Defective drug and medical device litigation usually involves filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the drug or device. Because so many people take the same drug, there might be hundreds or even thousands of claimants filing lawsuits against the manufacturer at any given time.
Many people mistakenly believe that this is a class action, it is not. It is considered a mass tort, which means that all similar claims may be assigned to a single judge in a central location, yet each claim is handled individually by your attorney.
Bohrer & Lukeman has successfully represented clients in cases ranging from drugs such as Phen and Vioxx, to medical devices such as the Guidant heart defibrillator. We are currently investigating claims on behalf of users of the nasal spray Zicam and other drugs.
Just recently, we represented a major New York County against the makers of Vytorin and Zetia and helped secure a $41 million dollar settlement on behalf of “third party payors” who purchased the drugs based on misleading or inaccurate information.
