Consumer Safety Case Studies

Corporations have a responsibility to market safe products to consumers.

When something goes wrong and consumers are hurt by corporate wrongdoing, the advocates at ConsumerSafety.Law are here to help.

Have you been harmed by a dangerous drug or other defective consumer product? Our legal advocates may be able to help.

Consumer Safety Case Studies

ConsumerSafety.Law, sponsored by the national plaintiffs’ law firm Simmons Hanly Conroy, helps consumers injured by a company’s defective drug or product by helping them enforce their legal rights.

Even if you’re not interested in filing a lawsuit, our team believes that helping consumers understand on-going litigation involving current or recalled products provides valuable information. Forewarned consumers can then protect themselves and their families by making informed choices about the products, devices and drugs they use in their everyday lives.

Browse the case studies below to learn more about the stories of ordinary consumers confronted with extraordinary circumstances caused by dangerous drugs, defective goods, environmental negligence or the wrong-doing of others.




A Pennsylvania jury awarded a $3 million verdict to the family of a child born with bilateral cleft palate and lip.

Bridgeton Landfill

In 2010, the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill became the site of a subterranean fire and the source of harmful air emissions, including benzene and hydrogen sulfide. Simmons Hanly Conroy attorneys filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of 600 residents affected by the noxious odors, prompting a $6.8 million dollar settlement with Republic Services, Inc, the owner of the landfill and one of the largest waste management companies in the country.

Wrongful Death

A confidential settlement was reached just before trial in a wrongful death lawsuit concerning the death of 42-year-old Anthony “Todd” Burkey while being restrained by three security guards in a hospital emergency room. Two of the guards were indicted by a grand jury for involuntary manslaughter. While no amount of money can ever replace the loss of a loved one, Simmons Hanly Conroy helped the family secure justice in memory of their father and husband.
