It has become apparent that there is a large number of drugs and devices class actions that have been filed against manyfacturers that have targeted women.
We can start with the Dow Corning siicone breast implant class action of years ago. Women are still suffering today. The Dow Corning Trust just recently launched a silicone breast implant explant program. The leaking silicone and bursting implants lead to toxicity related immune system diseases like lupus and fibromylagia and other immune deficiency diseases. Women to this date are still suffering from their Dow silicone Breast Implants and the Dow Corning settlement trust is stll living out payments like the new breast explant program.
Fosamax was supposed to cure osteoporosis but ended up causing femur fractures.Then we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. Young women were having their lives altered by pre-mature strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots and heart attacks. Many girls harmed were barely starting a college life.
History moves along to the metal on metal and metal componednt hip replacements like the DePuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement and the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II Modular Stems. These are a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for their need for revision surgery. These hip replacements failed in women more then men. The smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female structure.
NuvRing has been another disaster for women causing:
blood clots in women
cerebral thrombosis in women
deep vein thrombosis
heart attack in women
retinal thrombosis in women
stroke or cerebral hemorrhage
thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis with or without embolism
toxic shock syndrome
Fosamax for osteoporosis actually causes what it is prescribed to fix , femur fractures.

Lives are being ruined and justice must be sought. Lawsuits are the only thing these manufacturers understand.

Pay day loans in Florida are up and Pay Day Loan companies are attracting review for their practices of charging huge interest rates for out Florida residents who just cannot pay them on time. The Florida Supreme Court is looking at a payday loan class-action lawsuit suit.
Pay Day Loan Class Action Lawsuits
By Regan McCarthy
The Florida Supreme Court is considering whether a group seeking a class-action lawsuit against a check-advance company should be allowed to move forward with the case. Regan McCarthy reports The company argues the individuals signed contracts waiving their rights to class-action suits.
When Wendy Betts received a payday loan from McKenzie Check Advance she signed a contract waiving the right to file a class-action suit. Now she wants to bring a suit against the company, but she can’t find a lawyer willing to take her case individually, meaning her only option is to try for a class action suit, despite the contact she’d signed. Lawyers stand to make a lot more money through class action suits, than through individual cases, which generally are small claims wrapped up in complex issues. Paul Bland is the lawyer representing Betts and other members of a group hoping to sue the company together. Bland, says the waivers banning the class action suit should be thrown out because they’re keeping the people from being able to move forward with a case.
“If this arbitration clause had said, you have to go to Alaska to bring claims, that would be unenforceable. If the arbitration clause had said that the filing fees for the arbitrator would be a million dollars, there’s no doubt that that would be unenforceable. And t was a trial court’s finding that there was essentially no reasonable avenue other than a class action.”
But the company’s lawyer Jamie Bianchi says the issue is not about whether class action suits are good or bad, but about federal policy.
“There’s a federal goal of promoting arbitrations and we’re going to, as a policy the United States is going to follow it.”
And Justice Barbara Pariente says the state court will have to follow the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, whether the justices think it’s right or wrong.
“We’re here with the hand we’re dealt, which is in this case, the U.S. Supreme court and all the decisions after that.”
But, Pariente says she’s not certain the U.S. Supreme Court ruling takes into account whether there are other viable options for citizens blocked from class action suits. The court did not indicate when they expect to rule on the case.
Florida Pay Day Loan Laws
Under Florida law, payday lenders cannot seek to have a borrower prosecuted for bouncing a check given as security for a loan, so if the creditor is threatening to have you charged with "theft by check" it is almost certainly lying in an attempt to frighten you.
Although payday loans are legal in Florida, the amount of interest and other fees they can charge to consumers are fairly strictly regulated by state law.
Under Florida law, the payday lender may be required to work out a repayment plan with you at a reasonable interest rate.

Time to File Depends on the Date of Injury
Statutes of limitations are state laws that require plaintiffs to file their cases within set time periods. Because all defective medical device lawsuits are tort claims, they are covered by state law and not federal law. Any medical device lawsuits before U.S. District Courts are claims brought under state law by plaintiffs from states other than the ones in which the manufacturers are located. The purpose of statutes of limitations is to encourage injured parties to bring their claims in a timely manner to prevent courts from dealing with old records and hazy memories.
The amount of time a statute of limitations gives someone to file a claim depends on the type of claim the plaintiff is filing. Commonly, the limitations period for products liability cases is two or three years from the date of injury. When the injury occurred matters significantly from a legal standpoint. Sometimes, the injury “occurs” the day the vaginal mesh was implanted; other times it “occurs” when the plaintiff first knew or could have reasonably found out about the injury. This can be troubling for vaginal mesh recipients because the pain and symptoms of mesh erosion might not occur until long after the initial procedure. Because some women might have already had their vaginal mesh problems resolved years ago and didn’t meet with a Vaginal mesh lawyer, the statute of limitations might have already expired for them, and they will be unable to obtain compensation via a transvaginal mesh lawsuit. If you are having complications ffrom a vaginal mesh it is in your best interests not to wait and file with a lawyer immediately. You must not run the risk of losing your rights to file a lawsuit. The vaginal mesh complications are sever and the mesh implants are ruining lives. You Must send a message and contact a lawyer today. 1 877 522-2123

Vaginal Mesh- History of the Problem
Between the years of 2005 and 2010, nearly 4,000 vaginal mesh injuries have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration. In a 2010 article in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, researchers stated that they had to cease a vaginal mesh clinical trial early because of the higher-than-expected number of complications and injuries. The trial was stopped when it was discovered that more than 15 percent of women who were implanted with vaginal mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within only three months of implantation. As a result of numerous negative reports, the FDA issued a vaginal mesh warning to patients and physicians in 2011, cautioning that the risks of using vaginal mesh are so severe that alternative treatments should be considered. It is now widely accepted that, in most cases, pelvic organ prolapsed can be treated without the use of vaginal mesh
