American history is tragically overrun with toxic exposures that have resulted in staggering numbers of injuries and deaths. From asbestos to oil spills, from air pollution to tobacco, most people have been exposed to some form of toxin in their life. At Holland Groves Schneller & Stolze, we have been involved in representing the victims of toxic exposures and proving the vital causal link between a variety of substances and diseases. The firm has represented workers, residents, consumers, villages, water districts, townships and others in these highly complex matters, taking on the corporate giants of the petroleum, transportation, insulation and pharmaceutical industries.
PHARMACEUTICAL/DANGEROUS PRESCRIPTION DRUGS: The firm represents people who are injured or killed by unsafe or mislabeled drugs, serving important leadership roles in nationwide litigation holding drug companies responsible for their products. Presently, Eric Holland and Steve Stolze are taking an active role and serving on the Science Committee for the Yaz/Yasmin MDL litigation. We are currently handling pharmaceutical cases involving Avandia, Fentanyl, Zoloft/Paxil (SSRIs), Metal-on Metal Hip Replacements, InFuse Bone Grafts, Transvaginal Mesh and Mirena IUDs, and are investigating a number of other potentially unsafe drugs. It is important to note that there are many complexities arising in drug cases including those presented by injureis caused by generic drugs. The United States Supreme Court in the Pliva case limited many such cases. However, more recent cases have allowed cases like this to proceed, including a recent Alabama Supreme Court case.
