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.

  • Could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem

    We could not have asked for a better group of attorneys to handle our legal problem. James Farmer and Melvin Allen were very knowledgeable, confident and successful in handling our case. I will definitely be referring this Law Firm to others.

  • Showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck

    “James Farmer and his team exceeded all expectations! I had a very serious criminal case and his firm was recommended to me by a family member. I was incarcerated during this time and he and his associate Stephanie came to update me on multiple occasions on the progress of my case. They were not only professional but the amount of time and energy they put into my case showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck! They prepared for trial, but in the end was able to work out a plea deal that did not include any jail time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Farmer and his team for any criminal case!”

  • 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 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.”

  • Nothing short of miraculous

    “Mr. Farmer and his associates go the EXTRA mile for all their clients! It's nice to feel safe at the hands of your attorney and get a great outcome! 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!!!”

    Yes, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) agree that benzene is a carcinogen or a substance that can cause cancer in humans. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considered benzene as a solvent that is unsafe in drug manufacturing, as well as other substances that could be accidentally ingested, such as sunscreen.

    According to Valisure’s research, benzene has also been detected in these sunscreen brands:
    • Aveeno

  • Who can sue for benzene exposure in sunscreen?

People who have also been diagnosed with a form of cancer will have the strongest claims, though. For more information, contact our firm. We work with clients nationwide for sunscreen lawsuits.
