Rapid City, SD asked in Products Liability for South Dakota

Q: My brother (parents are deceased), age 62, has downs downs syndrome and dimentia.

He accidentally, per coroners report, injested part of a Tide Pod. This was the primary cause of death. Is this a case to submit to a Class Action lawsuit and, if so, how does one proceed.

A: I'm very sorry for the loss of your brother. A South Dakota attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. The best way to answer your question could be to reach out to law firms that are affiliated with the lawsuits. I don't know what the current disposition of any such cases are, but if you are able to contact law firms currently handling product liability lawsuits related to these products, they should be able to offer more meaningful guidance. Product liability firms sometimes handle cases within a specific niche or line of products, so it could be hit-or-miss in a firm that's close to such cases picking up your post here. Good luck
