Wyoming Dangerous Drugs & Medical Device Attorneys

What Can Dangerous Drugs Do?

When you’re not feeling well and your medical provider writes out a prescription, you naturally trust the medication prescribed will treat your condition and make you feel better. The last thing you expect is that the medicine will do the opposite and actually make you worse. In fact, some drugs can actually cause debilitating, lifelong injuries, and even wrongful death.

Despite the Food and Drug Administration’s stringent protocols to ensure drug safety, medications can sometimes be released to the public before they’re ready, which can put millions of unsuspecting patients at risk. In today’s intensely competitive pharmaceutical marketplace, manufacturers often rush drugs to market to generate immediate profits. In doing so, pharmaceutical giants can fail to properly test and evaluate the safety of their products. This may include failing to properly research potential side effects and complications that could be the result of interactions with other drugs and devices.

For years, our Cody Wyoming attorneys have been leading the way nationally in mass tort litigation. Federal judges have appointed several of our lawyers to take the lead in several high-profile drug and pharmaceutical litigation claims. We’ve successfully represented thousands of individuals and obtained more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients in cases involving drugs such as Ortho Evra, Gadolinium- Based Contrast Agents, Vioxx, Propulsid, Heparin, Zyprexa, Bextra/Celebrex, Fen-Phen, PPA, and the use of human tissue, to name a few.

Our Wyoming attorneys have also lead the charge in national pharmaceutical litigation involving the oral birth control pill Yasmin/Yaz, and we’ve also been chosen to serve as leadership in pending litigation involving the recall of DePuy ASRTM Hip Replacement Systems.

If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt, or suffered painful side effects from a prescription drug, Burg Simpson Wyoming is here to help. Don’t suffer in silence. Call us at 307-527-7891 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation Form right now to discuss your case.

Unsafe Medical Devices

Medical devices are nothing short of modern medical miracles used to help people recapture the quality of life they’ve lost after an injury – or when age has so wracked the body that it can’t work the same way it once did. Sadly, though, some of these medical devices, whether they’re meant to be used temporarily or permanently, can become defective and dangerous. In short, these medical marvels of engineering can turn into time bombs, causing serious and even life-threatening injuries. Even when these devices have been discovered to be unsafe, it requires another risky surgical procedure to remove and/or replace it, which requires even more time spent recovering.

Some of the defective medical devices claims we handle include:

  • Heart valves.
  • Artificial joints.
  • Knee Joint replacements.
  • Gadolinium dyes.
  • Artificial Hip replacements.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by a dangerous or unsafe medical device, our lawyers in Cody are here to help. We’ve been handling mass tort litigation for over 40 years, so we know what to look for and the best way to secure compensation for your injuries. Contact a litigation attorney at Burg Simpson as soon as possible by calling 307-527-7891 or filling out our Free Case Evaluation Form immediately. Don’t wait and hope you start to feel better – take action before it’s too late.
