The use of defective medical devices such as faulty prostheses or unsafe medication may cause personal injury (or death). Many of those devices have not been manufactured in the Netherlands. Beer advocaten works together with law firms abroad, if necessary.
We have represented hundreds of patients in the high-profile Björk Shiley affair. We have also advised a large number of women who had received harmful silicone breast implants. In these cases Beer advocaten acted for the Dutch Consumers’ Association.
Our many years of experience, accessible international network and close cooperation with medical advisors make our lawyers the best choice to handle these types of complex cases.
Beer advocaten represented (the surviving relatives of) the over 100 victims of the painkiller Vioxx. A settlement was reached with the American manufacturer and its Dutch subsidiary.
