Lawsuits for Dangerous Drug Injuries, Defective Implants, & Recalled Medical Devices

When someone is prescribed medication to treat an illness or medical condition, they expect the drug to be safe. However, many prescription medications approved by the FDA are later found to have side effects that were unknown at the time they were administered to patients.

The same is true regarding medical devices and implants like those used in hip replacements, pacemakers, and other surgical procedures. Unfortunately several medical devices like IVC filters, Heater Coolers, Physiomesh, and heart defibrillator implants were found to have dangerous and potentially fatal side effects after they were placed inside patients. Claims of negligence by plaintiffs in an Essure birth control complications lawsuit allege that manufacturers intentionally covered up initial findings that indicated serious side effects.

Protecting Our Health

Among the most troubling ironies we face is that the same medical drugs, products and practices intended to improve our health can also destroy it. At the very least, negligence on the part of pharmaceutical companies, if not outright wrongdoing, is to blame.

But the sources of these and other threats are many and varied, and so our mission of protecting consumer health includes representation of both individuals and public entities.

On the side of public entities, we successfully represented seven states against Avandia manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline, resulting in a landmark $177 million settlement and changing the way that Avandia was marketed to include full-risk disclosure.

And on the side of individuals, we’ve represented thousands of men, women and children harmed by pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices, ones that had either undisclosed risks or were heavily marketed for dangerous, off-label uses.

WE SUCCESSFULLY REPRESENTED SEVEN STATES IN A LANDMARK $177-MILLION SETTLEMENT, CHANGING THE WAY THAT AVANDIA WAS MARKETED, AND ON THE SIDE OF INDIVIDUALS, REPRESENTED THOUSANDS HARMED BY PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS AND MEDICAL DEVICES.

That long and varied list of dangerous drugs and devices includes the following: transvaginal mesh implants that require numerous repair surgeries, Risperdal medication that triggers breast growth in boys, anti-clotting medicine that causes unstoppable bleeding and a host of others.

But our health isn’t only endangered by pharmaceutical companies. It is also endangered by toxins like asbestos, which is the only known cause of a deadly cancer called mesothelioma.

In fact, Baron & Budd was founded to represent men and women who developed asbestos-related illnesses, and this practice remains a cornerstone of the law firm today.

Sadly, the newest addition to our mission of health protection is nursing home abuse, as evidenced by statistics that are increasing at an alarming rate.

The list of physical threats may be long – but it’s one we are committed to tackling – as long as anyone’s health is threatened.
