Hair Relaxer Lawsuit

Allen's Answers - Hair Relaxer Lawsuit

Here are the two questions to answer:

  • Have you or a loved one used a hair relaxer for a year or more?
  • Did you or a loved one have cancer of the uterus or ovary or been diagnosed with endometriosis?

If both are true, you need to join a growing number of south Alabama and Gulf Coast women.

Here is the bottom line. Studies have shown that the chemicals in many hair relaxers cause severe medical problems. Now, the battle is on to get compensation for the victims.


One of the important questions I am asked is how much money are we talking about? The amount depends on many factors, but it can be substantial. The reason is that you deserve to be compensated for the following:

  • The type of illness suffered.
  • The severity of the illness.
  • Cost of medical expenses.
  • Your lost wages.
  • Your pain and suffering.


The next question I am often asked is will I have to go to court? It is unlikely. I believe the manufacturers will pool their money, which will be given to victims based on their circumstances. This pooling is why I strongly suggest you have a local lawyer who can look out for your specific interests. You want to be at the front of the line if the money or time runs out.


Surprisingly, many families do not know this major lawsuit against hair relaxer manufacturers exists. Tell your friends. There is help, but they have to reach out.
