Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman has been handling drug injury cases since the late 1980s.
Among the thousands of clients Baum Hedlund has represented in drug injury cases and drug wrongful death cases, the firm has represented the widow of 1960’s rock star Del Shannon and the family of comedian Phil Hartman in their antidepressant-related death cases.
The drug product liability lawyers at Baum Hedlund have seen the harm caused by these drugs and the lives destroyed and therefore, have gone above and beyond just lawyering in our drug injury cases to increase awareness of the drugs’ risks. Baum Hedlund lawyers have traveled to Washington, D.C. on numerous occasions, met with members of Congress, the FDA, and Department of Health and Human Services officials. They have also assisted Congressional Investigators in their investigations of drug safety issues and FDA failures.
Baum Hedlund has testified four times before the government regarding the increased risk of suicidality in children, adolescents and adults of all ages. Several of our clients also testified at the FDA’s Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee hearings held in 2004 and 2006 regarding antidepressant-induced suicide. Watch their testimony here.
During our February 2004 testimony before the Food and Drug Administration’s Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee, our attorney said, “Put me out of business for the right reasons — warn about these drugs.” Senior partner, Michael Baum, has testified before the Taiwanese government after being called there to share his knowledge about contaminated hemophilia medication exported to foreign countries by U.S. manufacturers.
Baum Hedlund lawyers fight vigorously for the rights of their clients in their drug injury cases.
