Defective Product and Dangerous Drug Lawsuit Lawyers
We rely on so many different products every day that we take many of them for granted. When we’re sick or hurt, we depend on medical professionals to help us heal and to prescribe medications to improve our lives.
Trouble arises when any of these products are found to be faulty, defective, or dangerous.
Some manufacturers may recklessly market and promote products that have not been properly tested – and in a few cases, even when they have been tested. That’s when experienced product liability attorneys step in to help those who have suffered from the use of those products, and to help to try to ensure justice is done.
We divide these products into three categories:
- Dangerous Drugs
- Faulty Medical Devices
- Defective Products
Dangerous Drugs That Have Made It to the Public
While some of the tragic effects of these drugs and medications may truly be unforeseen after rigorous testing, the drug and pharmaceutical industry’s track record hardly instills confidence. Here is a list of dangerous drugs that have sparked lawsuits from their victims. If you or someone you love has suffered because of these drugs, call the product liability attorneys at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin at 1-866-900-7078:
- Allergan Biocell Implants
- Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate
Faulty or Defective Medical Devices: More Harm Than Good
Medicine is a constantly evolving profession. Every year, new techniques and products are developed to further help us maintain or recover our health. However, just as in the case with drug companies, there are products that are not properly tested, poorly designed, or otherwise dangerous to the patients they’re intended to help.
People can be seriously injured or even die as a result. And the companies that make these defective medical devices should not be allowed to profit from the suffering they cause. Here are some devices that are known failures. If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of one of these products, contact us immediately.
- Bair Hugger Blankets & Infection
- Contaminated Heater-Coolers
- DePuy Attune Knee
- Ethicon Surgical Staplers
- Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants and Metallosis
- Surgical Mesh
- Zimmer Biomet Shoulder Implant
- Zimmer Knee Implants & Device Failure
Flawed and Defective Products: Unexpected Danger
How many people do you know whose car has been recalled for its airbags? Millions of cars were because the devices meant to keep people safe in a crash could malfunction and hurt or kill them. This is just one example of a poorly designed, made, or tested product reaching the public and wreaking havoc.
Sometimes, these products are used for decades before the danger is realized. This was the case with things like leaded gasoline and asbestos. The products appeared to solve a problem or provide an advantage when they were introduced, only to find later that they had serious, life-threatening effects.
Other times, the product’s danger should have been discovered with responsible development and testing. The dangers those products pose should be clearly communicated so that users know the risks and can take precautions. If they don’t know the risks, they’re being exposed to injury or death.
Here are some examples of defective and flawed products. The victims of these products are still being discovered.
- AFFF Firefighting Foam
- Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure
- Neocate Baby Formula
- Talcum, Baby Powder and Ovarian Cancer
- 3M Earplugs
