Helping Tennessee families harmed by dangerous medication and devices
We rely on our medications to help us get well; we certainly do not expect them to do us harm. Yet every day, people in Tennessee and around the country are hurt, made ill or have their current conditions exacerbated by defective drugs and dangerous medical devices. Those victims who are injured by defective medical devices and drugs have the right to file a lawsuit to recover for medical bills, lost wages and the loss of enjoyment of life.
The injuries you sustain can often be severe and permanent, and they can literally ruin families. Defective drug and device cases are complex, and you should only hire a law firm with substantial experience and the financial resources to take on these major corporations. Bailey & Greer, PLLC has the experience, the skills and the resources you want on your side during this difficult time.
Reasons for dangerous drugs and medical devices
Every year unsafe medical devices and drugs injure thousands of people, and year after year we see dangerous products pulled from the market by the FDA. The reason? Major pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies have factored these injuries into the cost of doing business. These powerful companies make more profit when they rush drugs and devices to market than if they take precautions through proper testing, warnings and other safeguards.
Drug and medical device makers should also give the public fair warning of all of the risks associated with the product. When they fail to follow these basic safety rules and a person is injured, they are legally responsible for the harm caused.
Common Defective Products and Drugs
While many medical devices and drugs have been found to be defective, some can have truly devastating side effects. Some of the most dangerous drugs and medical devices on the market include:
- Actos *
- Taxotere – Alopecia
- DePuy ASR Hip Implant
- Defective Hernia Mesh
- Penile injections
- Risperdal *
- Topical testosterone therapies, like AndroGel
- Transvaginal mesh/ pelvic mesh products
* Bailey & Greer is no longer accepting these cases
