Our site explains the obligations that drug companies and other manufacturers have toward society, the legal rights consumers have when these companies fail in their duty, and how The Driscoll Firm can help those who have been injured.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
The St. Louis personal injury lawyers of The Driscoll Firm, P.C., have launched a new informational website about its work to represent clients nationwide with legal claims against corporations, drug companies, medical device manufacturers and other parties responsible for their injuries.
The user-friendly site can be found at SettlementHelpers.com.
John J. Driscoll, a veteran St. Louis personal injury lawyer with a record of handling major mass tort litigation and the founder of The Driscoll Firm, P.C., said the new site can serve as a first step for injury victims, particularly those harmed by dangerous drugs and defective medical products.
The firm is currently investigating drug injury claims involving Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, Beyaz or Nuvaring birth control medications, bladder cancer from the diabetes medication Actos, internal bleeding hemorrhages from use of the blood thinner Pradaxa, and birth defects associated with a mother’s use of Depakote, Topamax, Paxil or Zoloft while pregnant.
“We titled our new website ‘Settlement Helpers’ because our main objective is to help people who are injured by a defective drug or medical device to reach an agreement as efficiently as possible, which can pay for their medical expenses, lost income, corrective surgeries, continuing disability and other expenses,” Driscoll said.
“Our site explains the obligations that drug companies and other manufacturers have toward society, the legal rights consumers have when these companies fail in their duty, and how The Driscoll Firm can help those who have been injured.”
The Driscoll Firm concentrates its practice on:
- Defective drugs
- Dangerous medical devices
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability
- Spinal cord injuries
- Birth injuries
- Brain injuries.
Pages on Settlement Helpers explain medical problems and legal action pertaining to such medical products as DePuy and Stryker hip implant systems, the Medtronic InFUSE bone graft and transvaginal mesh products used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
The firm also assists people injured in car accidents, premises liability cases, dog bites and other circumstances that have caused serious personal injury or wrongful death.
Driscoll said he hopes the site’s visitors will also become familiar with the Settlement Helpers blog.
“Our blog will keep up with news pertaining to product alerts and recalls as quickly as they are issued by government agencies or manufacturers,” he said. “Throughout our site, we’ve provided valuable information, and we’ll add to and update this information as time goes on.
“We hope the site will serve as a first step for those harmed by flawed drugs or medical products,” Driscoll added. “Of course, the next step is to contact an experienced attorney who can review the unique facts of an individual’s case, discuss their legal rights and options and, ultimately, fight to secure the compensation they deserve.”
