Common Defective Drugs & Medical Devices

In recent years, certain medications and medical devices have come under fire for causing serious injuries and unintended side effects. In some cases, the companies that manufacture these products have issued recalls; in other instances, they have decided that paying out claims is easier and more cost-effective than removing their harmful products from the market. Regardless, we at Portner & Shure, P.A. believe that any company that prioritizes profits over consumer safety should be held accountable.

  • Physiomesh

Damages In Defective Drug & Medical Device Cases

Unfortunately, it is not always immediately obvious that a defective drug or medical device is causing the issues a patient is experiencing. These issues may include worsened medical condition, internal bleeding, infection, and other potentially life-threatening problems. As a result, patients often suffer serious injuries and conditions that require extensive additional medical treatment and lead to considerable pain and suffering.

By filing a product liability claim, you can seek compensation for your damages. These damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income/wages
  • Lost future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disability

Additionally, the surviving family members of someone who dies as a result of taking defective medication or receiving a defective medical device can file a wrongful death lawsuit and seek compensation for their losses.
