Drug & Medical Device Litigation

Ury & Moskow, LLC has offices in Connecticut and Washington, DC devoted to representing individuals who have been injured by dangerous and defective drugs and medical devices. Improperly designed, manufactured, or labeled drugs and medical devices can cause serious injury or death. When that happens, lawsuits are sometimes brought against the manufacturer, and anyone else in the chain of commerce, in what are known as “pharmaceutical and medical device product liability” cases. These cases are sometimes called “mass torts,” too.

Our Firm has represented people around the country who allege injury from defective drugs and devices, often working closely with local attorneys. We have successfully resolved numerous Fen-Phen, Baycol, Zyprexa, Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) and Ephedra cases, recovering millions and millions of dollars for our clients. We continue to work for our clients to recover damages resulting from their use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT, Prempro), Vioxx, Ortho Evra, Trasylol, Zyprexa, Ephedra and Guidant Implantable Defibrillators.

A successful claim for injuries caused by a drug or medical device requires thorough preparation and planning. There are many complex legal and scientific issues that will arise, and it is essential that your attorney have a thorough understanding of these issues. Our attorneys have years of experience in this specialized field, and have played key roles in mass torts nationwide. Accordingly, if you believe you or a loved one has been injured by a defective drug or medical device, please call our lawyers or e-mail our law firm or click to Contact Us.

Examples Of Our Advocacy In Mass Tort Litigation
Our lawyers have been deeply involved in mass torts related to dangerous and defective drugs, medical devices, chemicals and consumer products. Here are just a few examples:
  • Tylenol/Acetaminophen – Studies have shown that women taking acetaminophen during pregnancy have an increased risk of giving birth to children with autism spectrum disorders and/or ADHD
  • Exactech Knees – an artificial knee replacement product that may result in premature device failure because of a manufacturing defect.
  • Roundup weed killer – This widely used herbicide has been linked to deadly forms of cancer in people who were regularly exposed to it, typically while applying it to crops and other vegetation.
  • Pradaxa – an anticoagulant medication that can lead to uncontrolled bleeding and, in some cases, death.
  • Xarelto – an anticoagulant medication that can lead to uncontrolled bleeding and, in some cases, death.
  • Zyprexa – an antidepressant medication that can lead to diabetes, serious health consequences and, in some cases, death.
  • Trasylol – a procoagulant medication that can lead to kidney failure, and in some cases, death.
  • The HeartWare Ventricular Assist Device (HVAD) – a medical device to keep the heart pumping blood for patients in need of a heart transplant. The devices, made by Medtronic, were recalled in 2021 due to problems that can lead to heart attack, stroke and death.
  • Zimmer hip implants – An artificial hip replacement with an unacceptably high rate of failure, leading to serious pain and the need for additional surgeries for hundreds of patients.
