Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices
We expect drug companies and medical device manufacturers to sell products that are safe and effective for their intended use. Most medical product providers adhere to this expectation; unfortunately, some do not.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) relies on companies to test their products and report know side effects before a drug or medical device is approved for sale. The FDA does not test products; instead, it relies on the testing reports from companies seeking approval. When a drug or device manufacture fails to report known complications or side effects to the FDA, manipulates data, or fails to test its products adequately, consumers can suffer dramatic injuries or death. In these instances, where a company puts its profits ahead of consumer safety, a consumer can file a lawsuit for damages.
Hawkins & Walker, PC partners with some of the most talented and experienced attorneys and law firms throughout the United States for assisiting consumers in filing lawsuits against product manufacturers. This partnership allows us to work with leading law firms to streamline cases and build the strongest claim for both liability and damages. Partnering also enables us to provide better communications with our clients while the parter firms handle the day-to-day litigation. The best part is the partnership does not increase the fee for our clients; instead, the fee is split between our firm and the partnering firm so that you have more attorneys for the same fee. These cases are taken on contingency, which means we only take a fee if we are successful. Unlike other lawsuits, you will not have to pay an hourly rate and cover expenses. It costs nothing for you to pursue this claim with Hawkins & Walker, PC.
