Drug & Medical Device Injury Lawyers
Matthews & Associates Law Firm works nationwide and in Puerto Rico for people injured by dangerous drugs and medical devices. Our lawyers, paralegals, researchers and investigators hire experts, order medical records, take depositions and face Big Pharma and other corporate giants in courtrooms across the country.
Contingency Fees & Free Legal Consultation
We get paid only if we win a client’s case in court or settle it. Our clients pay no attorney’s fees unless they recover. Court costs, legal expenses and medical bills are paid from a client’s share of the recovery. If there is no recovery, clients are not responsible for any court costs or legal expenses, except for unpaid medical bills. We offer a free legal consultation.
Personal Injury Law Firm
Matthews & Associates has not always focused primarily on dangerous drugs and devices. Lawyers from our firm have also handled truck and auto accidents, petrochemical explosions, construction accidents, birth injury, premises liability, product liability, electrocutions, nursing home abuse, abuse by clergy, and more. The firm won a jury verdict in a rape and kidnapping case in Houston (later settled for a confidential sum) against the largest shopping mall in Texas and one of the country’s largest security companies. Mother Jones covered the story of a defective baby cradle case Mr. Matthews handled for a mother – “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle.” More recent successes include 2014 verdicts in transvaginal mesh cases in Texas’ 95th Judicial District Court; a fracking case in Texas in the County Court at Law #5 in Dallas County; and a birth defects case in Philadelphia: Anderson v Janssen Pharmaceuticals in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County First Judicial District.
Individual Cases, Individual Attention
In pharmaceutical drug litigation, people often have vastly different injuries and circumstances; therefore they need their cases handled on an individual basis. At Matthews & Associates, we may sometimes file cases in a group; but we virtually always prosecute them on an individual case-by-case basis.
