Gabriel Zambrano is a long time resident of South Florida who has practiced law throughout the State of Florida since 1994. He began his career handling commercial litigation and insurance defense cases which allowed him to develop skills in handling cases throughout the entire process from an early claim through trial.
His trial experience includes handling complex and catastrophic injury cases, as well as multiple trials that approached or exceeded thirty days at trial. In 2011, he was invited to serve as co-counsel in an Engle Tobacco trial that resulted in one of the largest reported verdicts in 2011.
Today, he advocates on behalf of victims of personal injuries, assists individuals seeking justice, develops mass tort projects where patients suffer injuries from drugs or pharmaceutical devices, as well as handling ongoing cases in already existing mass tort proceedings.
Mr. Zambrano gained national prominence, in 2009, as an early advocate on behalf of girls and women that suffered life altering blood clots, strokes or heart damage from use of the Blockbuster drug Drospirenone (DRSP) containing birth control pills trademarked and manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals: Yasmin, YAZ, Beyaz & Safyral.
He is considered, and has remained, a Key Opinion Leader on the litigation and served as Lead Counsel or Co-Counsel for several women among the first 100 YAZ lawsuits filed in the ongoing Multi-District Litigation (MDL) and coordinated State Mass Tort Proceedings.
The YAZ litigation is actively ongoing with published reports of nearly 12,000 lawsuits pending as of April 2012. Bloomberg/Reuters has estimated in published reports that the girls and women, who have been injured from use of a DROSPIRENONE (DRSP) containing birth control pill, will collectively be awarded nearly $2.65 billion U.S. dollars.
In October 2010, he warned of the risks facing another Generation of Girls & Women from BAYER’S MIRENA IUD in an October 2010 presentation at a national mass tort conference. As such, he has been involved at the forefront of recent contraceptive litigation as described above, as well as in the emergence of cases against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals over their hormone releasing MIRENA IUD.
Gabe Zambrano is a regular commentator and Blogger, on LinkedIn, on subjects relating to evolving Mass Tort litigation, consumer safety, investigations of pharmaceutical and medical devices, commercial motor vehicles or trucking, as well as other pending litigation.
