Drug Recall and Defective Drugs Litigation Examples of Mass Tort litigation: Medical devices, such as orthopedic hip replacements, breast implants, pacemaker wires and latex gloves A wide range of consumer products, such as prescription drugs, food supplements, tires or household products Disasters such as airplane crashes and other fatal accidents that occur on a large scale Examples of Mass Tort in business law: Civil RICO violations Fraud and misrepresentation Breach of fiduciary duty Defamation Wrongful interference with business Violations of good faith and fair dealing Failure to warn and product liability in defective drugs litigation The general theory of liability in most defective drugs cases is a failure to adequately warn. Over and over again, we investigate large pharmaceutical companies that initiate studies and know of dangerous consequences but do not warn consumers of possible dangers and side effects. Products are often over-marketed and falsely advertised, and consumers do not have a balanced or accurate idea of the drug or its consequences. We are experienced with complex mass tort and drug litigation involving: Accutane Avandia Yasmin Defective Hip Replacement Recall Reglan Fosamax Prescription drug recalls Our medical malpractice attorneys are also able to help if you were prescribed the wrong dosage of a drug, causing an overdose leading to wrongful death, or if you were prescribed the wrong drug altogether. Drug Recall Attorneys — Strategic Investigations and Advocacy One distinct advantage of mass tort litigation for the injured party is that one personal injury attorney or group of personal injury attorneys can represent many persons at the same time. All the investigative and preparation work done for one can be used by the others. Often a network of personal injury attorneys across the country will work together by sharing information and responsibility for the work required to successfully represent their clients. Mass tort cases are often inappropriately called “class actions.” While some are, the requirements for a true class action are reserved for only a small number of appropriate situations. All class actions are essentially mass tort actions, but not all mass torts are class actions.
