BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Cory Watson Attorneys founding Principal Ernest Cory will address attorneys from across the nation at the annual Mass Torts Made Perfect conference on April 21, 2016.
More than 800 plaintiff attorneys are expected to attend the Las Vegas forum focused on mass torts and multidistrict litigation concerning prescription drugs and defective medical devices linked to patient injuries and deaths.
Cory serves as a panelist in a session on the drug Abilify, which is prescribed to treat mental illnesses including depression, bipolar disorder, Tourette syndrome, and schizophrenia. Scientific studies have linked Abilify to potentially devastating side effects including compulsive gambling, hypersexuality, compulsive spending, and overeating.
The Cory Watson Attorneys litigation team represents Abilify patients from across the U.S. Plaintiffs contend Abilify maker Bristol-Myers Squibb failed to warn Abilify users of the link between the drug and the increased risk of developing compulsive behaviors.
