Types of Dangerous Drug & Pharmaceutical Lawsuits We Handle Include:

Our team of attorneys for dangerous drug side effects and defective medical devices are here to help if you or a loved one has suffered from a drug injury or lost their life due to a pharmaceutical company’s faulty product. Our team of victim’s advocates will work tirelessly to ensure that you and your family get every penny you deserve. Our team of drug injury lawyers have successfully litigated numerous lawsuit claims for victims of dangerous or unreported medication side effects. We’ve fought dangerous surgical mesh manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies that manufactured antibiotics that caused patients permanent nerve damage, and against the makers of Risperdal that caused thousands of males to develop gynecomastia. Let us help you hold the pharmaceutical companies accountable by pursuing a lawsuit to collect financial damages in a settlement.

Landmark Drug Lawsuits We’ve Won

Our legal team obtained a private settlement for approximately 17,000 victims injured or killed because of unreported side effects of Avandia, a once-popular diabetes drug. Our attorneys also won a $177 million settlement for seven states against Avandia manufacturers GlaxoSmithKline.

Baron & Budd’s drug attorneys negotiated a $1.275 billion settlement for victims injured by the diet drug Fen-phen.

Our team of attorneys argued settlements for over 1000 plaintiffs and families who suffered cardiac arrest and/or died after dialysis with GranuFlo or NaturaLyte. One of our class action lawyers, Burton LeBlanc, was appointed to the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee that oversees all litigation surrounding the GranuFlo and NaturaLyte litigation.

Mesothelioma Lawsuit Victories & Settlements in California

  • Our Los Angeles mesothelioma attorneys achieved a $48 million verdict on behalf of Mr. Bobbie Izell and his wife after he came into contact with asbestos as a bystander through his work in the construction industry. This verdict is the largest mesothelioma verdict in the nation in 2012.
  • A $20 million verdict, fully upheld on appeal, for Mrs. Joan Mahoney and her husband after Mrs. Mahoney was exposed to asbestos through her work in the family home remodeling business and ultimately diagnosed with mesothelioma.
  • Our lawyers won a $10 million mesothelioma verdict for a Navy Veteran, Mr. David Flowers, who spent much of his career in the U.S. Navy working as a machinist. His work brought him into contact with asbestos-containing pumps, gaskets and other materials.
  • The firm is honored to have achieved a $3.9 million verdict for U.S. Navy veteran Mr. Joseph Norris and his family. Mr. Norris was exposed to asbestos as a bystander while working aboard U.S. Navy ships.
