About Wagstaff Law Firm
Wagstaff Law Firm is a National Personal Injury/Mass Tort law firm that specializes in helping those who have been injured by defective and dangerous products as well as defective medications. Depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer or distributor of the product can be held accountable for the defect that resulted in injury. Similarly, prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications can do a lot of good; they can also cause serious injuries. Even FDA-approved drugs have been known to cause dangerous side effects, leading to mass recalls.
Throughout the history of the free market, there have been cases of defective products, dangerous drugs, and manufacturing defects that have led to the unfortunate injury to or death of many people. Unfortunately, it can be incredibly difficult for one plaintiff to fight the legal counsel wielded by large corporations and entities due to the enormous amounts of money and resources available to them. In our increasingly interconnected society, we can easily share stories of being injured by a defective product and can mount group litigation against these negligent corporations. When many plaintiffs face repercussions and injuries due to the same defective product or act of negligence, it is most likely in their best interest to take part in mass tort litigation to increase their legal power and ability to fight monstrously large corporations and businesses. Mass tort lawsuits can involve thousands of individual clients who are seeking compensation for their injuries.
