Medical Device Mass Tort Lawsuits

Medical device injuries tend to affect multiple people in the same way. Therefore, lawsuits against device manufacturers are often handled in a type of lawsuit called a "mass tort".

A mass tort happens multiple cases are brought together in a single court and evidence is shared between the cases. Mass torts are often confused with class action lawsuits, but they are actually very different. In class actions, a large number of plaintiffs are all given the same judgment; in mass torts each individual case is valued.

Experienced Medical Device Mass Tort Attorneys

Our firm has successfully pursued claims against some of the largest device manufacturers in the world. In many cases, we have led the way in aggressively pursuing the manufacturers of dangerous medical devices. For example, founding partner Mikal Watts litigated and won one of the first Sulzer hip trials, when he represented Naomi Bonorden, Helen Rupp and Lillian Sallinger, who received an award from Sulzer Medica. The Sulzer hip trial was won when Mr. Watts proved that defective hip implants led to painful extraction and revision surgeries.

We have obtained some of the largest and most well known results in American legal history for our clients. From our offices throughout Texas, we serve hundreds of thousands of clients nationwide.
