How can this be?
The reason is simple: pharmaceutical companies knowingly withhold from the FDA critical information, usually an independent test result that implicates their drug as being inherently dangerous. The FDA approves the drug without ever conducting their own independent studies or requiring drug companies to disclose all of the data.
I recently settled two separate class action claims against two different pharmaceutical companies, one for $50 million and the other for $42.5 million.
In both of these class action cases, the argument was simple: the pharmaceutical companies wantonly withheld and covered up independent research studies that clearly showed that in an extraordinarily high percentage of cases, the patient upon taking the drug suffered severe and permanent injury.
Drugs recently involved in litigation include:
- Epidural Steroid Injections, implicated as a cause of fungal meningitis
- Dimethylamyline, contained in workout supplements
- Accutane (Isotrentoin)
If the drug manufacturer would provide a clear and obvious warning label that sets forth all of the known risks, including those found in independent studies, the patient could make an informed decision as to risks versus benefits.
In each of these mass pharmaceutical tort claims, the pharmaceutical companies were profiting from their fraudulent behavior. And tragically, they look at paying out on cases like mine as “the cost of doing business.” This is why high profile cases such as the Avandia settlement won’t protect patients.
My goals in representing you or a loved one who has been victimized by a bad drug are two-fold:
First and foremost, I want to help you obtain fair and equitable compensation for your permanent injuries. Secondly, if the drug is bad, it needs to be taken off the market, and I want to make sure that happens.
With my experience and significant resources, I am able to champion my clients’ fight against pharmaceutical giants and pursuing dangerous medications claims.
These large pharmaceutical companies will try to outspend and outlast people bringing claims. I can match them dollar for dollar. Furthermore, these cases sometimes don’t resolve for many years, and I have the resources and the lasting commitment to my clients to see their claim through to the end.
What to Expect
I am happy to meet with you at a time and place that is most convenient for you. Over the many years, I have accommodated my clients’ busy schedules by meeting them in the evenings and on weekends, at their homes, in the hospital, at their work place, at funeral homes and even cemeteries.
If I take your case, I will give you my direct dial cell phone number, so you will have complete access to me. The reason I do this is because, often times, critical communication about bad drug cases do not fit neatly into a 9-5, Monday through Friday work schedule.
My fee is a contingency which means it is a percentage based upon the total recovery. If I take your case, you won’t have to pay a single dime. No recovery? No fee, and I cover all of the costs associated with developing the claim.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to a bad drug you need to call me immediately at 1-800-55-MISNY.
