Attorneys Fighting For Clients Injured By Dangerous Prescription Drugs And Medical Devices
The Food And Drug Administration is supposed to be the federal watchdog that ensures the safety of America’s pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices. Unfortunately, dangerous products make it to market in spite of (or without the need for) FDA approval. In many cases, manufacturers of these products knew they were dangerous but downplayed unfavorable clinical trial results and failed to disclose the risks to doctors and patients.
Every year, Americans are hurt and killed due to dangerous and defective drugs as well as improper prescription and medication practices. Our attorneys at Power Rogers, LLP, handle cases involving prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical injuries as part of our larger personal injury practice. Since 1993, we’ve recovered over $5 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients, and we understand how to represent you effectively and compassionately.

Representing Plaintiffs In Mass Tort Litigation
Even if you were the only consumer harmed by a dangerous and defective product, you would still be within your rights to sue the company for negligence. However, dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical device often injure or kills thousands of victims. For this reason, these cases are often considered mass torts. A mass tort is when multiple plaintiffs pursue compensation against a single defendant responsible for an injury or damage, such as a corporation.
Although they share some similarities, mass torts are not the same as class action lawsuits. A class action requires that all plaintiffs share very similar harms, and each plaintiff has only a small say over the direction of litigation. By contrast, mass torts involve numerous lawsuits making similar allegations but giving each plaintiff control over the direction of the case. One of the main advantages of mass tort litigation is efficiency. Because we often represent many clients in cases against the same defendant(s), each of our clients benefits from our extensive research, document review and other case preparation efforts.
