Below are just a few mass injury and class action lawsuits Doyle APC attorneys are working on.
Thousands of personal injury lawsuits have been filed against hernia mesh manufacturers. Most of these lawsuits allege that the hernia mesh manufacturers failed to warn doctors and patients of the severe complications associated with their products.
Some hernia lawsuits also allege design and manufacturing defects in these medical devices resulting in severe injuries to the implant recipients.
The FDA’s 510(k) approval allowed these companies to fast-track these devices to the market without taking reasonable time to research the potential complications.
The device manufacturers’ negligence, the lawsuits allege, has caused needless pain and suffering. Many patients have endured repeated surgeries, suffered dangerous infections, perforated organs or bowels, and experienced severe and life-altering pain.
Amiodarone, also sold under the brand names Cordarone and Pacerone, are extremely dangerous drugs that was FDA approved for the limited purpose of treating recurring, life-threatening ventricular fibrillation (VFib) but only as a last resort after all other treatments have failed.
Amiodarone-induced pulmonary fibrosis or toxicity is a potentially deadly complication from Amiodarone use.
We have filed many lawsuits for AFib patients who developed pulmonary fibrosis/toxicity or blindness after being prescribed Amiodarone to treat AFib.
These AFib patients, many of whom have debilitating and deadly lung diseases, should never have been prescribed Amiodarone.
California has experienced catastrophic wildfire seasons for over a decade. For the past couple of years, we’ve had both the largest wildfire in modern history and the most destructive wildfire occurring within months of each other.
While many wildfire victims have insurance, their coverage is usually inadequate to completely rebuild or replace their home and restore their property to pre-fire conditions.
Insurance is also typically inadequate to compensate victims for lost personal property, not to mention the unique items that have little to no intrinsic value but are priceless to the owners.
Wildfire victims are filing lawsuits against negligent electrical utilities to recoup their losses.
