Updates on the NEC Baby Formula Lawsuits

Is your child a victim of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)? Most of the victims of necrotizing enterocolitis, also known as NEC, are premature infants. Because commercial infant formula products have been directly linked to NEC, if your own child has developed NEC, you should consult at once with a California product liability attorney. For several years, the manufacturers of baby formula products have been targeted with lawsuits – filed by parents in a number of states – which claim that particular baby formula products are a direct cause of[...]

Frost Law Firm Helps Return Verdict of $40.7M for Family of Mesothelioma Victim

On August 30, 2023, an unanimous jury returned a verdict of $40,750,000 on behalf of Bruce Torgerson and his family in Cook County, Illinois, against the only defendant, John Crane, before the Honorable Judge Bridget Mitchell. Plaintiff Annette Beneville, the daughter of the decedent Bruce Torgerson, claimed that Bruce Torgerson developed malignant pleural mesothelioma as a result of his exposure to asbestos from John Crane Inc. asbestos-containing gaskets and packing. Plaintiff claimed that his exposure to John Crane Inc.’s asbestos-containing packing and gaskets was a substantial factor in causing[...]

What Benefits Are Available for Those With Mesothelioma?

The victims of mesothelioma and their loved ones, from anywhere in the United States, should arrange at once to discuss their rights – including their right to compensation and benefits – with a mesothelioma lawyer. Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Victims have the right to be compensated by the party responsible for their asbestos exposure. However, you’ll need an attorney’s help to recover the compensation and benefits that you’re entitled to by the law. What compensation and benefits are available to asbestos victims and[...]

The Ongoing Risk of Asbestos in Cosmetic Talc

Last year, our law firm reported on the connection between talcum powder and mesothelioma. In short, talc—a naturally-occurring mineral used in many cosmetic and personal care products—has been linked to the development of mesothelioma and other illnesses in users. Talc itself isn’t the main problem. Asbestos, a known carcinogen, is often found in the same excavation sites from which talc is sourced. The American Cancer Society recognizes that, while asbestos-free talc has not been conclusively linked to cancer, asbestos-containing talc can and does cause cancer. Because of where[...]

Scott L. Frost and Paul C. Cook Comment on Examining Jurors for Bias Against Large Verdicts

When a trial is about to begin, it's commonplace for prospective jurors to be called in and, in addition to completing a written questionnaire, be subjected to additional questioning to confirm that they are indeed fair and unbiased, according to the American Bar Association's discussion of voir dire. Attorneys Scott L. Frost and Paul C. Cook recently issued a position paper in which they commented on the importance of examining jurors for bias against large verdicts during the voir dire process. The commentary appeared in the Asbestos publication[...]

Filing a Mesothelioma Claim After the Death of a Loved One

Mesothelioma is a rare, incurable cancer. When someone dies of mesothelioma, that person’s surviving family members – anywhere in the United States – may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit and recover compensation with help from a California mesothelioma attorney. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Wrongful death lawsuits arising from mesothelioma fatalities name those parties who may be responsible for a loved one’s asbestos exposure – usually product manufacturers and/or suppliers – as defendants. What steps can your family take to[...]

Can NEC Cause Problems Later in Life?

NEC – necrotizing enterocolitis – strikes preterm and premature infants. Research indicates that commercially manufactured infant formulas are directly tied to NEC. When an infant develops NEC, that infant’s parents should have a discussion about their rights and options promptly – from anywhere in the United States – with a California product liability attorney. What is necrotizing enterocolitis? What are the symptoms, and what makes NEC so dangerous? What are the long-term effects of NEC? And how will a necrotizing enterocolitis lawyer help families with a child who[...]

Why Are Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Victims Still Waiting for Compensation?

For more than three decades, the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune was contaminated with a number of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) known to be dangerous to human health. From Aug. 1953 to Dec. 1987, people who worked at and lived on this military installation were exposed to dangerous and toxic substances. Many went on to develop life-altering illnesses, diseases, and conditions. The passage of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022 created a legal path for victims to recover compensation from the federal government. But if[...]

Why Semi-Trucks Roll Over and What Happens After

Commercial motor vehicles are a regular fixture on California roads, highways, and interstates. Whether delivering food items to the grocery store or transporting consumer goods out of state, we rely on the services provided by semi-truck and long-haul drivers. Sharing the road with a semi-truck can be dangerous, though. Commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) like semi-trucks are much larger and heavier than the typical passenger vehicle, and their significant height makes them prone to rolling or toppling over. The reasons why semi-trucks roll over can vary, and at Frost[...]

Areas Near Camp Lejeune That May Have Experienced Water Contamination

From 1953 to 1987, the water used for drinking, cooking, handwashing, and showering at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune was contaminated with substances that are toxic to human health. The main contaminants—trichloroethylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE), vinyl chloride, and benzene—have been linked to a number of serious health conditions, including neurological impacts and a variety of different cancers. The toxic exposure that occurred for a period of more than three decades recently prompted the U.S. government to take legal action to help victims. The Camp Lejeune Justice Act of[...]

Our Experience Is Personal

Scott L. Frost’s Family Experience with Lung Cancer

For most of his life, Scott L. Frost’s father, who was in the construction industry, worked with and sold products containing asbestos without knowing the materials were dangerous. He was diagnosed with lung cancer 40 years after starting his career, leading Scott’s family to fight like they had never fought before.

Pictured here with his wife of over 50 years, Scott’s father eventually succumbed to the cancer. Since then, Scott has made it his mission to do everything in his power to make sure corporations understand how dangerous asbestos is and prevent future generations from suffering as his family did, as well as support research that may lead to finding a cure.
