Defective Drugs and Devices
Class action lawsuits are brought against large corporations when a group of individuals, potentially thousands, have been harmed by their practices or their products. In a class action, an individual or a group of individuals will file a suit on behalf of all victims. This allows people that would not usually have the means to do so go up against wealthy corporations and hold them accountable for their wrongful actions.
Class action lawsuits show that there is strength in numbers. When a group of people have suffered harm from a product on the market, like a dangerous drug, defective products, or other dangerous manufactured items, the case can be filed with all individuals who have suffered similar harm. In class action lawsuits, having the support of our team of lawyers who are familiar with the process, filings, and management of a class action can be of great benefit to you.

A drug recall happens when a prescription or over-the-counter medicine is removed from the market because it is found to have the potential to harm consumers or because it is defective. In some cases, the makers of the drug will discover a problem and voluntarily recall it. Other times, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will remove the product from the market. Drug recalls used as an effective approach to limit the number of victims harmed by dangerous products. However, for those who have already suffered injuries or illnesses from recalled drugs, they now have the opportunity to take legal action and file personal injury claims against pharmaceutical companies. If you have taken a recalled drug or suffered an injury or illness as a result of taking a drug that was later recalled, our Florida Defective Drugs and Devices Lawyers at Whittel & Melton will fight for your right to just compensation.Medical Device Recalls and Defects
Medical device manufacturers are responsible for patient injuries and deaths caused by their products. If you suffered harm directly linked to a medical device, we can pursue a claim for you individually or help you link up to established class action.
Our Class Action Attorneys at Whittel & Melton have filed numerous lawsuits against manufacturers of defective products. As more medical devices are placed on the market, faulty devices will continue to arise and place consumers at risk. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury related to a recalled medical device, we want to discuss the case with you and develop a plan of action to effectively represent your interests.Defective Products
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, estimates that almost 30 million people are injured as a result of dangerous products every year. When product manufacturers and designers place unsafe products on the market, the general public can suffer serious harm. In some cases, manufacturing defects and design flaws were known by the product manufacturers, yet they hid this knowledge in order to maximize profits. If you were harmed by a defective product, you could have the grounds for a defective product class action lawsuit.Vehicle Defects and Recalls
Millions of Americans rely on their vehicles to get them to and from their daily destinations safely. Sadly, some vehicles on the road are equipped with serious defects before they even leave the factory. These defects can cause serious accidents and result in personal injuries or deaths. Once manufacturers discover any defects, they should issue vehicle recalls. Those who have been injured in accidents due to defective vehicles can file vehicle recall lawsuits.
Most vehicle recall and defects involve issues with the following:
- Steering components
- Airbag deployment systems
- Ignition switches
- Seat belts
- Electrical systems
- Tires and wheels
