Defective Drugs and Medical Products
Many types of defective products can cause severe damage, but sometimes the products that cause harm are precisely the prescription medications or medical devices that were supposed to help ill or injured patients. Every year, as the drug industry and other manufacturers bring new products to the market, we hear about recalls of defective drugs or other medical products such as stents or joint replacements. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration attempts to keep the public informed about recalls and risks associated with various medical products that are defectively manufactured, designed, or labeled, but the warnings often come after many people have already been harmed.
Among the drugs and other medical products involved in recent litigations are
- DePuy Hip Replacement devices
- Zimmer Knee Replacement devices
- Actos Bladder Cancer Lawsuits
- Takeda Pharmaceuticals faces lawsuits for Actos bladder cancer link.
When people are injured by the use of a defective product, including defective drugs or other medical products, they can seek compensation from the manufacturers and suppliers of those products. Such claims request compensation for the injured person’s medical bills related to the use of the defective product; lost wages; pain and suffering; and other damages caused by the defective product. When defective products lead to untimely death, surviving family members can also seek compensation through wrongful death claims.
While manufacturers of drugs and medical devices help improve many people’s lives, their primary goal is still to make money. As a result, companies sometimes introduce products into the market without sufficient testing, cover up reports of adverse side-effects, or provide insufficient warnings about potential risks associated with their products.
