Defective Drugs & Medical Devices
Common Defective Drugs
Meirowitz & Wasserberg, LLP, fights against the big pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers on behalf of consumers harmed by defective drugs and dangerous medical devices. Our attorneys have the know-how to handle complex claims arising from injuries due to dangerous medical products. We are not afraid to go after the biggest companies to fight for compensation for victims who were harmed when their medications or medical devices didn’t work as promised.
If you or someone you love took a medication or used a medical device and you got sick or injured as a result, you deserve to be fully compensated for all of the harm that happened to you. Medical device manufacturers abuse programs like fast-tracked FDA clearance to release products, even though they know they are dangerous. They should pay for the harm that occurs when people have operations or take medications and end up suffering as a result.
Meirowitz & Wasserberg represents clients in all types of product liability cases arising from defective drugs and dangerous manufacturers. We can help you with individual claims or if your case becomes part of a larger mass-tort litigation. Some of the different types of cases we handle involving dangerous drugs and defective medical devices include:
- Transvaginal mesh
- Hernia Mesh
- Hip implants (Stryker, DePuy, Zimmer)
- IVC Filters
- Paxil related birth defects
- SSRI medications
- Testosterone replacement therapies
- Ocella, Yasmin, and Yaz birth control
Clients in defective drug cases trust us because we have built a solid network of legal and medical professionals who can help make a strong claim for compensation. Victims harmed by defective drugs or dangerous medical products need to prove that the drug or device manufacturer was responsible for harming them.
Mass Torts for Defective Drugs and Dangerous Medical Devices
When product manufacturers release a dangerous drug or defective medical device, thousands of people across the United States are usually affected. Instead of every case being handled individually in courts across the country, claims can be moved before one judge as part of a large mass tort case.
In a mass tort case, you retain your individual claim - you don’t become part of one big case like plaintiffs in a class action. However, one judge decides on issues that are relevant to all the cases, like whether a given piece of evidence should be admissible or not.
Mass tort cases require a lawyer who knows how the rules work and who has experience in both state and federal courts.
