Notorious and Lucrative Product Liability Cases

When you spend your hard-earned money on a product, you expect to get what is advertised. What you do not expect to get is injured from a product that was poorly made or designed. Unfortunately, many people have been serious injured or killed by defective products, which can result in a product liability lawsuit. Every year manufacturers pay millions of dollars to plaintiffs of these cases that have been harmed from their products. Here are some notorious, and lucrative, product liability cases.

General Motors Exploding Gas Tanks

The families of six victims that were killed by exploding gas tanks installed in the 1979 Chevy Malibu sued GM for their losses. The families received $4.9 billion in damages to compensate for their losses.

Phillip Morris Lung Cancer Lawsuits

Phillip Morris and many other tobacco companies have been sued repeatedly for their responsibility in creating products that caused lung cancer without warning customers of the risk. One plaintiff received $28 billion in punitive damages from Phillip Morris.

Johnson & Johnson’s Many Lawsuits

Johnson & Johnson is one of the largest medical product corporations in the world. They are also one of the most sued companies due to the many defective products they have produced that harmed their customers. Some of these lawsuits include:

  • $465 million to the state of Oklahoma for its role in the opioid crisis – many other states have followed suit and also sued the company
  • $8 billion to users of the drug Risperdal, which cause gynecomastia
  • $4.6 billion for faulty talcum powder that caused ovarian cancer
  • Over $1 billion for faulty hip implants created through their subsidiary DePuy Pinnacle

Monsanto Co. Roundup Lawsuits

Monsanto Co. makes the weed killer Roundup, which has been reported to cause cancer in those exposed to the chemical. The first of many lawsuits against Monsanto regarding Roundup resulted in the plaintiff receiving $289 million in compensation.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
