An Easy Guide to Wrongful Death Claims

When my friend lost her husband after an accident at work, we naturally assumed that his employer would do right by the family. We were surprised to find out that the company had no intentions of doing anything over than sending flowers to the funeral. A group of us immediately went to work helping our friend get what was rightfully hers. Wrongful death laws are complex and we soon found ourselves in over our heads. Once we started working with an attorney, we began to understand what we were reading. I started this blog because I want others in the same situation as my friend to have the resources needed to get the settlement they deserve.

Hair Straightener Products Might Increase Your Risk Of Uterine Cancer

It's essential to stay up-to-date on products that might be hazardous to your health. One example of such a product is chemical hair straighteners. Depending on the brand, you may increase your risk of developing uterine cancer.

How to Know If You're At Risk

Chemical hair straighteners pose a risk to those who use them several times a year. Then, exposure to the product's chemicals can increase your risk of uterine cancer.

You might use hair straighteners often because you have wavy or curly hair and are using straighteners to break down the structure of your hair. If so, it's highly recommended that you undergo a cancer screening and that you also pay close attention to the product line you use.

Why Some Hair Straighteners are Dangerous

Some hair straighteners contain chemicals that contribute to the formation of uterine fibroids. In particular, you are at risk of endometrial cancer. This specific cancer is affected by hormones. Therefore, the association between hair straighteners and uterine cancer may be how the product disrupts the endocrine system.

The Next Steps

If you have developed cancer and can connect your health condition to the use of chemical hair straighteners, a personal injury lawyer can help you. Your lawyer will go over your legal options. You may be able to take legal action or join in an already existing class action lawsuit. However, research into the connection between hair straighteners and cancer is ongoing.

How to Prove Fault

To receive compensation, you must prove that you used the hair product in question, research must exist that demonstrates that chemical hair straightener causes uterine cancer, and you must prove damages. For instance, you must present medical records if your case goes to court so you can prove that you got cancer and show how much your treatments have cost you.

How to Maximize Your Compensation

Once you are able to prove damages, the next step is to calculate the full extent of your injuries. This includes your medical expenses, future medical bills, lost wages, lost future earning potential, and pain and suffering. You might also be entitled to compensation for infertility.

Being diagnosed with cancer will also place you under a lot of emotional distress and you deserve compensation for therapy or anything else you need to cope with this difficult period. It's essential to have as many details as possible because you'll then be able to maximize your compensation.
