When the lawsuits start rolling in, this company is ready to handle the volume it states. When the lawsuits begin, they anticipate a large number of requests to roll in, thus they have increased the number of employees, must be news and big time business as the took the time to create a press release. Which lawsuit, this one: Wyeth v. Levine. This somewhat set the stage for consumers to be able to sue a pharmaceutical or medical device company in court. BD
The U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling on "pre-emption" permits consumers and patients to pursue legal action against product manufacturers, if warranted, despite "clearance to market" issued by the FDA on said products. This legal decision opens the door to thousands of cases which have sat dormant, awaiting the ruling of this case. MedSave USA, a record retrieval service provider, has increased its staff to accommodate all new record requests to be received from the legal industry.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) March 19, 2009 -- MedSave USA, a leading national provider of medical record retrieval services, announced today that the company has hired nearly 100 new employees to help manage the influx of record requests expected after a recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.
"Thousand of lawsuits were pending as a result of this challenge brought by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals," noted Jeff Baker, president of MedSave USA (http://www.medsaveusa.com) . "The Court grappled with the issue of whether a product market clearance granted by the FDA pre-empted a lawsuit from being filed at the state level, since FDA clearance may be perceived as 'federal approval'," he stated. "On March 4, the Supreme Court voted against 'pre-emption', opening the doors to the torrent of lawsuits that have remained idle since the litigation on this case began," Mr. Baker observed.
