THERE ARE A VARIETY OF WAYS TO HANDLE PHARMACEUTICAL CASES.
Some are brought as individual cases, while others are multidistrict cases or class actions. Precisely how a case is handled depends upon the facts of each case and the basis of liability. We monitor activity of the Food & Drug Administration and other agencies. Many times, manufacturers simply fail to provide information to federal approving authorities, and other times the information is even false or misleading. There may be claims based upon the safety of the drug, the nature of the warnings, or possibly even the marketing of the drug. Each case is different and must be individually considered on its facts. Our law firm considers all pharmaceutical and drug-related cases, as well as medical device cases. Currently our drug litigation lawyers are concentrating on the following dangerous drugs:
Medical device cases are considered under a different body of law. In all these cases, federal preemption may be an issue. It takes a great deal of expertise to understand the nuances and complexities of the interaction between federal and state law in both medical device and pharmaceutical cases. Medical devices fall under different classifications.
The classification of the device may have something to do with the potential liability of the manufacturer.
Some medical devices malfunction, and others are defective. In still other cases where the manufacturer seeks approval of a medical device, misleading or improper information is provided to the approving authorities which may lead to liability. Whether you have been injured by a pharmaceutical or a medical device such as a Stryker Hip Implant you should call our law firm for assistance and direction.
