Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Injury Litigation
Drugs and medical devices are developing rapidly to treat a variety of needs and diseases. Unfortunately, not all drugs and devices are created equal and many can lead to harmful side effects. Despite the many regulations seeking to protect the public from defective and dangerous drugs and medical devices, many of these products slip through the cracks and lead to complications and side effects that can prove lethal for some patients.
Many of the products that are on the market contain inadequate warnings or improper labeling. These drugs and devices can harm patients in ways that the patient is unaware of when consenting to take the medication or have the device implanted. When a pharmaceutical company fails to properly warn its potential users of the dangers of its product, it leads to larger profits for them and harmful, potentially life threatening side effects for the patient. If you have been harmed by a defective drug or medical device, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer.
