Defective Drugs and Medical Devices

Nashville Defective Drug Lawyer Defending Victims Against Negligent Drug Companies

In our modern world, prescription drugs and medical devices can be crucial for keeping us healthy and active. Many individuals depend on prescription drugs and medical devices, such as hip implants, to work effectively to increase their quality of life. When they fail, these defective medical products can actually worsen our health problems as well as lead to wrongful death.

Drug and medical device manufacturers have a responsibility to provide consumers with products that are safe and effective. Defective drug lawyer Stanley A. Davis works to hold manufacturers of dangerous drugs and faulty medical devices accountable for their negligence. He believes that when someone is wronged, that individual deserves both justice and compensation.

How Do Defective Drugs and Medical Devices Reach Consumers?

In many cases, drug and medical device manufacturers simply make a negligent error when designing, making or distributing the product. Much like any other defective product, faulty medications and medical devices can be:

  • Defective by design
  • Defectively manufactured
  • Defective due to inadequate warnings or instructions for use

Manufacturers are ultimately responsible for creating safe products. However, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can warn the public of any known or potential dangers associated with a drug or medical device. Additionally, it can recall a product from the market if it is too unsafe for public use. It is crucial that you research to find out if the FDA has issued any warnings for medications or medical devices that you use and what the manufacturer responsibility is for that defective product.

What are Some Potentially Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices I Should Know About?

When studies reveal that a drug or medical device could be dangerous, the FDA typically reports this information to the public. Even though there are many possibly harmful medical products still available on the market that can reach consumers, here is a list of some known dangerous medical products to be aware of:

  • Actos. Doctors prescribe Actos to patients with Type II diabetes, but the drug may come with a significant risk of heart failure, heart attack and bladder cancer.
  • DePuy, Stryker and other metal-on-metal hip implants. Medical device manufacturers produce a number of hip implants made of metal. Parts of these hip implants can rub together and release shards of metal into the bloodstream. This can cause metallosis, pseudotumors, tissue and bone damage in addition to complete implant failure. The FDA has recalled many of these products. Anyone with a DePuy or Stryker hip implant who is now suffering serious injuries should consult with a medical professional as soon as possible in addition to a lawyer to learn about taking legal action.
  • Yaz, Yasmin and related products. The FDA issued multiple warnings for this oral contraceptive drug. It may be linked to serious blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms and wrongful death.
