Women and men share many common health problems but women also have their own health issues which deserve special consideration. At Audet & Partners LLP, we recognize women's health concerns relating to defective pharmaceuticals and medical devices should be viewed distinctive from men. To that end we have created a site devoted specifically to women's health law issues. In doing so, we hope women are able to find the answers they are looking for on the medical devices and pharmaceuticals that are of direct concern to them.
The commitment of Audet and Partners, LLP to legal issues affecting women has included sponsorship of events such as the 39th Anniversary Luncheon of Equal Rights Advocates held on Thursday, June 13 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel.
Below are a few of the cases we are currently litigating on behalf of women allegedly injured as a result of dangerous pharmaceuticals and/or medical devices:
