Hair Relaxer Cancer Lawsuit

Studies performed by researchers at the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) and the National Institutes of Health suggest that consumers who regularly use chemical hair relaxers and straighteners are more than twice as likely to develop uterine or endometrial cancer, as well as additional health risks such as fibroids, endometriosis, or infertility. The initial study examined data from more than 33,000 participants between the ages of 35 and 74 and determined that women who used chemical hair straightening products at least four times a year or more had a 4.05% risk factor of developing uterine cancer. When compared to the estimated risk of 1.64% for individuals who have never used hair straighteners, researchers behind the study noted the increased rate as “concerning.” Black and Hispanic women are particular vulnerable to these risks, as they statistically use more caustic formulations of hair relaxers more frequently and at earlier ages than other races and ethnicities. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer from exposure to hair relaxers, please fill out our free case review form or contact us at (312) 261-6193.

What are hair relaxers?

Hair relaxers are a type of lotion or cream consumers can purchase over the counter to make their hair easier to straighten and manage. While many different brands and formulas of hair relaxers exist, many contain caustic and potentially carcinogenic compounds such as parabens, bisphenol A, heavy metals, and formaldehyde.

Uterine/Endometrial Cancer

Uterine sarcoma and endometrial cancer are two types of cancer that form in the uterus. Uterine cancer forms when healthy cells in the uterus change and grow rapidly, forming a mass of tissue called a tumor. Malignant tumors can grow and spread throughout the body, creating a significant health risk. It’s estimated that nearly 13,000 women die from uterine cancer each year in the U.S. Because uterine sarcoma and endometrial cancer affect the same area, it can be difficult to tell them apart. However, there are a number of early warning signs to be aware of:

  • Painless, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin
  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting between periods or postmenopause
  • Lower abdominal pain or cramping in the pelvis
  • Bloody or watery discharge
  • Pain during urination or sexual intercourse
  • Unintentional weight loss

What is an intentional tort?

The burden of proof for an intentional tort is different than for a negligence tort; no proof of damage or injury is required. The plaintiff only needs to show that the act was premeditated (intentional) and provocative or insulting.

Often, people consider intentional torts to be criminal charges, however, an intentional tort is a civil suit. A defendant may, however, face criminal charges and a civil suit simultaneously for the same offense. A civil suit is a way for a victim to recover financial compensation for their losses and damages (ex: medical bills).

Intentional tort cases we handle include:
