Mississippi Mass Tort Lawyer

Protecting the Rights of Consumers for 35+ Years

One Call That's All Logo A mass tort is a single tort, or wrongful act, that results in injury to a large number of victims. Whereas class action lawsuits involve all of the victims suing a defendant together in one lawsuit, in mass torts, the victims all sue the defendant separately in individual lawsuits seeking compensation for the defendant’s negligence.

Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. is committed to protecting the rights of consumers in top mass tort cases. Our firm is currently reviewing cases related to defective drugs and medical devices. If you or a loved one has suffered injury as a result of a dangerous pharmaceutical or defective medical device, contact our Mississippi attorneys to see if you have a case.

Examples of recent defective drug/medical device lawsuits include:

  • 3M Earplugs - Military issued earplugs with a known defect that causes the noise cancelling devices to loosen over time, causing permanent damage
  • Attune Knee Replacements, which have failed at a higher than expected rate, can cause the knee to come loose from a patient's tibia bone causing extreme pain, limited mobility and possible severe infection.
  • Bair Hugger surgical blankets, which may spread germs and bacteria over a surgical wound and cause infection
  • Belviq, a weight loss drug that has been known to cause cancer
  • Elmiron, a medication for interstitial cystitis that has recently been linked to retinal damage and vision loss
  • Invokana, a Diabetes drug linked to kidney problems, ketoacidosis, and other serious side effects
  • IVC blood clot filters, which may break, become dislodged, and cause internal organ perforation
  • Johnson & Johnson talcum powders, which have been linked to the development of ovarian cancer
  • Metal-on-metal hip implants, which may send shards of metal into the bloodstream and which require additional surgery to remove and replace
  • Transvaginal mesh, which may erode through the vaginal wall or other organs and which can be extremely difficult to remove
  • Xarelto, a blood thinning medication that may cause uncontrolled bleeding for which there is no antidote
