Jackson Defective Drug Attorneys
Helping West Tennessee families whose lives have been devastated by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices
Whether the prescribed medicine you take is supposed to calm you down or keep a deadly disease at bay, you trust those medications will be safe and effective. However, there are some drugs that have turned out to be defective due to harmful side effects or inaccurate labeling information.
When you have been injured after taking a dangerous drug, an aggressive Jackson defective drug attorney from the law firm of Bailey & Greer, PLLC, is ready to fight for your right to fair compensation. Since 1986, our products liability attorneys have been fighting for our clients who have been injured by defective drugs or faulty medical devices.
Unsafe prescription drugs and dangerous medical devices
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the federal agency which governs the pharmaceutical industry. When the FDA receives too many complaints about the adverse effects that a drug is having on consumers, they can issue a warning, order the drug manufacturer to include a warning on their label, or they can order the manufacturer to recall the product.
According to a 2016 study published in the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy (AJHP), the FDA recalled a total of 21,120 products during the study period, and the most common reasons for the recall included contamination, mislabeling, adverse reaction, defective product, and incorrect potency.
Doctors across the country write prescriptions for millions of pharmaceutical products each year. We tend to place blind trust in the recommendations our doctors give regarding medicine, believing the medicine to be both safe and effective. Pharmaceutical manufacturers for their part owe a duty to consumers to sufficiently research and test the products they sell to a trusting public. When they discover that a product is unsafe due to a manufacturing error, or they fail to warn the public about dangerous side effects of a drug, individuals who suffer harm when they take the drug may be able to take legal action against the drug or device maker to recover compensation for their injuries.
Examples of defective drugs
There have been dozens and dozens of prescription drugs that have turned out to cause dangerous and even deadly side effects. Some consumers who have suffered serious injury have filed negligence lawsuits against the manufacturer either in an individual lawsuit or a class action. Examples of those drugs include:
Defective and recalled medical devices
Many medical devices that are implanted into the body fail and cause injury to patients who are supposed to be helped by those devices. These devices include some of the following:
- Artificial hip and knee implants
- Trans-vaginal mesh
- Hernia mesh
- IVC filters
- Pain pumps
- Artificial heart valves
