Products Liability

Whether you’ve suffered injuries or lost a loved one as a result of a drug (either prescription or over-the-counter), a faulty medical device, or other types of defective products, Abernethy Law can help.  Often, cases like these are complex both scientifically and in terms of the court procedures applicable to them.  Kathryn Abernethy has fifteen years of experience crawling through medical records, medical journals and FDA filings to make sense of complex scientific cases.  She also has appeared and argued before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (“JPML”) and participated in Multi-District Litigation (“MDL”) cases in the federal court system.  Whether your case is part of an MDL or can be filed and litigated to conclusion in the North Carolina court system, Kathryn has the experience to navigate the court process successfully.

Kathryn Abernethy has defended pharmaceutical companies, car manufacturers and the makers of packaged foods in products liability suits.  She knows how pharmaceutical companies, food companies and other product manufacturers litigate these cases.  Let her put her years of experience to work helping you avoid the legal and factual traps set by the big companies.
