Looking for representation? Have questions? Our experience, expertise, and resources make Hollis Law the ideal partner.
The Hollis Law Firm is located in Overland Park, Kansas, and often partners with other firms to represent clients nationwide. We handle cases for people who have been injured by harmful prescription drugs and medical devices. Our firm stays up to date on the latest scientific literature regarding each case type and other potentially harmful drugs and devices currently on the market. As a result of representing thousands of victims throughout the country, The Hollis Law Firm is at times able to detect patterns of certain products causing specific injuries before any scientific studies are published.
We understand the legal system can be confusing. Our goal is to make the process as easy for you as we can and answer any questions that may arise throughout the litigation. All of our work is done on a “contingency fee” basis, which means we get paid for winning cases. We believe this is an ideal situation for both parties as you will not have any out-of-pocket costs. We will not accept your case unless there is a realistic opportunity for recovery. Since we do not get paid if we do not win your case, we have no incentive to waste your time or ours. On average, dangerous drug and device claims can take around three to five years to reach fruition.
- Multidistrict Litigations: Because court decisions have restricted the use of class actions in the drug and medical device area, your case will likely not be part of a class action lawsuit. Your claim may be pursued alongside many similar claims as part of a mass tort, but the facts of your case and your injuries will be evaluated on an individual basis. Because dangerous drug and defective product lawsuits often involve a large number of cases with common issues, your case may likely be transferred to a single court district as part of a multidistrict litigation. MDL works well for cases in which one or more common issues are seen. For example, while one hundred people may have taken a certain drug and suffered injuries, the details of their timelines and injuries may vary.
- The federal court system utilizes multidistrict litigations (MDL) to better manage cases involving issues affecting a large number of people, including dangerous drugs and defective products. These civil cases are consolidated into one district court which handles the discovery and pretrial proceedings for each case involved. Congress’ goal for creating the MDL system was to offer efficiency through better coordination of complex litigations filed in various districts throughout the country. By consolidating cases with common issues into one district, those involved save time and money in the overall process. Because the facts of each case vary, there is no definitive determination as to how each litigation will progress. While we will work towards the best outcome possible for your case, there is no guarantee of future results.
