Medical Device And Pharmaceutical Injuries
Medical device makers and pharmaceutical companies are fundamentally profit-driven. Although the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates drugs and medical devices, thousands of Americans are seriously injured each year because of negligence related to the design, manufacturing, marketing, implementation or administration of these products.
Victims of injuries due to pharmaceutical, medical or product-related negligence can sue for damages. Typically, such lawsuits are claims for losses related to medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, fatalities and other serious matters. Some are concluded via class actions, while others are litigated on an individual basis.
