Kirtland & Packard, LLP Takes Important Roles in Defective Drug Cases, Including Zoloft and Benicar

Redondo Beach, CA Attorneys serving Torrance and the South Bay Area

Kirtland & Packard, LLP has long been one of the nation's leaders in defective drug litigation. We are recognized for the quality of our work representing innocent victims of neglect and misconduct from the pharmaceutical industry.

This work continues, as our firm has recently earned prominent roles in several cases involving dangerous drugs and medical devices. These roles include:

  • Appointed Liaison Counsel in Zoloft California JCCP Litigation
  • Appointed to Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in Benicar MDL Litigation
  • Filed California JCCP Petition for Xarelto cases
  • Filed California JCCP Petition for Pradaxa cases

"JCCP" refers to "Judicial Council Coordinated Proceedings." Under California law, multiple civil cases can be combined and coordinated if they are complex cases that present shared questions of law and fact. This requires filing a coordination petition with the state's Judicial Council. This is a common approach in defective drug cases, as they often involve multiple victims who suffered similar illnesses and injuries.

Many of the drug cases listed above have been percolating for years, and thousands of people in California and across the country have been victimized by these defective products. We urge you to speak with us as soon as possible if you've used these drugs and suffered serious harms.

If you want to speak with our firm about health issues associated with Zoloft, Benicar, Xarelto, Pradaxa or any other defective drug or medical device, please call Kirtland & Packard, LLP today at 310-536-1000 for a free consultation.
