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.

The opinions that matter Most

Read our 5-Star Reviews
  • Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable

    “I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”

  • Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning

    “From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning, prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, he and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me throughout the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy, and courtroom presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should, too!”

  • 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.

Every experience I've personally had, as well as watched, has been nothing short of miraculous!! Farmer and staff are who you want on your side!!!”
