Our products liability experience is quite diverse from dangerous drugs (e.g., vioxx, zicam cold remedy,heparin, celebrex,pradaxa) to defective medical products (e.g., deputy hip replacements, wright hips, medtronic pacemakers) to consumer products (e.g.,BBQ lighters, poisoned food, children’s non-flame resistent clothing, toys) to vehicles and vehicle options (e.g.,SUV rollovers, airbag failures, roof crush) to industrial/construction equipment (tree chippers, strippers, scaffolding). We are particularly interested in protecting the food supply and in holding accountable large box stores that dump dangerous and poorly made goods from China and elsewhere into the stream of commerce. We also believe that big pharma needs to be held in check. Drugs are being put on the market without adequate testing, and are being overprescribed. These are areas where we believe most Americans benefit from our vigilance.

Here are some past results (most are confidential):

5m Settlement during trial for a fire caused by a dangerous household product. The fire killed a grandmother who cared for a disabled daughter and her two children. This case required the retention of product design consultants, CPSC experts, fire forensics experts, as well as the review of well over 500,000 documents.

2.4m Verdict for defective roofing supplies resulting in a fall and serious back injuries.

4.5m Settlements for injuries caused by a painkiller that led to strokes and heart attacks.

15m Settlements for a drug pulled off the market that caused severe cardiovascular problems.

3.25m Defective hip replacement disables a high profile sports figure.

 

 

 

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
