Wright & Schulte LLC Represents Hundreds of Men In Just For Men Lawsuits Alleging The Men’s Hair Dye Causes Skin Blistering And Other Allergic Reactions.
A mass tort has been created for Just For Men lawsuits that allege men suffered allergic skin reactions and severe chemical burns from the popular men’s hair dye. The Just For Men mass tort litigation was established in June in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois. The claims accuse defendants Combe Incorporated and its affiliate companies of failing to warn consumers of the adverse reactions to their products, such as rashes, weeping sores, blisters, and other injuries, some of which require hospitalization. Wright & Schulte LLC is representing hundreds of men from around the country in Just For Men lawsuits where men experienced skin blistering, scarring, burns, weeping sores, severe rashes, and other allergic reactions.

The mass tort involves Just For Men lawsuits filed on behalf of hundreds of men nationwide who have been injured by the hair dye products. The creation of a mass tort docket will allow these cases, and others filed in or transferred to the Southern Illinois federal court in the future, to undergo certain coordinated pretrial proceedings. District Court Judge David Herndon, who is presiding over the mass tort, appointed Richard Schulte, co-founder of Wright & Schulte LLC as Co-Lead Counsel for plaintiffs. In an order establishing the mass tort, Judge Herndon said the lead counsels for plaintiffs and defendants will file the complaints or documents directly into the litigation. Judge Herndon also directed the lead attorneys to meet in advance of a status conference on September 21 and be prepared to discuss a plan to resolve pending motions and a plan for managing the litigation going forward.

“In a mass tort, lawsuits are filed separately for each plaintiff,” Mr. Schulte said. “Although hundreds of men are already involved in this Just For Men litigation, we expect more filings from men who have been seriously injured by the Just For Men products.”
The product liability attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC have continued to receive complaints since re-opening its investigation of Just For Men hair products in December. Men who used the products and suffered chemical burns, severe rashes, skin blisters, scarring or other serious reactions may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other damages.

Just for Men products have been on the U.S. market since 1987. The permanent color dye products help men cover the gray in their hair, mustache and beard. The Just For Men complaints maintain that the ingredient p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), causes men to have allergic reactions to the hair dye product. According to the complaints, some consumers have a high sensitivity rate to PPD. Additionally, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency listed several links between PPD and severe dermatitis, acute contact dermatitis, renal failure, vitiligo, convulsions and comas, the lawsuits say.
Court documents show that among the hundreds of lawsuits in the mass tort is one filed by a Tennessee man who purchased Just for Men in January 2016. After using the product, he suffered a severe reaction that included swelling, weeping sores, redness and skin discoloration and sought medical treatment, the complaint said. Additionally, an Ohio man said in his lawsuit that he used Just For Men in May 2014 and suffered a severe reaction that included redness, itching, stinging, irritation, sores, blisters, burning, permanent scarring, and permanent skin discoloration.
