Thompson Coe defends producers of pharmaceuticals and medical device manufacturers in products liability litigation throughout the country. Among our clients are a major pharmaceutical company involved in statewide litigation over its fen/phen product, and a maker of vitamin supplements that has faced a decade-long class action involving more than 300 claimants in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
We have also defended makers of a cough and cold remedy Phenylopropanolamine (PPA) in multi-district litigation. We have defended claims against suppliers of supplemental oxygen devices such as oxygen concentrators and Bi-level Positive Air Pressure (BiPAP) machines.
In defending these types of cases, our lawyers regularly retain and work with medical experts from various fields, including neurologists, pulmonologists, pathologists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, internist, sleep medicine physicians, obstetricians/gynecologists, critical care specialists, epidemiologists, and other treating physicians and medical care providers. In addition to knowledge of the medical issues involved, we bring to each of our cases a combination of trial and negotiating skills, case management sophistication, solid technical knowledge and innovative defense strategies.
