My Personal Injury and Medical Practice Focus
Since 1976, I have focused on representing people in the Phoenix area who were harmed due to:
- Serious auto accidents : If you have been seriously injured or a loved one was killed in a car accident, truck accident or motorcycle accident, you can trust in my experience, knowledge and skill. During these difficult times, I will handle all legal matters while you focus on your recovery.
- Medical malpractice : I apply extraordinary insight into medical malpractice and birth injury claims, and can establish liability in otherwise difficult cases where a health care professional has failed to live up to the standards of his or her community.
I also handle cases involving pharmacy malpractice and pharmaceutical liability. In fact, I have handled and am handling cases involving most of the mass tort product liability cases against some of the nation’s largest pharmaceutical companies.
- Mass tort product liability cases: Years ago, I successfully handled over 50 defective hip replacement cases against device manufacturer Sulzer Orthopedics. I am currently handling many defective metal-on-metal hip replacement cases, where my clients, as a result of a product defect had loosening of the implant and metal toxicity, resulted in the removal and revision of the defective implant. I am currently representing clients in cases involving the following metal-on-metal hips: DePuy ASR, DePuy Pinnacle, Zimmer, Stryker, Wright Medical, Biomet, Encore and Smith & Nephew. I am representing injured victims in the transvaginal mesh and bladder sling cases involving the following manufacturers: American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, Ethicon and Coloplast. I am also representing clients in the Zimmer NexGen knee replacement cases, and cases involving the following products: Januvia, Zoloft, Propecia, Lipitor, and Yaz/Yasmin. Finally, I am investigating cases involving Xarelto, and will continue to investigate products that may cause harm to the public.
Handling a Variety of Serious and Fatal Injury Claims in Arizona
Catastrophic injuries can take away your ability to earn a living and can decrease your overall enjoyment of life. These are factors that must be accounted for when preparing and developing your case. Throughout my 35-plus year career, I have won millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients who have suffered some of the most devastating injuries imaginable, including traumatic brain injuries and paralysis.
I also handle wrongful death cases. While it is not possible to change the past, I can work to help you secure a satisfactory outcome, which not only guarantees that you will be provided for, but also ensures that justice has been served.
