Mass Torts

Class Actions

When defective medical devices or pharmaceutical drugs cause harm to large groups of people, the Tampa injury lawyers at John Bales Attorneys pursue legal claims—or mass torts—to help victims get compensation for their suffering.

We want to alert people like you about these potentially harmful drugs and defective products through consumer alerts. We believe that consumer alerts give power back to the people instead of the corporations that make unsafe products.

Philips CPAP Recall
Certain Philips Respironics CPAP, BiPAP and Ventilator Machines Recalled.

Current evidence suggests that the foam may break down, with particulates potentially entering the airway where they could be ingested or inhaled by the user. Potential risks associated with use may include an increased risk of developing breast cancer, leukemia, lung cancer, liver cancer, kidney cancer, pancreatic and other deadly cancers. Learn more >
