What Does  A Class Action Lawyer Do?

What Does A Mass Tort Lawyer Do?

A  Class Action  lawyer files a lawsuit on behalf of an entire group of people who share similar injuries or damages.  These collective lawsuits in one jurisdiction are designed to cut down on the number of court cases that arise when many are harmed by the same thing.

Mass Torts For Dangerous Drugs and Devices

Mass Tort lawyer would file both mass tort and class action claims.  Class Action lawsuits are a type of Mass Tort claims. Mass Tort claims are brought when victims are injured by defective drugs or defective products. Drugs and product defects can cause a wide range of problems and injuries. Mass tort litigation lets one attorney or groups of attorneys represent several injured parties in individual cases. The investigation conducted by one attorney can be shared among all cases. Our  nationwide network of Mass Tort  lawyers can pool resources, information and ideas to ensure all individuals receive fair settlements for their injuries.

Januvia, Byetta MDL Formed for Pancreatic Cancer, Lawyers Filing Lawsuits

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Janument Panceratic Cancer Lawyer

Byetta and Januvia Lawsuits Consolidated In California District Court

Victoza, Janumet, Januvia and Byetta lawsuits have been  consolidated  as the Incretin Mimetics Product Liability Litigation in the Southern District of California before Judge Anthony J. Battaglia. This will cover lawsuits for pancreatic cancer.

The cnacer related  lawsuits bring claims against several manufacturers.  The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML)has decided  to coordinate  incretin mimetic complaints as one MDL. Most of the  patients took a combination of the diabetes drugs before discovering their side effects and complications. “Plaintiffs in the cases now before us, however, make highly similar allegations about each of the four drugs that manage blood insulin levels and the propensity of those drugs to cause pancreatic cancer…Several plaintiffs took more than one of the drugs at issue, which suggests that discovery specific to the plaintiffs in those cases will involve many of the same or substantially similar documents and witnesses.”

Januvia, Byetta, Victoza and Janumet lawyers of Class Action Lawyer Network are accepting cases with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer that can be linked to these drugs.  You  must be able to  establish that you developed pancreatic cancer from side effects of one of these diabetes drugs.  You may be  eligible for compensation if you have taken or are taking Januvia, Byetta, or Victoza and have been diagnosed with pancreatic or thyroid cancer while on the medication or shortly after. You must have no prior history of pancreatic cancer.Januvia and Janumet lawsuits are being considered for individuals who have been diagnosed with acute pancreatitis, hemorrhagic pancreatitis or necrotizing pancreatitis.

The Horror of the Vaginal mesh, Transvaginal Mesh

Written by Class Action Lawyer on . Posted in Medical Device Lawsuits

Women are coming together nationwide sharing a common misery, the vaginal mesh. With promises of help by their doctors they allowed a prolene fiber sling mesh product to be implanted in their bodies. These mesh products are failing and substances akin to barbed wire are coming loose. They are eroding thru the vaginal wall piercing their partners causing pain beyond belief.

The mesh was originally thought to be the answer to organ prolapse. In a womens body the pelvic floor is an inticate system of muscles that secure and protect the uterus, Bladder and bowel. There muscles are akin to a hammock holding everthing in place. Genetics, age,Child birth, or hysterectomy can cause a weakening of these muscles leading to prolapse. The prolapse can be minimal or severe, resulting in a once secure organ moving, falling or prolapsing into the vaginal canal. A prolpased bladder can cause serve incontinence.

These prolene mesh devices were presented as the answer to this problem but, they have cause complications that have been so severe that they are ruining lives. Women are coming together in support groups  but ,many feel alone and confused. Their marriages are failing and the doctors who put  these transvaginal mesh products into them  are claiming lost records and are avoiding their patients.  Women are being told they are just complainers and many are being sent home with anti depressants. Some doctors have been brave enough to step forward. Thes doctors are to be commended for putting the patient first.

I have collected many stories from across the internet to share with women. Your are not alone. Many women share your pain and now you must stand up with others:

Thanks to a surgical mesh that was implanted in 2007, 65-year-old Marci Sutin Levin is in such excruciating pain that she can't work, sleep through the night, or have sex. "The pain of childbirth was finite, and you're delivering a child," she says. "This was very, very different. It's relentless, and it's untenable. And it doesn't lead to anything."

“I don’t think I’m going to get any better,” says Holt, now 54, who has had to cut back on work at her family’s five restaurants and can no longer ride horses or play baseball with her young grandson.

"I still have the mesh inside my body.  I don’t have enough money to buy the right kind of insurance and still leave me enough to pay my way in life.  There are days when I want to rip it out of myself and scream at the world.  Then there are days when I pick myself up and make my life worthwhile.  These mesh manufacturers cannot be allowed to take our lives away from us."

"Between them, the women figured they had undergone 45 surgical procedures to try to undo the damage resulting from vaginal surgery using synthetic mesh devices. The mesh implants were supposed to free them from the intimate discomforts that millions of women face after childbirth and as they age: pelvic organ prolapse, in which stretched, weakened tissues can allow the bladder or other organs to sag or bulge into the vagina, and stress urinary incontinence, which can lead to involuntary leakage with every laugh or cough. Once implanted, the hammock-like mesh was meant to shore up the supportive pelvic tissues and help keep sagging organs in place."

Complications associated with transvaginal mesh include:

  •     Chronic Infection;
  •     Chronic vaginal drainage;
  •     Bleeding;
  •     Erosion of the mesh through tissue;
  •     Pain during sex;
  •     Pain unrelated to intercourse;
  •     inability to have sexual intercourse
  •     bleeding
  •     psychological problems
  •     lower back pain, pain on one side of the body
  •     Recurring feeling of pressure or fullness in the lower abdomen;
  •     Feeling of something protruding from the vagina;
  •     Vaginal shortening or tightening;
  •     Difficult bowel movements;
  •     Recurrence of SUI or prolapsed organs;
  •     Repair-related damage to tissue and organs; and,
  •     Bladder outlet obstructions.
