Dangerous Drugs & Devices

Every year, thousands of people suffer from serious, even fatal, side effects of some pharmaceuticals—medication they believed to be safe. Still more are injured by dangerous or defective drugs and medical devices.

The expectation of safety is not unfounded: these drugs and devices have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They are prescribed by doctors people know and trust. Unfortunately, many are inadequately tested or have insufficient warnings on their labels, leaving doctors and patients in the dark.

Let us guide you through your prescription drug lawsuit process.

Filing a Lawsuit

If you have been injured by defective drugs or medical devices, you have the right to compensation. Our ConsumerSafety.Law legal advocates, including experienced pharmaceutical lawyers, can handle your case and help you navigate the complicated world of pharmaceutical litigation. Below is a list of current drug and medical device investigations:

Determining Liability

A pharmaceutical company or medical device manufacturer can be held accountable for injuries under the legal theory of product liability. In this field, two main arguments are used: design defect and inadequate instructions or warnings.

A company can only be held liable for design defect if the FDA and the health care providers find the drug or device’s known risks (or risks that reasonably should have been known) outweigh its potential benefits.

Manufacturers are liable for inadequate warnings if the medical providers are not warned or if manufacturers fail to notify consumers of known or foreseeable risks involved with taking the drug.
