    Do you address your appeal to the same firm who told you your mother’ s lfe were only worth 1500. or nothing, The appeals should generate a class action case itself.

  2. C. Stokes says:

    250 million to 10000 lawsuits equals $250.00 each.

    • TLFLLC says:

      Actually C. Stokes, 3 things.

      First, if you don’t want a free $250, fell free to send it to us.

      Second, you math is off. $250 million divided by 10,000 lawsuits is NOT $250 each, it’s $25,000 each.

      And third, MDL cases are not disbursed on an even-steven, everyone-gets-an-equal-slice-of-the-pie basis; they are divided based on severity and level of injury, normally using some type of grid or merit point system.

    • Crystal says:

      Not all cases are approved, so far I’m hearing from my lawyer very few have been awarded pts.

  3. steve mills says:

    I was contacted last nov to fill out PPW marked “urgent” and return ASAP. but that was the last I heard.

    • TLFLLC says:

      Yeah, that’s usually how the law firms get you to respond and not throw their letter in the trash.

      I’d suggest you give them a call and find out where things stand.

    my mother was on dialysis from 2011 to 2016 she died of heart failure september 12 2016 she was in and out of the hospital having surgery after surgery her name Carrie Jackson she went on tuesday thursday and saturday to Fesenius in Mccomb Mississippi.

    • Mo says:

      Has any one received any of the 250 million yet?

      • TLFLLC says:

        Not that we are aware of yet.

      • Crystal says:

        Nope, my lawyer said they are dealing with appeals from families turned down , each case is scored , I got 100 points towards my mom’s case, that’s how they determine how much each family is awarded. They are saying all appeals should b wrapped up by fall.

  5. Robin says:

    I have a lawsuit pending for this however, since my mother already passed away, they say it would be hard to prove she died from these chemicals. It’s awful funny though, she was having heart attack”s repeatedly after 3 years of dialysis treatments. Go figure.
