If you have you been injured or lost a loved one due to a dangerous drug or defective medical device, you may be entitled to compensation in the form of a large financial settlement from the liable manufacturer. Chances are, if the drug or medical device you took or used was dangerous or defective, other people using the same products might have similar issues. When many different people file claim against the same company or against the same product, the separate cases can be combined into what’s called a class action suit or mass tort.

Irresponsible Drug Companies Hurt, Not Heal, Innocent Victims
The manufacturing and sale of drugs is a very serious and thoroughly regulated business in America. All drugs must be rigorously tested and submitted for approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Proper warning labels and any potential side effects must also be identified and clearly marked. Drug manufacturers also must promote their products for FDA-approved purposes only, not “off-brand” purposes.
Unfortunately, some manufacturers fail to meet these stringent regulations either by accidental oversight or purposefully in order to turn profits. When this happens it is you, the consumer, who pays the price for it. Manufacturers can hurt consumers with dangerous and/or defective drugs in many ways, including:
- Manufacturer errors
- Insufficient warnings labels and side effect listings
- Dangerous drug design flaws
Product liability laws hold the manufacturers of defective and dangerous drugs liable for any resulting damages.
A Defective Medical Device Can Contribute to a Lifetime of Pain
Advancement in medicine and new medical devices are always designed to be a benefit to mankind. However, as in other aspects of life, things don’t always go as planned. Victims of defective medical devices are often left with long term conditions that adversely affect quality of life, and some even die as a result. Like any other product, when medical devices are defective and harmful, the manufacturers must be held accountable. They must notify the FDA and the public about their defective product and it’s risks. Not doing so in a timely fashion can constitute negligence. Some manufacturers may cover up or ignore the defect leaving potentially millions of consumers at risk of prolonged exposure.
Bringing Justice against Medical Manufacturers
Even more disturbing is the fact that many drug and medical device manufacturers will have a percentage of their budget set aside specifically for handling lawsuits and mass torts against them. This means they are expecting to produces and release dangerous drugs and defective medical equipment on a fairly regular basis. Putting profits before lives of consumers is an abhorrent injustice.
