Despite his many years of favorable verdicts and settlements on individual injury and accident claims (car, trucking and motorcycle accidents, premises liability, dog bites, etc.), Jones has made a conscious shift these past two years to scale down those cases in favor of mass torts involving dangerous pharmaceuticals, medical devices liability and Mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer. He transferred those smaller cases to his associates and another law firm. Now, he frequently travels across the U.S. attending conferences and representing clients nationwide in Mesothelioma, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and other dangerous drug cases. Jones enjoyed going against companies for manufacturing harmful drugs....

Stevens Johnson Syndrome connected to Dilantin and Zithromax

Most medications provide those who properly follow prescription directions with an opportunity to stave off an illness, combat cancer or reduce the risk of heart disease. However, there are times when these same drugs can lead to injuries - even when the patient meticulously follows prescription directions. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to Brianna Maya when she was only three years old. The young girl was given alternating doses of Children's Motrin and Children's Tylenol as instructed by her pediatrician. A few days later she developed a rash and blisters. Brianna was experiencing a rare but serious reaction to medication known as...

Today, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, about three-quarters of prescriptions filled in the U.S. are generic versions. The upside is that consumers are able to purchase generic prescription drugs for pennies of the price of the brand name version. The downside is, according to a new U.S. Supreme Court ruling, makers of generic drugs can't be sued in court by patients for adverse effects they experienced from taking the drugs. The case leading up to...
