Holding Pharmaceutical Companies Accountable for Wrongdoing
Every pharmaceutical company and business within the medical industry knows it can deliver nothing but the safest and greatest medical devices to the market. Anything that causes unreasonable risk or harm to patients and device users is unacceptable. Although regulations and laws are in place to try to ensure device safety, companies are notorious for pushing products that do not meet the highest safety and testing standards.
In order to help remove defective medical devices from the market and keep others safe, the most effective method is often filing an injury claim against the product manufacturer or pharmaceutical company that marketed the dangerous device. We understand that when we take a case for a client, we are also representing everyone else in the same situation, or who could be hurt in the future if the defective device is allowed to stay on shelves and in circulation. This knowledge provides further drive to our personal injury lawyers to deliver nothing but the best possible legal advocacy that fights diligently for a maximized compensation amount.
Distinct Forms of Defects in Legal Cases
Defective medical device and dangerous drug cases will be more effective if the source of the defect can be clearly identified by the plaintiff's legal counsel.
In most cases, there are two distinct ways that a medical device can become defective:
- By design: When a medical device is not safely designed, perhaps due to a fundamental misunderstanding of engineering or anatomy, it will be defective no matter what. As an example, a femur replacement implant made from brittle material would be defective by design.
- By manufacturer's error: A medical device might be safely designed on paper but become unreasonably dangerous due to a mistake in the manufacturing process. In returning to the example, a femur replacement implant that is meant to be made from titanium but is accidentally swapped to a brittle metal on the manufacturing line would not be the designer's fault.
Our defective medical device attorneys take the time to thoroughly review products cited in our clients' cases. We want to know the device inside-out and understand the thought processes that went into its creation. With our careful analysis of the presented evidence, we may be able to pinpoint the source of the defect and strengthen your claim in the process.
Put Trial-Tested Attorneys in Your Corner
Pharmaceutical giants and other companies involved in the manufacturing of medical devices are always ready to challenge any accusations of a dangerous product, sometimes even trying to discredit Food and Drug Administration (FDA) findings. When faced with such a tenacious and authoritative defendant, you need a plaintiff's personal injury attorney that can match them with focus and drive of their own.
