Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class MDL Class Action News, Mass tort lawyer

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.

Class action Stryker lawsuit lawyers are filing lawsuit for the failed Stryker hip replacement where revision surgery is needed. We suggest you see an orthpedic doctor immediately.

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation is considering  forming an MDL to handle the growing number of Stryker lawsuits. Both the Rejuvenate and the ABG II hip implants were recalled in July 2012. This was done due to  reports that  the implants were  causing  complications including loosening of the joint, corrosion, and increased risk of inflammation as well as metal toxicity.  Many  victims of these  failed devices have had to undergo revision surgery to remove and replace them long before they reached the end of their expected 15-20 year lifespan. On March 18, 2013, Stryker filed a brief with the JPML, agreeing that coordination of lawsuits involving the recalled devices was appropriate.

Such injuries are alleged by about 3,200 of the pending unsettled claimants. Bayer will continue to consider the option of settling individual lawsuits in the U.S. on a case-by-case basis.

BAAQMD Finds 23 'Potentially Toxic Pollutants' in Air Around Chevron Fire, Says 'Well Under Exposure Levels'
August 7, 2012, 8:18 pm • Posted by Jon Brooks
 

Statement from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District on air quality samples the agency took around the Richmond fire:

    The Air District had inspectors at the scene of the August 6 Chevron fire, collecting air quality samples from the surrounding area. These were sent to the Air District’s lab at 6 a.m. this morning, and the results came in this afternoon.

    The results of our lab analysis of air samples from the Chevron fire show levels of these potentially toxic pollutants to be well under their reference exposure levels or RELs, and not a significant health concern. These concentrations were similar to the “background” levels measured throughout the Bay Area by our monitoring network.

    The Air District lab tested these air quality samples for a group of 23 compounds, most of which have been identified by the state of California as Toxic Air Contaminants. The Air District regularly tests and measures amounts of these compounds through its air monitoring network. These pollutants are organic compounds typically found in petroleum products.

    The Air District also performed an additional analysis to identify and estimate concentrations of any other pollutants that might show up in significant amounts.

    Reference Exposure Levels, or RELS, were developed by the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment as public health measurements based on epidemiological evidence and sensitive populations. RELS are set at levels that could impact sensitive populations – children, the elderly, or those with pre-existing health issues or respiratory conditions.

    Local air quality monitors also showed near normal concentrations of air pollution from the fire, with pollution levels significantly below federal health standards. Weather conditions were favorable at the time of the incident – surface winds were light and heat pushed the smoke upwards where stronger winds aloft helped to disperse it.

    As part of the investigation, the Air District has reviewed air quality monitoring data from monitors at the Chevron facility. Chevron’s findings were consistent with the Air District’s.
