Sunscreen Mass Tort Lawyers

Assisting Clients Nationwide with Sunscreen Lawsuits

The same sunscreen that is meant to protect you from skin cancer due to the sun’s harmful radiation could be what caused your recent cancer diagnosis. Several popular sunscreen brands have recently been recalled for unsafe benzene levels in them. Benzene is a chemical component that is a known carcinogen.

People who used benzene-laced sunscreen often might be at risk of:

  • Leukemia
  • Myeloma
  • Lymphoma
  • Other similar cancers

Did you use sunscreen often and were later diagnosed with cancer? There could be a connection that warrants a lawsuit against the sunscreen’s manufacturer. The Farmer & Klopfer can help you explore your options and take legal action. We assist clients in all 50 states.

  • A wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense

    Mr. Farmer and his team were impressive through their work effort and detailed approach in every phase the Civil Court Personal Injury case. They also were responsive to any questions/concerns, supportive and communicated well through out the process. In the end, a satisfactory settlement was achieved. Mr. Farmer would be a wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense.

  • We received a great outcome and my family was 100% pleased

    “Attorney Farmer helped me and my family through a domestic situation which turned out to be great. His expertise, presentation, and professionalism all worked together and we received a great outcome and my family was 100% pleased. I would highly recommend!”

  • Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with

    I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.

  • A family member was in a bad situation and they resolved it with ZERO drama.

    “Don’t mess around when it’s your money on the line. Go with these guys if you want excellent, competent attorneys.”

  • Thank you, Mr. Farmer, and may God bless you in your future endeavors.

    “You and your team have given my family our son back. No amount can adequately compensate for that gift! I can only hope our heart-felt thank-you and 'God bless you' will somehow offset the imbalance.”
