Many drugs and medical devices are lauded as life-saving when they first hit the market after receiving fda approval. But for the hundreds of thousands of americans who are injured or even killed each year as a direct result of dangerous drugs and medical devices, these innovations can be anything but.
Were you or someone you care about injured after taking a bad drug or using a defective medical device? Perhaps the drug company claimed that their product would help you, and you believed them.
Now you’re hurt, in pain, injured, or worse because of a bad drug or a medical device that was rushed to the Boise market without the proper testing needed to ensure that it was safe. When you are hurt or injured due to a bad drug or medical device, you are suffering a great physical and emotional strain.

CURRENT DRUG AND MEDICAL DEVICE LITIGATION
- Power Morcellators
- Pelvic Mesh
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.
These may not be the only ongoing litigations at this time.
TYPES OF DRUG & MEDICAL DEVICE INJURIES
Excess Scar Tissue.
The creation of excess scar tissue around the implanted device, causing internal adhesions or even organ damage.

DO YOU HAVE A MEDICAL DEVICE OR BAD DRUG CASE?
By initiating a lawsuit, you may be able to receive damages that can pay for your lost wages, medical care, and physical and emotional suffering.
It is not uncommon for medical bills to exceed the limits of your insurance policy. If this happens, you may receive threatening phone calls or letters demanding that you pay your medical bills. This can strain your finances, and you may be wondering whether you should file for bankruptcy to put the matter behind you.
Rest assured, you may have a strong chance for a medical malpractice claim that could end your financial woes. Stop wondering and find out today with one quick phone call. Our personal injury attorneys will let you know if you have a credible claim and we will take action to end the creditors’ phone calls.
By taking decisive action against the device maker or pharmaceutical company who issued the drugs, you can protect other Idahoans from getting harmed.
Companies are not likely to remove a dangerous device or bad drug from the market on their own, even with pressure from a single consumer. By initiating a lawsuit, you may be able to play an important role in protecting public safety while also getting the financial damages you deserve.
In some cases, you may be offered a sum of money to settle the case.
This is likely to happen when a company knows something was wrong, but does not want to publicly admit that they issued a bad drug.
Before you accept their offer, give the attorneys at Litster Frost the opportunity to get you a better deal. We are so sure our negotiators can get more money back in your pocket, that you pay nothing if we do not deliver.
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?
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.
If the slip-and-fall happened inside of a rented business, you would likely recover directly from the business.
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.
