Current Litigation

Our attorneys are currently representing seriously injured clients in cases related to the following drugs, devices and defective products:

Essure

Essure is sold as a permanent, non-surgical birth control solution for women. A pair of metal and fiber coils are inserted into the fallopian tubes to block conception, however the device has been linked to thousands of adverse event reports and spawned lawsuits alleging that Essure’s manufacturer, Bayer HealthCare, concealed some adverse reactions from the FDA.

Zofran

Recent research suggests that ondansetron—first marketed under the brand name Zofran—taken by pregnant women for morning sickness may increase the risk of cleft palate and congenital heart defects in babies. Read more

Xarelto

Widespread reports of injury continue to emerge from patients who have taken the blood-thinning drug Xarelto. The anticoagulant, which has seen blockbuster success since its introduction in 2012, is linked to fatal bleeding events to which there is no antidote. Read more

Risperdal

Janssen Pharmaceuticals’ antipsychotic drug Risperdal (risperidone) was first approved by the FDA in 1993 for the treatment of adult schizophrenia. In 2006, other indications of the drug were approved for use in children, but Risperdal often led to unwanted side-effects such as abnormal breast development in males, or gynecomastia. Janssen now faces multiple lawsuits alleging “off-label” marketing, or promoting Risperdal for uses not approved by the FDA. Read More

Hip Implants

It is estimated that over 500,000 people received metal-on-metal hip implants over the last 10 years in the U.S. alone. The dangers associated with these devices—which fail at an alarming rate—are well documented. The metal-on-metal movement inside the human body can cause the release of tiny metal particles, damaging the surrounding soft tissue and bone, and sometimes entering the bloodstream causing other systemic health issues. Failure often requires revision surgery to remove or replace the implant. Read more

SSRI

Antidepressants such as Paxil and Zoloft, known as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), have been prescribed for over 25 years to treat major depressive disorder in adults, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety, and other disorders. However, many of these drugs have been linked to a multitude of unwanted side-effects—especially when taken during pregnancy. Lawsuits have been filed alleging that the makers of certain SSRI drugs failed to adequately warn consumers of the drugs’ risks in causing fetal heart defects. Read More
