With enormous pride, Shaheen & Gordon announces that the First Circuit Court of appeals affirmed the largest jury verdict in NH history – 21.6 Million!!! Our firm represented Karen Bartlett in a federal law suit alleging design defect and product liability claims against Mutual Pharmaceutical, a drug company that manufactured a pain killer known as Sulindac. Ms. Bartlett was prescribed the drug for shoulder pain, but it caused Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis, resulting in burning of 65% of her body surface, permanent near blindness, esophageal burns, lung damage and permanent disfigurement. Our personal injury attorneys won a jury verdict in September 2010, the pharmaceutical company appealed and, this week, the appeal court confirmed the victory. This result demonstrates both the importance of winning a case at trial and preserving that victory on appeal – a credit to our New Hampshire personal injury attorneys. Congratulations to injury attorney Christine Craig and our entire team of personal injury and product liability lawyers for this victory.
