History OF Drugs and Medical Devices Harming Women

Manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceutical companies are putting products on the market that target women. The result is more drugs and devices lawsuits being filed by women.

  • Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits,
  • Vaginal Sling Lawsuits,
  • Yaz blood clot lawyers for Yaz  Lawsuits,
  • Zofran lawyers For  Birth Defect- cleft palate, cleft lip, Hole In the Heart
  • Baby powder lawsuit attorneys for ovarian cancer

And many more are flooding our courtrooms

In May of 2013, the American Association of Justice (AAJ) published an article titled Unequal Harm. (http://www.justice.org/cps/rde/xchg/justice/hs.xsl/20936.htm)

These products are injuring one specific group, women.

The vaginal mesh lawsuits may be the largest mass tort lawsuits to date against manufacturers who care more about products then a woman’s health.

There is currently a 2 million dollar  settlement  reached by a jury for one plaintiff against Bard pharmaceuticals.  This may just be the most costly lawsuits for these manufacturers of  dangerous drugs and devices to date. We encourage all women to file their vaginal mesh lawsuit immediately.
