Drug & Medical Device Injury Lawyers

Were You Harmed by a Dangerous Pharmaceutical or Defective Medical Device?

Every year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves hundreds of new medical devices and pharmaceuticals. The FDA is tasked with testing and approving these products only if they are safe and effective to perform as intended. Sadly, a focus on profits over people has resulted in lax testing, hidden trial results, and countless consumer injuries. Cases involving defective medical devices and drugs are complex and they are expensive to handle properly. They also involve not only the element of federal safety and FDA procedures, but state laws as well. Therefore, it is crucial that you retain an attorney experienced in this area.

Our Notable Cases

Our drug injury attorneys have handled numerous cases of dangerous pharmaceuticals on behalf of plaintiffs. For example:

  • Lawyers in our firm successfully represented thousands of Fen-Phen users who had suffered heart injuries as a result of their ingestion of the anti-obesity medication.
  • Attorney Camp Bailey also served as National Co-Lead Counsel for tens of thousands of plaintiffs in federal multidistrict litigation over the powerful antipsychotic drug Seroquel, a medication prescribed to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression.
  • Attorney Rob Cowan has pursued lawsuits and achieved verdicts and settlements against major drug companies in consumer protection cases for over 10 years.

How Do Defective Drug & Medical Devices Reach the Market?

Before a new drug or medical device reaches consumers, it must undergo rigorous testing by the manufacturer. The results of these tests must then be submitted to the FDA to be reviewed by an internal team of doctors, pharmacologists, chemists, etc., to ensure that the drug or device works as intended with minimal dangers or side-effects. Only when the FDA approves a new drug or device can it be obtained by consumers, either over-the-counter or through their doctor.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for manufacturers or the FDA to forsee all possible side-effects, and the danger of a drug or device is often not known until it becomes widely used over a long period of time. Once the danger has been discovered it must first be linked to the drug or device in question and reported to the FDA or manufacturer in order to get it recalled. This process can take months or years, and by then hundreds of patients may have suffered the harmful effects.

    How Do I Know If I Have a Dangerous Drug or Medical Device Case?

    Ultimate responsibility for a dangerous drug or medical devices falls on the manufacturer, and FDA approval does not waive them of liability. A manufacturer can be held liable for manufacturing defects, defective design, failure to warn about harmful side-effects, or falsely marketing the product.
