Posted by Larry Bodine | Sep 03, 2017 | 0 Comments

The most recent webinar in the LawLytics Mass Torts Marketing series is available to view for free on-demand.

Taxotere, a chemotherapy drug, has been linked to permanent hair loss in patients treated with it. Created last October, this multi-district litigation docket (MDL) is fast-growing with about 1,500 cases filed.  While hair loss is a common side effect related to chemotherapy drugs, total permanent hair loss (alopecia) is not.

Find out if a Taxotere practice makes sense for your firm. You can watch this 30-minute webinar on-demand.

Taxotere: It's a good time for attorneys to get involved

The way that MDLs work is that the court, as it's done in this litigation, creates fill-in-the-blanks forms. There's an amended master long form complaint available online that attorneys can use to draft their complaints. There's also a plaintiff fact sheet and an exemplar short form complaint. All of the documents an attorney would need are already online.

With multi-district litigation dockets, an attorney can be anywhere in the United States and can represent a client represented anywhere else in the US.

The procedure is basically to enter an appearance and let the plaintiff's steering committee do most of the work. The place that attorneys should really focus their efforts is on getting new clients. It's still very early in the litigation, and the cost to acquire clients is very low.
