Dangerous and Defective Products Liability Cases

Products liability or Mass Tort litigation may arise when a manufacturer or retailer makes and/or sells a defective drug, medical device or other consumer product, and these defective products harm people.

Squitieri & Fearon  has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of  victims who have suffered personal injuries as a result of dangerous and defective products.  We successfully represented clients who were injured when they received defective hip implants, which had a coating of oil on them, preventing the implant from properly bonding with the bone and often requiring additional surgery to replace the defective implant. We sued the manufacturer and recovered millions of dollars for our clients. We also have successfully represented people who had strokes after ingesting a dangerous cough medicine that caused strokes and a diabetes medication that caused liver injury. Because of our experience handling these types of complicated cases, the courts overseeing hundreds of those cases have appointed us to leadership roles. For example, our firm was appointed by the court as liaison counsel for plaintiffs in the consolidated mass tort pharmaceutical cases of In Re: New York Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) Products Liability Litigation, Master Index No. 761,000/03 (Supreme Court, New York County) and In Re: New York Rezulin Products Liability Litigation, Master Index Number 752,000/00 (Supreme Court, New York County).
