on the forefront of the litigation against Takata and 11 car manufacturers for their use of Takata's faulty airbags. Takata's faulty airbags, used by car makers like Honda and BMW, can explode in a crash rather than deploying normally, causing hot shrapnel to fly at and injure or kill the passengers. If you or a loved one has one of these affected cars (see www.explodingairbagrecall.net), contact BKC to learn about your rights.
Low-T Treatments and Blood Clots
BKC is taking a leading role in the litigation against the makers of testosterone replacement therapies like Androgel. This class of drugs is frequently mis-prescribed and can cause serious blood clots that result in, among other injuries, heart attacks and strokes. If you or a loved one took a "low-T" treatment like Androgel and suffered from a blood clot, contact BKC to learn about your rights.
