Potential Relief for SmileDirectClub, Everyday Health Users
In this issue, we’re taking a look at a couple of matters – involving SmileDirectClub and Everyday Health – that attorneys are interested in starting mass arbitrations over (more on what this means below). While there are no guarantees, those who sign up could be entitled to hundreds or thousands of dollars. So, if you used invisible aligners or braces from SmileDirectClub or registered for an account on EverydayHealth.com or subscribed to its newsletter, app or health courses, you’ll want to keep reading.
From there, we’ll look at a new investigation into reports that LG solar panels degrade well before their advertised lifespan, leading to decreased power output. To round things out, attorneys again need to speak with consumers who purchased Evenflo’s Big Kid booster seats. Keep reading for the latest.
After countless complaints were posted online, including some from people who said their teeth fell out, there could be some relief on the horizon for SmileDirectClub customers. It’s believed that the company may have misrepresented a number of key components of its services – including that patients would be supervised by doctors – and defrauded consumers in the process. Now, attorneys are looking to move forward with a process known as mass arbitration – which has the potential to provide money to anyone who bought invisible aligners or braces through SmileDirectClub and felt they didn’t get what they paid for. Since this wouldn’t be a class action, but a collection of individual arbitration claims, each person wishing to participate will need to sign up. Read up on the complaints and learn how to join others taking action over on this page.
It seems like most things we buy don’t last as long as they should, but in the case of those experiencing decreased power output from their LG solar panels, attorneys suspect a defect may be to blame. Reportedly, the panels in question can degrade well before their 25-year warranty expires, leaving customers to pay more for utilities or miss out on renewable energy incentives due to their system’s failure to produce enough power. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed to help LG customers get back some of the money they spent on the solar panels and any related losses. If you noticed reduced power output from your LG solar panels, head over to this page to learn more about the investigation and potentially help get a lawsuit started.

We’ve previously touched on how secure (or not) your medical information may be if you registered for an account with EverydayHealth.com or subscribed to its newsletter, app or health courses before. This time, however, attorneys are looking to a different legal strategy known as mass arbitration, and they need users to come forward once again to help, even if you previously filled out the form. While different from a class action, mass arbitration, if successful, has the potential to provide those who participate with thousands of dollars. The attorneys have reason to suspect that Everyday Health may have violated subscribers’ privacy by sharing their health and personal information with Meta, the owner of Facebook. So, if you have an account with EverydayHealth.com or subscribed to the site’s newsletter, app or health courses – and you also have a Facebook account – join others taking action by filling out the quick form on this page.
If you purchased an Evenflo Big Kid high back booster seat, attorneys working with ClassAction.org want to hear from you. Multiple class action lawsuits have been filed alleging Evenflo deceived parents into believing its Big Kid booster seats were safe when they actually pose a real safety risk to children. Specifically, claims have surfaced that Evenflo misled parents about the “rigorous” side-impact safety testing behind the seats and falsely represented that the product is appropriate for children weighing as little as 30 pounds, in direct contradiction to widely accepted safety recommendations. If the litigation is successful, parents could get some money back for the seats – plus, the manufacturer could be forced to recall and/or relabel the products at issue.
