Can I bring a claim concerning defective drugs and medical devices?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Product liability cases may involve dangerous and defective drugs, medications, and other medical or pharmaceutical devices. Pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers are required to adhere to industry standards and FDA regulations to ensure that their drugs are safe. They have an obligation to warn consumers of any potential adverse effects which could result from consuming the drug or medicine or using the device. Disclosure of initial negative effects is required so that a consumer can make an educated decision, weighing all of the pros and cons, before utilizing the product. Unfortunately, manufacturers sometimes fail to disclose all of the known dangerous side effects, or they fail to perform adequate testing before widespread use or distribution. Sadly, some companies have been known to put profits over people by failing to disclose known dangers. These companies should be held responsible for enjoying lucrative profits while putting the health and welfare of consumers at risk.

If you have been harmed or injured as a result of a defective drug or medical device, the attorneys at Lacy Katzen LLP may be able to help.
