LaFollette Dangerous Drug & Defective Medical Device Lawyer
Did you recently suffer injuries caused by a dangerous drug or a defective medical device? When patients suffer harmed because of a safety issue in a medication or a medical device, those patients may be able to file product liability lawsuits in order to seek compensation. Like many injured plaintiffs, you likely learned about the dangerous drug or defective medical device after experiencing an injury or learning about a product safety recall. Before product recalls are issued, many consumers often sustain severe and life-threatening injuries from those products.
Given that many medications are essential for a patient’s health, it can be difficult to know what to do after learning that a drug you rely on has been subject to a recall. And since so many medical devices are implants that require surgery, determining your path forward after a device has been recalled can be extremely difficult. Many patients require multiple surgeries in order to correct the harm caused by a defective medication or device. An experienced LaFollette dangerous drug lawyer can get started on your case today.
Types of Dangerous Drugs & Defective Medical Devices
Every year, dangerous drugs, products, and defective medical devices cause thousands of people to suffer injuries, undergo multiple corrective surgeries, and even lose their lives.
Dangerous products, prescription and over-the-counter drugs, and medical devices that we are actively pursuing:
- 3M Earplugs
- Allergan Breast Implant
- Bladder Sling
- Hernia Mesh – Bard – Gore – Ethicon – Atrium
- IVC Filter
- Surgical Staplers
- Transvaginal Mesh
- Talcum Powder/Baby Powder
- Zantac OTC
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.
