Patients fill their prescriptions with the expectation that there won’t be any undo risk in using them as directed. They also often follow their physician’s advice regarding surgery, understanding there is risk involved, but never suspecting that a medical device implanted in their body could do more harm than the condition it was designed to treat.
However, defective drugs and dangerous medical devices are far more common than one may expect, and leave many patients permanently injured or with financial losses. Pharmaceutical litigation is an area of personal injury law that offers a safety net for patients who require compensation for damages incurred as a result of a dangerous drug or defective medical device.
Defective drugs may be the result of a rush to market, faulty or misleading research, the manufacturing process, off-label marketing, the downplaying of side effects by the manufacturer or labeling that may not properly warn patients of any potential hazards. If a patient has been seriously injured by a defective drug or dangerous medical device they may have grounds for a pharmaceutical litigation case. A defective drug lawsuit may be the right option for those with serious injuries or damages and need compensation from those responsible for what they have endured.
