Drugs & Medical Devices
Our firm has experience in handling litigation claims and insurance coverage issues on behalf of major pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies. The experience ranges from the representation of clients in litigation relating to the birth control medication DES to the current litigation revolving around the weight loss drug combination known as fen-phen. Our attorneys' experiences also involve claims against pharmacies for alleged errors in dispensing and compounding medications.
Litigating claims on behalf of pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies requires unique knowledge not commonly required in more typical personal injury lawsuits. For example, claims involving pharmaceutical companies must take into consideration federal law as well as Food and Drug Administration regulations. Similarly, claims against pharmacies are affected by provisions of the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA). Our many years of experience in this area have allowed us to develop a solid understanding of the complexity of these cases.
