Fargo Defective Drugs & Medical Devices Lawyer
Defective Drugs & Medical Devices
When we visit a medical professional for treatment, we take it for granted that we will be treated effectively. Unfortunately, sometimes prescription medication and healthcare products are made in such a way that causes them to function incorrectly, which can lead to serious side effects, health problems, and even wrongful death.
At Solberg Stewart Miller, our Fargo defective drugs and medical devices lawyers represent those who have been affected by such products. If you or a loved one has suffered an illness, injury, or death as the result of a defective drug or medical device, we can help you receive compensation for your medical expenses as well as the closure and justice you deserve.

Defective Drug & Medical Device Cases We Take
Our firm has successfully pursued numerous defective drug and medical device cases over the years against corporations big and small. We are always investigating possible legal cases on behalf of people injured by dangerous medical products. Solberg Stewart Miller never represents manufacturers—we only represent people hurt by medical drugs and products.
Currently, we are focusing on actions against drug makers of several drugs and medical devices such as:
Zantac: In 2019, it was discovered that popular heartburn drug Zantac (generic name Ranitidine) may contain dangerous quantities of NDMA, a known carcinogen. All Zantac products were removed from shelves nationwide shortly after. Some people who have taken Zantac have been diagnosed with various cancers as a result. If you or someone you love has been given a cancer diagnosis after using Zantac, you may have a claim.
Hernia Mesh: Hernia mesh is a medical device used in surgery to repair hernias and is sometimes referred to as a hernia screen or hernia patch. We are investigating claims for injuries people have recently experienced after hernia mesh surgery. Many of these complications require a hernia repair procedure. If you or a loved one had a hernia mesh surgery that caused problems or failed please contact us to discuss the matter.
Talcum Powder: Solberg Stewart Miller is investigating possible lawsuits on behalf of people who regularly use baby powder and have now been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Talcum powder has been found to cause ovarian cancer when used for perineal hygiene. Numerous lawsuits have been filed accusing Johnson & Johnson, a major manufacturer of talc-based baby powder and body powder, of failing to warn consumers of the risks of talcum powder. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease and is expected to result in thousands of deaths this year in the United States.
Damages You Can Recover
The damages that you can recover in a bad drug or defective medical product case varies based on your specific circumstances. Compensation may be affected by the severity of your injury, the amount of treatment required, and the manufacturer that is being sued. As in most personal injury cases, you should be entitled to recover everything you have lost as a result of using the drug or device in question.
In a typical defective drug or medical device case, you should be able to receive compensation for:
All of your past and future medical expenses and ongoing treatment
Any wages you lost as a result of taking time off of work for recovery
Disability benefits if the drug or device caused a long-term or permanent impairment
Mental and physical pain and suffering
