Mass Torts For Consumers Of Defective Drugs And Medical Devices
A user can suffer catastrophic injuries when unsafe drugs are sold to the public. Results can be disastrous when manufacturers fail to issue recalls after learning that some consumers have been harmed after taking medications or using medical devices.
Attorneys at Edelson Lechtzin LLP bring lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide in cases involving unsafe drugs or defective medical devices. We help people who have suffered injury or illnesses because manufacturers were negligent or did not tell them the truth. Our lawyers have achieved many successes when bringing individual claims. We also help many clients through mass torts.
How Does The Wrongdoing Come About?
Manufacturers’ negligence may occur before a product is sold to the public or after it has been on the market and reports of harmful reactions have come to light. Too often pharmaceutical manufacturers or manufacturers of medical devices (such as retrievable inferior vena cava filters or IVC filters) fail to adequately test the safety of their products prior to bringing them to market.
In other cases, makers of drugs and medical devices fail to properly monitor the results of their marketing campaigns after the fact. Harmful side effects may not manifest themselves until consumers have been using the products for some time. However deception or negligence happens, our attorneys are skilled at determining the most effective legal actions for obtaining justice for the injured.
