Placing Safety of Patients Over Profit

Medicines and medical devices are supposed to treat illnesses and conditions, and help alleviate a patient’s suffering.  Examples of these products include: prescription and over-the-counter drugs, hip implants, and pacemakers.  When products such as these are negligently designed, however, serious injury may result, and the law provides that the manufacturers of such products may be held accountable.  No one should suffer because a drug or medical device manufacturer “cut corners” in the making of its product, choosing profits over the safety of patients.

The best and surest way to be compensated for your injury and to hold manufacturers responsible for their negligence is to seek out an experienced drug and medical device injury attorney, like one on our team at Seeger Weiss LLP.

Seeger Weiss’ expertise and success in drug or medical device injury litigation has earned it a reputation as one of the leading firms in the nation. We have the experience and resources to take on even the largest and most-well financed manufacturers and adversaries.  Over the last 20 years, Seeger Weiss has won or favorably settled thousands of cases on behalf of our clients and their families, providing them with the compensation and support they need and deserve.  Some recent examples and success include:

Examples:

  • Seeger Weiss served as Lead Counsel in litigation against AbbVie Inc. and other manufacturers, concerning their testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) products. The firm served as trial counsel in several bellwether trials against AbbVie over their testosterone product AndroGel, winning federal jury verdicts greater than $150 million in the first case and $140 million in the second. The firm continues to represent plaintiffs in the ongoing litigation.

 

  • Seeger Weiss was lead counsel for a multidistrict litigation involving approximately 27,000 separate cases against Merck & Co. over recalled pain medication Vioxx, associated with cardiovascular injuries including heart attacks. Following five years of intense litigation, Seeger Weiss was one of the lead negotiators of a $4.85 billion settlement.  In another litigation involving similar paid medications, Bextra and Celebrex, Seeger Weiss helped negotiate a $894 million settlement.

 

  • Seeger Weiss was a member of the Executive Committee and Negotiating Committee on behalf of thousands of victims who brought lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and subsidiary Depuy Orthopaedics, alleging that their defective ASR hip replacement implants caused infections and other complications, requiring revision surgery. The firm ultimately negotiated an almost $3 billion settlement.
