Defective Drugs and Medical Device Lawsuits Lawyer
Pharmaceutical and medical device companies have a responsibility to provide safe products designed to help patients, not cause harm. While most drugs and medical devices must pass FDA approval before they are allowed to be used for medical treatments, loopholes can allow some unsafe products to enter the marketplace. Defective drugs and medical devices can cause serious harm and injuries to patients, even death. When this occurs, the manufacturers may be held liable through medical product liability lawsuits.
FDA approval does not guarantee that a medical drug or device will be safe, only that it has passed the required testing or approval process. Drug and medical device manufacturers are still liable when their product is defective or does not appropriately warn patients of potential risk. Patients who use defective or unsafe medical products can face physical, psychological and emotional injuries or financial damages. They deserve to be compensated for their injuries by the negligent companies that create these products.
Recovering Damages for Defective Medical Products
In most cases, the only way to recover damages caused by a defective or unsafe medical product is through a lawsuit. Reporting the injuries to the FDA can alert them of the problem, but without litigation, most medical companies will continue to sell their products and other patients can be harmed. Initiating a defective medical device or drug lawsuit against the manufacturer may result in compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages for the victim. Some examples of defective drug and medical device lawsuits include:
