Mass Tort Matters
Defective products do not only include medical devices or drugs. Any consumer product may contain a defect that leads to injury or death. Some of the most common products involved in liability lawsuits in the U.S. are auto parts, children’s toys, household appliances, cosmetics, and foods. In our years of experience handling product liability claims, we have seen a range of personal injuries arising from defective and dangerous goods.
SPBMCC is at the forefront of some of the country's most crucial mass tort litigation. We represent thousands of individuals harmed by toxic exposures from 9/11, representing the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and firefighters to eradicate PFAS in their protective gear and obtain compensation for cancer caused by PFAS exposures, and representing plaintiffs nationwide in the recently established Exactech knee, hip, and ankle multi-district litigation (MDL).
Defective product cases include medical devices, drugs, and consumer products such as Roundup weedkiller or Johnson’s Baby Powder. In some cases, the products themselves cause harm to individuals, while in other cases, toxic chemicals or materials used to manufacture the products are the cause of injuries. SPBMCC has an experienced products liability team, who have litigated a wide range of product cases involving defective and dangerous medical devices/drugs and consumer goods ranging from Talcum Powder to Exactech® knee implants.
SPBMCC is Currently Accepting Referrals for:
- Talcum Powder
- Camp Lejeune
- Hernia Mesh
- Philips CPAP Recall
- 3M Military Earplugs
