Mass Tort Attorneys

Defective Drugs and Devices Attorneys 

Millions of people rely on medical devices or prescription medications to make their lives better. Unfortunately, many of these same products can cause serious harm. A dangerous drug can leave you seriously ill and hospitalized for weeks or even months. Defective medical devices can be just as dangerous, sometimes requiring life-saving, emergency surgery to fix or replace such flawed products.

If you or a loved one was injured or a loved one died because of a defective pharmaceutical product or medical device, you might feel like you're the only one in the world going through such a frightening experience. But in reality, it’s likely that many others are dealing with the same problem, too. Quite often, several people sustain similar injuries or illnesses due to the same defective products. When such situations occur, you and all the other people harmed may be able to take legal action as a group against the company that made the product.

When such large-scale cases involve dangerous drugs or defective medical devices, these cases are commonly referred to as mass tort claims. Like class action claims, many people are often seeking compensation from a single company. But unlike class action cases, mass tort cases can be extremely complicated since the type and severity of the injuries caused by a similar project can vary widely from one person to the next. Importantly, unlike a class action, mass tort cases are considered individually and entitled to their own trial.

The Unyielding Representation You Need

Large-scale mass tort cases might seem straightforward. A drug or medical device harmed hundreds or thousands of people. Anyone injured should be compensated. Unfortunately, companies accused of wrongdoing often push back against these kinds of claims. Sometimes, companies deny any wrongdoing. Other times, both sides cannot agree on how much money to pay injury victims and their families. And in many cases, such legal battles can drag on for months or even years, thanks to the army of attorneys many medical companies hire to defend their best interests.

Knowing what to do in such situations can be overwhelming. All you want is to be fairly compensated for your losses. That's why it's often tempting to simply accept an offer. But what if that offer doesn't even come close to covering all your costs? Should you take legal action on your own? And if you decide to participate in a legal case against the company with hundreds or thousands of people, who should represent you?

Potential Issues with Drugs & Medical Devices

There are many different kinds of cases involving medications or medical devices harming hundreds or even thousands of people. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) routinely issues warnings or recalls for such projects.

But it's important to remember that the FDA does not work for you – they are simply concerned with making sure such products do not harm people in the future. The FDA does not deal with making sure you and your family receive compensation for medical bills, lost income, and other expenses associated with your losses. Our firm can fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.
