Trouble with Your Hyundai, Kia Dual Clutch Transmission?
We’re opening this issue with new investigations into matters that are all too common these days, vehicle problems and data breaches. Attorneys have reason to believe that last year’s Hyundai and Kia recall that addressed a problem with the vehicles’ dual-clutch transmissions was insufficient – and a class action may be able to get drivers proper relief.
Then, we’ll take a look at a data breach affecting Health Care Service Corp. If you got letters from HVSC about a data incident, you’ll want to check out the story below.
From there, attorneys are investigating claims that Omron blood pressure monitors are consistently inaccurate to the point that they are useless. We’ll round things out with a lawsuit recently filed against Target over supposedly “clean” cosmetics. Keep reading for the latest.
Several Hyundai and Kia vehicle models were recalled in late 2022 due to a problem with the electric oil pump in their dual-clutch transmissions. It’s believed that the recalls may not have adequately addressed the underlying issue, however, and attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of drivers who’ve experienced transmission problems. Head to this page for a list of affected vehicles and additional details on the investigation.
On August 21, 2023, Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) filed a notice of a data breach with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. More than 190,000 individuals are reportedly affected by the breach, and now attorneys are investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed. A class action could help compensate data breach victims for any harm they've experienced as a result of the incident, including out-of-pocket expenses and time lost responding to the breach. If you got a letter from HCSC about a breach, learn more here.

Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating Omron’s Platinum blood pressure monitor, specifically the BP5450 model, in light of customer complaints that the device is inaccurate. One reviewer who claimed to be a biomedical engineer and PhD stated that the monitor’s readings were “consistently 10+ mm Hg off,” making the device essentially useless. Specifically, the attorneys are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed against Omron for potentially misleading customers, many of whom rely on the devices to manage health conditions. If you bought an Omron Platinum blood pressure monitor model BP5450 within the past three years, check out this page.
The “Target Clean” label is a green icon used to promote certain cosmetics and personal care products supposedly made without a handful of unwanted ingredients – but a proposed class action lawsuit is claiming that the seal is no more than a marketing tool used by the retailer to increase sales and gain a leg up on competitors. The lawsuit states that numerous beauty products tagged as “Target Clean” actually contain dangerous ingredients that “clean” shoppers would want to avoid, including carcinogens, skin irritants and others.
