Defective Drugs & Devices

Each year thousands of unsuspecting people are injured by defective drugs and/or medical devices. In order to prevent these defective products from reaching the public, certain protocols and regulations have been established and placed on the manufacturers by the FDA. When a company fails to properly investigate their product and/or fails to report any problems or side effects, they put the public’s health in jeopardy. Injuries sustained from using defective prescription drugs or medical devices can not only cause tremendous pain but also financial hardship.

 

Our team has extensive experience in identifying and vigorously pursuing claims for all of our clients who have been affected by defective pharmaceutical drugs or medical device products.
