Mass Torts: Strength In Numbers
Medications and medical devices are supposed to help people, not harm them. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies all too often market defective drugs and medical devices that cause death and injury to many people. Defective medications can cause serious injuries and illnesses, including cancer, heart attacks, strokes, birth defects, disability and death, to name just a few.
A recent example is opioids. Several class actions allege that various manufacturers failed to include adequate warnings about the dangerously addictive properties of these painkillers. These drugmakers are facing tough questions in ongoing class action litigation. However, a heavy toll has already been paid for ruined lives, careers and families across the country.
Fortunately, the legal system provides a way to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable through litigation, including mass torts litigation. If you or a loved one suffered an injury due to a pharmaceutical product, you may be able to obtain compensation. However, it is important to act quickly to protect your rights, as relatively short deadlines apply to this type of lawsuit.
As soon as you realize that you or a loved one has been injured by a medical product, it is critical to take action immediately. Don’t let your rights slip away by waiting too long.

You may be entitled to damages for medical expenses, loss of present and future earnings, disfigurement, pain and suffering, permanent injury or the death of a loved one. In some cases, significant punitive damages may also be available.
