The Link Between Hair Relaxers and Cancer

We Don’t Settle for Less. Neither Should You.™

A cancer diagnosis is a scary time in anyone’s life, as it is accompanied by uncertainty, worry, and a mountain of medical bills. The idea that the cause of your illness could be a product that was advertised and marketed as a safe and trustworthy hair treatment is outrageous. That is why hair relaxer cancer lawsuits are so important.

As women around the country hold these major companies and corporations accountable for their wrongdoing, Montlick lawyers are ready to fight for you, too.

If you or a loved one has used chemical hair relaxers or chemical hair straighteners, and believe you developed cancer as a result, we would like to see if we can help you. You could be entitled to valuable compensation, including compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

This was the very first time I ever deal with any attorney. The Montlick Association has been extremely very good to me. Mr. Vocino and Amber Starks has been very professional and very knowledgeable. They have been very patient with me, returned calls right away, answered e mails same day and differently kept me up to date on my case. If ever ( and I hope I don't) I will differently call on them again. I would also recommend anyone to this company.. thank you Mr. Vocino and Amber.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Amy & Cate at Montlick, and I can't recommend them enough! From the moment I reached out for a consultation to the resolution of my case, the team displayed utmost professionalism, empathy, and expertise. Every question was answered promptly, and I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The attention to detail and dedication to my case was evident, and it truly felt like they went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. It's clear that this firm not only has a deep understanding of the law but also a genuine commitment to their clients' well-being. If you're in need of legal assistance in Georgia , Montlick & associates should be your first call. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team for their exceptional service!

Had a injury nobody else would take, Montlick took and and helped me to settleBrought my first ram truck from the settlement thank you Jason - Attorney, thank you Montlick. Also I want to thank Victoria Montlick Wins! Go with Montlick ! They will Lick the counterpart to pieces
Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.
I was in a wreck actually 2 wrecks last year so I decided to hire montlick for both cases. My lawyer was Nick very pleasant & quick with respond time. His assistant amber was also one phone call away. This was my 1st time in this type of situation but I’m glad I chose montlick thanks again guys.
I'm thankful to have chosen your firm Mr.Nick has been all and more, I couldn't have had the the turn out that I did, your firm is the best from the assistant, Ms Amber and all concerned even down to the ladies that answer the phones,every one has been very pleasant. I was truly satisfied, thank you Montlick. Will spread the word you have earned your name. Sandra Atkinson
On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates
I was injured at work and needed a lawyer who would understand and not take for granted what I was going through. Alex and Johnathan with MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES were like Batman and Robin. While Alex was leading the defense he had Johnathan that not only kept in constant contact with my day to day issues, he also had first hand experience of what my injuries were and what I was going through physical, mentally and emotionally. Alex & Johnathan, you both gave me a reason to believe that not all lawyers are only about their bottom line. I thank you both for being there when I was at one of the lowest points in my life.
Ellen Forrester and Nicole Casorio are the best in the business.Incredible professionalism, honesty and efficiency.Not only was Ellen 100% accurate on her assessment of my case, she was also a straight shooter.Nicole thank you for your patience and help in navigating this stressful process.10/10
Catherine Powell is one of the best lawyers I know out here work hard for you to get the truth and try to close your case as soon as possible when she says she’s gonna handle it and get it done she does it I really appreciate you more than my case and I thank you from the bottom of my heart Rita Cross

The Link Between Hair Relaxers and Cancer

The National Institutes of Health recently released findings from a study that show a link between the use of chemical hair relaxers to straighten naturally curly hair and increased risk of certain cancers.

For example, women who reported using chemical hair relaxers “frequently”–defined in the study by four or more uses per year–more than doubled their chances of developing uterine cancer.

Many popular brands of chemical straighteners, relaxers and other hair smoothing products contain potentially unsafe chemicals such as parabens, bisphenol A, metals, and formaldehyde. The prolonged exposure of these harmful chemicals to a person’s scalp may increase risk of cancer.

At Montlick, we handle your case with:

While the alarming findings of the NIH study are relevant to any woman, regardless of race or ethnicity, who has ever used any type of chemical hair straightening, perming or smoothing products, the study’s author notes that the findings might be especially relevant to Black women, because “Black women use hair straightening or relaxer products more frequently and tend to initiate use at earlier ages than other races and ethnicities.”

While Black women made up only 7% of the study’s participants, they accounted for nearly 60% of those who reported using chemical hair straightening products in the last year, whether professionally or at home. Additionally, a 2019 study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology reported that the rate of uterine cancer has been rising among Black women in recent years.
