“Because of our significant experience in drug injury litigation, especially against one of the major manufacturers of PPIs, we are uniquely prepared to undertake the challenges of these cases to achieve the best possible results for our clients."

Bailey Peavy Bailey Cowan Heckaman partner Camp Bailey was recently appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) in In re: Proton-Pump Inhibitor Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2789 by United Stated District Judge Claire C. Cecchi of the District of New Jersey. National cases against the makers of proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) like Nexium and Prilosec are being consolidated for pretrial proceedings in Judge Cecchi’s court.

PPIs are a type of drug used to provide patients with a noticeable and long-lasting reduction of gastric acid production in their stomachs in order to help prevent acid reflux and/or heartburn. However, a considerable number of patients have been affected by life-threatening side-effects after taking this type of medication. The lawsuit alleges that the ingestion of defective PPIs can result in acute interstitial nephritis, chronic kidney disease, renal failure and end stage renal disease.

Bailey, a founding member of the firm, has spent his legal career handling cases representing working people who were unnecessarily injured through occupational exposures against some of the largest corporations in the world.

“Because of our significant experience in drug injury litigation, especially against one of the major manufacturers of PPIs, we are uniquely prepared to undertake the challenges of these cases to achieve the best possible results for our clients,” said Bailey “We are honored to have been selected for a leadership role in the PPI cases.”
