Knoxville Dangerous Drug & Defective Medical Device Lawyer

Obtaining Compensation for Injuries Caused by Health Care Errors

Too often, in an effort to rush new drugs and medical devices to the market, manufacturers sacrifice safety for speed, and fail to conduct adequate testing for product dangers and side-effects. Our Knoxville product liability lawyers are qualified to go up against pharmaceutical companies and medical device makers if you were injured or further harmed by a dangerous drug or defective medical device while receiving treatment for another condition. Contact our experienced Knoxville dangerous drug & defective medical device lawyers today for more information.

Simply because a drug or medical device has FDA approval does not mean the manufacturer is shielded from liability for injuries and deaths caused by the product. Often, manufacturers are aware of dangers associated with their products before the drug or medical device is placed on the market, and in certain cases, manufacturers have even provided misleading data or withheld negative data in order to obtain FDA approval. There have also been instances where a manufacturer claimed a product could be used in situations other than those it was approved for.
