Below are just a few mass injury and class action lawsuits Doyle APC attorneys are currently working on.
Thousands of personal injury lawsuits have been filed against hernia mesh manufacturers. Most of these lawsuits allege the hernia mesh manufacturers failed to warn doctors and patients of the serious complications associated with their products.
Some hernia lawsuits also allege design and manufacturing defects exist in these medical devices resulting in serious 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 had to endure repeat surgeries, suffer dangerous infections, perforated organs or bowels and experience serious, life-altering pain.
Over 650 lawsuits have been filed in federal and state courts across the United States against the 3M Company for allegedly defective ear plugs 3M distributed to the United States Government and used by the U.S. Military and the U.S. Border Patrol.
The ear plugs, Dual-Ended Combat ArmsTM Earplugs (CAEV2), had a unique dual-ended design with the yellow colored end intended to allow the user to hear low level sounds while the green or olive colored end does not allow any sound to pass through and is to be used when intense sounds are expected.
If you served overseas between 2003 and 2015, believe you’ve worn the 3M Combat Arms Earplugs and have been diagnosed with tinnitus or hearing loss, you may have a claim for compensation.
Amiodarone, also sold under the brand names Cordarone® and Pacerone®, are extremely dangerous drugs that were 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 a number of lawsuits on behalf of AFib patients who developed pulmonary fibrosis/toxicity or blindness after being prescribed Amiodarone for treatment of the 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, it is usually inadequate to completely rebuild or replace the home and real property destroyed to pre-fire condition.
It is also typically inadequate to compensate victims for all of the personal property lost, not to mention the personal items which have little to no intrinsic value, but which are priceless to the owners.
Wildfire victims are filing lawsuits against negligent electrical utilities to recoup all of their losses.
