Types of Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices
Prescription medications and medical devices often reach consumers before thorough testing for potential side-effects. These risks are compounded by the fact that pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers sometimes promote these products for uses other than those for which they were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Most defective drug and medical device cases stem from insufficient warnings about the products’ risks or deceptive marketing tactics.
The Williams Law Firm, P.C. is currently investigating dangerous medication and defective medical device claims related to:
- Artificial hips and hip implants
- Vaginal mesh
- Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella
Each of these prescription drugs and medical devices has been linked to severe health complications.
Liability in Defective Drug and Medical Device Cases
Despite the presence of state and federal regulations and agencies such as the FDA intended to protect consumers, hundreds of dangerous medications and defective medical devices make their way to market every year.
The manufacturers of those products may be held accountable for any resulting harm if those drugs or medical devices reached consumers with:
- A design flaw (the design of the product itself was defective)
- A manufacturing flaw (a problem in production, such as the introduction of a hazardous material or a defect in manufacturing the product as designed)
- Deceptive marketing (inadequate instructions, or exaggerated or erroneous information about the product and its effects)
- Failure to warn (lack of notice about potentially harmful side-effects)
