Drugs & Medical Device Defect Attorneys
Each year, defective and dangerous drugs and medical devices cause thousands of injuries and deaths in the United States. Often, pharmaceutical manufacturing giants recall their products from the market long after they have become aware of their potential for injury. As a result, thousands of people each year suffer personal and catastrophic injury, undergo multiple corrective surgeries, and even lose their lives.

When Manufacturers Knowingly Put the Public at Risk
Too often, in their efforts to rush new drugs onto the market, manufacturers ignore safe practices and fail to conduct adequate testing that could have revealed the dangers of their products. In certain cases, drug manufacturers and medical device makers are aware of dangers associated with their products before ever placing them on the market. Approval of a product by the FDA does not immunize the manufacturer from liability, and deaths and injuries can occur even when the drugs have been used according to the manufacturers’ warnings and instructions.
Some are the result of defective warnings and labels, which fail to adequately warn of drug interactions, adverse reactions and serious side effects; fail to provide instructions for safe use; or do not provide information regarding contraindications or preexisting conditions which increases the risk of injury. Others are caused by drugs that are recalled or withdrawn from the market, which were never safe to begin with, and which would not have been approved but for the manufacturer misleading or withholding material data from the FDA.
