Tampa Lawyers Assist Victims of Defective Drugs and Medical Devices

Tenacious Florida litigators hold negligent manufacturers accountable

When drugs or medical devices don’t work as they should, significant harm can occur to someone who is already physically vulnerable. At Frank Charles Miranda, P.A. in Tampa, we have 30 years of combined experience winning positive outcomes in court and through negotiations. Whether the negligence in your case occurred during the design, manufacture or labeling of the particular product, we press your claim and retain experts to support your allegations. Our firm has a strong track record, longstanding ties to the community, and a determination to secure justice for Floridians who have suffered needlessly.

Strong advocates bring legal action when Xarelto leads to internal bleeding

Individuals who were prescribed Xarelto as a blood thinner face risks that might be greater than the clots the drug was designed to prevent. Internal bleeding triggered by this medication has led to severe physical problems and even death. Our firm has successfully litigated these issues and can advise you on the legal aspects of such matters as:

  • Adverse side effects — Uncontrollable bleeding, spinal injuries, strokes, heart attacks and other medical problems have been reported by people taking Xarelto. If you were diagnosed with a medical condition after taking this drug, we can help determine if a connection exists.
  • Consideration of other medications — Warfarin is a drug that has performed the same blood-thinning function as Xarelto for decades but without as many dangerous side effects. Our firm will review whether safer options were available when you were prescribed Xarelto.
  • Complications caused by internal bleeding — Internal bleeding causes weakness, damage to nearby organs and, in some instances, premature death. Throughout Florida, we seek a fair resolution for victims of these and other prescription drug–related maladies.

Our firm reviews each situation thoroughly and takes action on behalf of patients (and their families) victimized by Xarelto.

Aggressive attorneys seek relief for clients’ hernia mesh failures

The use of mesh in hernia repair surgery is not new, but certain types of surgical mesh have caused serious side effects such as pain, infections and bowel obstructions. In some instances, the support fails entirely due to a tear or some other problem, necessitating additional surgery. We can review your situation and determine if a dangerous substance such as polypropylene (once used to make mesh) might be causing your symptoms. From there, we take prompt action against the manufacturer responsible for your condition.

Litigators handle cancer cases related to Johnson & Johnson talcum powder

Johnson’s Baby Powder has been trusted by American families for generations. Unfortunately, the product’s main ingredient, talc — a mineral made up of magnesium, silicon, oxygen and hydrogen — has been linked to ovarian cancer since the early 1970s. But Johnson & Johnson and federal regulators failed to provide proper warnings to consumers about the increased cancer risk associated with the company’s baby powder and other talc-based products. Juries in most of the subsequent injury suits against Johnson & Johnson have found for plaintiffs. Our firm has the resources to present an authoritative case if a link exists between a client’s talcum powder use and their medical problems.

Experienced law firm advises on potential fetal harm caused by Zofran

Zofran is a prescription drug designed to treat nausea in patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. Like other pharmaceuticals, it was often marketed for other “off-label” uses, including as treatment for pregnant women suffering morning sickness. That use, however, had terrible consequences — the medication was found to cause a range of serious problems in fetuses, including heart, kidney and skeletal deformations. GlaxoSmithKline, the drug manufacturer, might have known about this risk but did not effectively warn medical providers or the public. If you were prescribed Zofran for morning sickness and your infant suffered as a result, we will make every legal effort to obtain full payment for the harm caused by the drug.

Attorneys press claims on problems triggered by dialysis additives

While dialysis is a lifesaving treatment for patients whose kidneys no longer function, it is a treatment that can also cause serious side effects, such as strokes and heart attacks. To reduce their incidence, additives such as Granuflo and NaturaLyte are introduced during dialysis treatment to help patients maintain proper pH blood levels. However, incomplete information and administration mistakes have resulted in overdosing, which contributed to dialysis patients suffering heart attacks and strokes — the very conditions these substances were supposed to prevent. If you or a loved one has suffered adverse effects from hemodialysis, we conduct a thorough investigation to find where the problem occurred and pursue compensation for victims.
