The pharmaceutical industry is incredibly profitable and highly competitive. As companies aggressively market their products, they often ignore or minimize health risks in order to quickly begin making money. As a result, many people are injured and / or killed by unsafe products. The failure of pharmaceutical companies to ensure that what they make available to the public is safe and healthy can make them responsible for compensating victims. With the assistance of the experienced legal team at Stern Law Group, you can file a personal injury claim on the basis of product liability law and recover the damages you suffered.
Unsafe Pharmaceutical and Medical Products
Consumers use pharmaceutical products with the intention and belief that such products will improve their quality of life. While dangerous drugs and medications account for a large percentage of pharmaceutical injuries, many consumers are also injured by medical devices. These products may have design flaws or manufacturing defects that can cause accidents and injuries to the people who use them. In many cases, the consumers using these products are already in a fragile condition, which increases the risk for serious injuries and fatalities. A few examples of pharmaceutical products that can injure consumers include:
- Artificial hip and joint implants
- Breast implants
- Dental implants
- Heart and cardiac devices, such as pacemakers
- Medicine pumps
- Surgical mesh
