Defective Drugs & Medical Devices Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
Pharmaceutical companies and makers of medical devices have a responsibility to consumers to provide safe products. While some drugs and medical devices may come with some risks, these must be disclosed to alert patients of possible dangers. When medical companies create products with known risks, they may be liable for any injuries their products cause to unsuspecting patients.
