Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs and Medical Devices
If you are like most people, you trust that your physicians, the drug companies and the health care community are looking out for your safety. However, sometimes the actions or negligence of others can have a devastating impact on your health and wellness.
Prescription drugs and medications are intended to provide relief from physical, mental and emotional symptoms, prevent medical problems or conditions or perhaps provide the cure for a medical diagnosis. Unfortunately, there have been times when some pharmaceutical drugs have not been tested correctly or completely, protocols have not been followed or something has gone wrong in the process of bringing a product to market. As a result people are harmed by the very thing they believe will help them.
Your health and well-being is an essential part of your quality of life. While you can’t put a price on the value of your health, once an injury occurs as a result of taking a prescription or over the counter drug, compensation from the drug company or manufacturer may be the only help you may have to move forward and assist in your recovery.
DEFECTIVE MEDICAL DEVICES OR PRODUCTS
Physicians often use medical devices to treat an illness, injury or even to aide or assist with a person’s disability. While such devices are supposed to help treat illness or disability sometimes such devices can be the cause for an injury or even cause death. Sometimes a medical device or product may be poorly manufactured, have a flawed design or may have been falsely marketed or advertised. In recent years, there has been litigation involving medical devices including heart defibrillators, orthopedic implants such as hip replacements. Regardless of the type of product, you may be due compensation if you have been harmed by a defective medical device.
