What amount of money can I receive if my toxic hair relaxer claim is approved?

There are many factors that will affect the sum of money you can receive as compensation if your toxic hair relaxer claim is approved, such as your diagnosis, how severe and debilitating your disease is, and the number of manufacturers with which our attorneys will file your claim. Nevertheless, if we determine that you are eligible for compensation, we will strive to obtain the largest amount of money you deserve for your suffering.

The amount of money you can receive for a claim is not fixed and depends on each case

Exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemicals in hair relaxers was found to cause uterine cancer, endometriosis, and ovarian cancer, and these are the only diagnoses for which you can file a claim. Still, before filing a claim per se, our attorneys will have to review your case to determine whether you are entitled to financial compensation from the manufacturers, a fast and simple process that can take place over the phone. The amount of money eligible women can receive will depend on the following key factors and many others:

  • what disease they have
  • how severe their disease is
  • whether their disease prevents them from working
  • how much pain and distress their disease causes them
  • what stage their cancer was found in
  • the number of hair relaxer manufacturers involved
  • whether they developed more than one disease
  • how long they have used toxic hair relaxers

A strong toxic hair relaxer case can have a potential settlement value of between $400,000 and $1.75 million, depending on the above factors. For instance, endometriosis claims will pay less than uterine cancer or ovarian cancer claims, as cancer is a more serious, often fatal disease. Even so, if you have endometriosis but the disease is not causing you a lot of distress in your everyday life, you should still contact our law firm, as anyone injured by the harmful chemicals in hair relaxers might be eligible to file a claim, and receive compensation.
