Defective Medical Devices

Prescription drugs and medical devices do much to improve the quality of our lives. Unfortunately, some drugs and devices cause serious injuries because the manufacturer did not properly test its product or failed to provide sufficient warnings regarding its use.

If you or a loved one has experienced a serious side effect as a result of a dangerous drug or medical device, you are entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. At The Hale Law Firm, P.C., our product liability attorneys are dedicated to providing compassionate support to our clients as we relentlessly pursue negligent manufacturers and their insurance companies.

Manufacturers — Not the FDA — are Responsible for Patient Safety

Regrettably, for some companies, the drive for profits trumps the need to establish appropriate safety measures. Prescription drugs and devices are often rushed to market without adequate testing and warnings. Even after pharmaceutical products are released for use, the long-term effects require careful monitoring. When manufacturers choose to avoid their responsibilities to the public, the results are often tragic – and predictable.

Though the manufacturers often try to blame the Food and Drug Association (FDA), the truth is that the manufacturers are ultimately responsible for patient safety. While the FDA reviews the information provided by a company, if the company chooses to run inadequate studies, or bury bad test results, the manufacturers put people’s lives at risk.

The obligation of a drug manufacturer is to make a safe product. This includes the obligation to design, manufacture, inspect, and label a drug or medical device product appropriately. They must provide patients and physicians complete safety information about their product. If a drug manufacturer fails to warn the public about any serious side effects associated with taking its drugs and the drug is responsible for causing you harm, then the company can be held liable for medical expenses, therapy and treatment, lost income, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
