Power Morcellators

These surgical instruments can help patients seeking treatment of various uterine conditions to avoid invasive surgery. But when power morcellators are used to treat women with undiagnosed uterine cancer, they can actually distribute cancer cells deeper into the uterus, advancing its spread and often delaying diagnosis.

Pelvic Mesh

Pelvic mesh has been used for years to help women whose abdominal wall muscles are no longer able to independently support the bladder or uterus. But in many cases, this mesh can become embedded within the muscles or tissue, causing pain and even hemorrhaging.

Xarelto

This blood thinner is a favorite of many doctors because, unlike heparin, it doesn’t require patients to undergo regular blood tests. Unfortunately, also unlike heparin, there is no antidote to Xarelto; those who inadvertently take too much of this medication may bleed to death even after seeking medical treatment.

If you’ve suffered injuries that can be directly attributed to a drug you were legally prescribed or a device implanted in you, you have the right to recover compensatory and sometimes punitive damages from the manufacturer.

Bad drug and medical device lawsuits are a type of personal injury claim and are usually pursued under state—rather than federal—law. In Boise, these claims are litigated at the Ada County Courthouse.

Since medical negligence and product liability lawsuits can involve some complicated science in addition to the straightforward legal claims, it may be months or even years before your case sees the inside of a courtroom. Because of this, it’s crucial to have an attorney who has experience in these types of claims and can guide you through the process.

what you need to know about boise class actions

01

A class action allows for a group of people with similar injuries to file a lawsuit against the same opposing party.

If you’ve suffered any unexpected complications after taking a new drug or having a medical device implanted, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit yourself or join one of the dozens of class-action suits pending against some of the country’s largest drug and device manufacturers.

You don’t want to face medical companies, insurance agencies, or pharmaceutical companies alone.

No matter how morally correct you may be, we live in a nation of due process. Due process takes time, and time is money. The companies you are going up against are ready for individual complaints. They have lawyers on retainer and cases prepared.

In the most populous city in Idaho, do you really have time to fight a case for months or years and still make it through rush hour traffic every day to work? Joining the right class action means your finances stay in your pocket, and you get the same level of legal expertise on your side as the company you allege has done you harm.

Leverage and time are one thing— an expertise in medical malfeasance is the vital second step.

The lawyers across the table from you are specialists. Medical companies have the ability to require exclusivity from their legal teams—there are no generalists who will have to waste time finding case precedent or rehearsing new arguments. Medical law is what these attorneys do.

Fortunately, you have the opportunity for a similar level of expertise on your side with a class action suit. The attorneys that fight for you may have cut their teeth as legal help for insurance, pharmaceutical or other kinds of medical companies. The point is experience—an absolutely essential step in presenting your best case before the court.

Professional case presentation elevates your individual problem into a concern of the court.

Let’s be brutally honest for your benefit. Your individual pain affects you more than anyone else in the courtroom. The court is not built on emotion, and officers of the court will be swayed by evidence and organization, not by instinct, feeling, or intuition.

Professional attorneys within the structure of a class action lawsuit will be able to properly frame your injuries. The right case organization means that your pain is matched specifically to laws that protect you from that pain. This type of organization takes time, even for a team. It is virtually impossible for an individual. Thus, a class action suit gives you more leverage when it comes to professionalism as well as pure content.

CLASS ACTION SUITS

It’s imperative to get expert legal advice before committing to a class action lawsuit. An attorney can determine if your case meets the requirements and will help with the necessary paperwork.

 

With combined evidence and effort, a class action can give you the legal power to fight the manufacturer responsible for your injury. However, a lawyer may advise you to opt out of a class action suit, in order to win you fair compensation.
