Philadelphia Class Action Lawyers
The need for medical monitoring can arise from a number of circumstances,
including exposure to a hazardous chemical or the use of prescription
drugs later determined to be dangerous. Monitoring your medical condition
can be costly and time consuming for patients and their families. It may
involve constant blood work or MRI scans to detect dangerous conditions
before they wreak havoc on your body. When this occurs, who will pay for
these medical tests and medical monitoring?
At Golomb & Honik, P.C., our Philadelphia medical monitoring attorneys
understand the complexities surrounding consumer class action cases and
the need for injured victims to be routinely monitored for life-threatening
complications. As such, we fight aggressively to ensure that all injured
victims receive the medical monitoring they need after being exposed to
a toxic substance or dangerous drug.

What are medical monitoring lawsuits?
Medical monitoring lawsuits typically seek to recover the quantifiable
costs of periodic medical examinations or lab work that is needed to detect
a disease before symptoms have occurred. Medical monitoring lawsuits are typically
consumer class action cases that involve a number of individuals who may be at risk for future
health problems after being exposed to a toxic substance as a result of
a negligent or deliberately harmful act.
Golomb & Honik, P.C. is one of the few law firms that handles medical
monitoring cases with regularity, and our team of Philadelphia-based attorneys has successfully fought
for medical monitoring for clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and across
the United States.
The need for medical monitoring is often connected to cases involving:
Although the symptoms of some health conditions associated with exposure
to or contamination from a hazardous material are immediately evident,
the symptoms of other medical conditions may take years-even decades-to
manifest themselves. It is therefore critical that medical professionals
monitor victims of such exposure to ensure that complications can be identified
and treated as quickly as possible.
Types of Medical Monitoring Needs
The type of medical monitoring and the frequency you require this monitoring
depends largely on the type of substance you have been exposed to. Monitoring
may involve periodic blood work, physical medical exams, urine tests,
CAT scans, MRIs, or X-rays. This monitoring is essential for the early
detection of serious medical complications and diseases. While not all
victims who have been exposed to environmental toxins or defective drugs
will be harmed, medical monitoring exists to identify those who will-before
it is to late.
At Golomb & Honik, P.C., we believe that negligent pharmaceutical companies,
manufacturers, and large corporations who routinely expose the public
to toxic or harmful substances should be held responsible for the potential
injuries they have caused. As such, we fight aggressively to ensure that
medical monitoring is provided for everyone in the class action lawsuit.
