Personal Injury: Pharmaceutical Products Liability
Pharmaceutical Products Liability has been a major area of my law practice for over 18 years. I have successfully represented individuals injured by the Diet Drugs known as Fen-Phen, the cholesterol drug Baycol, and the arthritis drug Vioxx among many others. Fen-phen involved the recalled diet drugs Pondimin and Redux that the Mayo Clinic found to have caused serious heart valvular disease, as well as a serious heart/lung condition known as primary pulmonary hypertension. Baycol litigation involved the recalled cholesterol lowering drug Baycol that was found to have an alarmingly high rate of the serious muscle break-down condition rhabdomyolysis. This condition led to kidney failure and deaths among an unacceptably high number of Baycol users. Vioxx litigation involved the recalled arthritis medication that was found to cause heart attacks and ischemic strokes. With all these recalled medications there was a common theme, companies not heeding warnings and seriously injured users of their products. As an attorney who is also a board certified physician, I am in an unique position to assess whether an individual was injured by a recalled medication. If you or a loved one believe they have been injured by a medication, please contact attorney Dr. Lawrence Paikoff by email with our form or call (530) 297-1144.
Personal Injury: Medical Device Litigation
Medical Device Litigation has been another significant aspect of my law practice the last 15 years. I have successfully represented individuals injured by the recalled defective Sulzer Hip and Knee joints, Depuy, Biomet and Wright Metal on Metal hips. I represented individuals that received contaminated heart valves that caused life threatening injuries. The complexity of the medicine required my expertise as an attorney-physician to obtain the best possible results for my clients. Please contact attorney Dr. Lawrence Paikoff by email with our form or call (530) 297-1144.
Personal Injury: Food-Borne Illness
Food-borne illness is becoming a growing problem in this country. Either the lack of sufficient regulations or the enforcement of existing health regulations are believed to be the explanations for this growing problem. Recent outbreaks of Salmonella infection, from contaminated peanut products, are only the latest in a serious of such food-borne illness outbreaks. The E. Coli contaminated spinach outbreak also received national attention with numerous individuals becoming sick, and several deaths reported. As a former public health official, I was involved with a major outbreak of Hepatitis A infection that was ultimately traced to food handlers. This background in public health combined with my extensive experience in products liability gives me a unique ability to evaluate potential food-borne illness cases. If you or a loved one believes you have been harmed by contaminated food products, please contact attorney Dr. Lawrence Paikoff by email with our form or call (530) 297-1144 as soon as possible.
