The Mass Tort Process -For those who have been harmed by a dangerous prescription drug or medical device.

The Initial Evaluation:

If we believe that we can help you, and you are comfortable with us, we will enter into a written agreement and move forward after your initial consultation. We will obtain your medical records and additional important information in order to properly evaluate your claim before a decision to file a lawsuit is made.

The Decision to Move Forward:

We can best determine how to go forward with your case after receiving your required information. Throughout the process, we will keep you informed about what is happening in your case.

Handling Your Case:

During the handling of your case, we may:

  • Obtain and review your medical records
  • Consult with experts
  • File a lawsuit
  • Conduct discovery (both specific to your case and about the defendant’s conduct generally)
  • Enter into negotiations in an effort to reach a monetary settlement
  • Take case(s) to trial, where appropriate
