drug and defective product Cases

Laird Baker & Blackstock is Evaluating Cases Involving Serious Injury, Disease, or Death Caused by the Following:

Invokana– a new type of drug used to treat diabetes.  New studies show that this drug may be linked to a dangerous and potentially fatal kidney failure.  It has also been linked to foot and/or leg amputation as well as lowered bone density.

Hernia and Vaginal Mesh – Much of the mesh used to repair hernias and used in vaginal surgeries can break, migrate, form scar tissue, puncture organs, and cause much pain and suffering, leading to multiple surgeries.

Open Heart, Lung, or Liver Surgery - If you underwent open heart surgery, lung surgery, or liver surgery in the past several years, you could have been infected with a micro-bacteria that can lie dormant for over 5 years.  This bacteria comes from the use of a particular machine during surgery that is used to regulate body temperature called the Stockert 3T machine.  You may receive a letter about this from your hospital where the surgery was conducted.  If so, we would like to offer you a free consultation.  You may have a serious claim.  There is no fee if there is no recovery.

Hip Replacements - If you have an artificial hip and have had a revision surgery, or your doctor has recommended a revision surgery, we would like to talk to you.  Many of the metal on metal artificial hips have been found to be defective and you may be entitled to a significant amount for damages.  We have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for clients in these cases. There is no charge for a consultation.  No recovery, no fee.


Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer – Four large verdicts have been reached by juries against Johnson and Johnson for victims of ovarian cancer.  As many as 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year may have been caused by regular use of talcum powder in the genital area.  Talc is a mineral made up of various elements including magnesium, silicon and oxygen.

Monsanto Roundup - If you are a farmer or landscaper and have used Monsanto Roundup extensively, and you have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, we are evaluating cases.  There is no charge for the evaluation and consultation and all such cases are handled on a contingency fee basis.  No recovery, no fee.

We are currently evaluating these cases for potential claims.  We evaluate all cases involving the above on a contingency fee basis.  If we do not recover, you do not owe anything.  Call our office or click the link below to schedule a free consultation.
