Pharmaceutical & Medical Device Litigation
Advocates for Change
Each year, thousands of people are seriously injured or killed by prescription and over-the-counter drugs they trust to be safe. In fact, adverse reactions to prescription and over-the-counter drugs are one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
Likewise, people who rely on medical devices to help with issues ranging from birth control or diabetes to monitoring would-be fatal conditions often undergo surgery to implant such a device. When something goes wrong with the device, they can face serious internal injury and lasting complications.
Pharmaceutical litigation may describe lawsuits filed against pharmaceutical companies or other at-fault parties related to prescription drugs, OTC medication, medical devices, or other related products. If these products cause one or more patients to suffer injury or lose their lives, the manufacturer or possibly the doctor that prescribed the drug or used the device may be held accountable. Every case is different, so it is important to discuss your particular concerns with an attorney.
