The US Drug Watchdog knows the impact of defective pharmaceutical products, or medical devices is not just limited to the United States. Defective pharmaceutical products, and or defective medical devices are a global problem, that affect millions of people around the world. The US Drug Watchdog is attempting to build an international team of the highest caliber personal injury law firms with the goal being-more people get help, and compensation. The US Drug Watchdog at this point is not a law firm, it is an advocacy initiative group, and consulting service focused on making things right for victims of defective pharmaceuticals, and medical devices in the United States. However, because defective pharmaceuticals, or medical devices are not just limited to the United States, the group now intends to expand their services to law firms in countries, that have meaningful consumer protection laws for victims of defective pharmaceutical products, and or medical devices. The US Drug Watchdog is urging law firms in any country to contact them if they have an interest in a more global, or regional approach to assisting victims in their country, who have been harmed, or injured by a defective pharmaceutical product, or medical device. For more information interested law firms in any country are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The primary countries of interest to the US Drug Watchdog's International Initiative include Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Mexico. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says, "In the United States frequently larger defective pharmaceutical, or medical device lawsuits get put into what is called a Multi District Litigation, or MDL. While MDL's might be an efficient way to handle thousands of cases, they frequently fail to identify many of the victims. Aside from our new international initiative, we are trying to figure out a more efficient way to get the word out about a defective pharmaceutical product, or a medical device for US MDL's. In this instance we think the efficient smart way to do this is build a team of actual trial attorneys in each state, that have intake, and case management capabilities, and then develop a public relations plan specific to each state, with the goal being-get the word out to victims in that specific state." The group says, "Most European, Asian, or personal injury attorneys from around the world might be surprised to learn many US victims of a defective pharmaceutical product might not be willing to call a Texas attorney, because they live in New York, or call a California personal injury attorney if they see a cable TV ad about a defective medical device in Ohio. In many ways the US is like 50 different countries-but we are working on it-the goal being more victims get identified, and compensated." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
