Pharmaceutical and Drug Product Injuries
Pennsylvania and New Jersey Defective Drugs Lawyer
Messa & Associates has been recognized as a leader in mass tort law suits that have resulted in large and fair settlements for injured people due to defective drugs. Mr. Messa has been appointed by federal and state courts on a number of occasions as lead counsel and to serve on various committees in these cases. We also represent individuals who are injured as a result of a defective drug or device, including Phen-Fen, Vioxx, pacemakers, hips, knees, spinal implants, drug-eluting stents, and more, assuring they are compensated appropriately for their injuries. Some of the verdicts and settlements obtained by our Philadelphia defective drugs and medical device attorneys:
$120 Million total settlement for plaintiffs injured as a result of implantation of spinal bone screws into the spine during spinal fusion procedures. AcroMed marketed the orthopedic bone screws to alleviate back pain, but thousands of patients claimed that the screws actually exacerbated their pain, often breaking after they were implanted in the patients’ spines.
$20 Million total settlement for clients injured as a result of ingestion of the diet drug Fen-Phen.
$1.25 Million total recovery for a client who suffered permanent damage to his heart as a result of his physician’s negligence in prescribing a dangerous dosage of Vioxx.
