Clinton Dangerous Drugs & Defective Medical Device Lawyer
Helping You Obtain Financial Justice for Medically Induced Injuries
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is so underfunded that many drugs do not go through rigorous-enough testing processes to ensure their safety. This is concerning particularly because the number of new drugs approved by the FDA reached a 66-year high in 2015, according to Forbes. Additionally, the magnitude of the pharmaceutical industry’s power reaches into the FDA and congress, virtually controlling many aspects of the agency and limiting congressional oversight, according to Frontline. Unfortunately, because the FDA is not equipped to stand up against pharmaceutical giants and much of the testing is performed in-house by the drug maker themselves, thousands of Americans and Clinton residents suffer the consequences of birth defects, stroke, heart attack, cancer, and many other detrimental and fatal injuries. However, there is hope for you, financially. If you or a family member was injured by a dangerous medical device or drug, contact the Clinton dangerous drug & defective medical device lawyers of Fox Willis Burnette, PLLC for financial compensation.

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.
What if the Drug is FDA-Approved?
Many times, drug makers know of the risks involved with using their product, and even cover up risks discovered in their trial periods or testing procedures. Drugs are even marketed for uses that they were not even approved for. However, even if the drug that injured you was approved by the FDA, you still have a right to seek financial damages; FDA approval does not mean that the manufacturer will be protected against liability.
