Unsafe drugs and medical devices can pose a serious health risk to innocent consumers. Poorly designed or inadequately tested medical devices can cause infection, further injury, or even death. Pharmaceutical companies sometimes push drugs to market, only to issue recalls or warnings months or years later about potentially life-threatening side effects. Some of these products are still available to the public and have caused injuries which include heart failure, liver damage, brain injury, stroke, blood clots and suicide. Examples of potentially unsafe drugs and medical devices include:
The attorneys at Feldman Shepherd have handled many unsafe drugs and medical devices cases. Our team was heavily involved in the nationwide Vioxx litigation, representing numerous clients who suffered heart attacks and strokes after being prescribed the popular pain management drug. Our attorneys also negotiated a $6.5 million settlement for the family of a teenager who suffered severe brain damage after requiring the use of a resuscitation bag during surgery. The bag, which was manufactured in Mexico against safety regulations, had a defective air flow nozzle which rendered it useless in providing a secondary air supply to the patient during surgery.
