Pharmaceutical / Biological / Medical Litigation
Pharmaceutical companies are often the targets of blame and frivolous lawsuits, arising from the prescription and/or implantation of drugs or implants that must undergo extensive pre-approval case studies, testing, and evaluation all under the supervision and control of the Federal food and Drug Administration. Often suites are brought without understanding that the alleged side effects must be weighed against the benefits that the drugs and/or implants can provide.
Below is a listing of the pharmaceutical, biologic, and medical areas in which we have represented our clients:
- Albuterol - inhaler
- Dental impression materials
- Fiberglass casting materials
- Infusion pump
- Thimerosal containing vaccines
- Transfusion associated AIDS
The firm is winding up its national representation and defense of a chemical supplier, which supplied Thimerosal to a number of pharmaceutical companies, which processed and distributed, childhood vaccines. Although the overwhelming medical and scientific research and resultant evidence showed no relationship between the vaccines and the alleged injuries, plaintiff's counsel continued the litigation for approximately ten years. During the course of the representation, the firm provided extensive oversight and control over the local counsel retained to provide a local presence in various states. Although there were more than 450 suits brought against the firm's client, no indemnification dollars were paid, by either settlement and/or verdict.
Exposure to toxic chemicals can have both short and long-term effects. Those most at risk from such exposures are those who live or work near a facility that manufactures or handles such chemicals. Frequent long-term exposure to chemicals have been shown to cause cancer and/or other significant health ailments. Some of the toxic exposure areas in which we have worked are:
- Chemical smoke inhalation
- Liquid Propane
