When Defective Medical Devices And Drugs Cause Harm
Medical devices save lives. They improve quality of life. However, when they are defective, the results can be disastrous, and patients die or suffer serious injury and illness. When the defects are the result of negligence in the design, manufacture or marketing of the device, patients may be eligible to seek compensation.
At Duffield, Lovejoy & Boggs, Attorneys at Law, our West Virginia lawyers help clients undertake lawsuits against the producers of medical devices and pharmaceuticals. We help them join class-action lawsuits and work with several national firms that focus on these types of cases.
When bad things happen to good people, we’re here to help.
There has been legal action over the injury-causing defects of devices such as:
- DePuy hip replacements
- DePuy Orthopedics ASR Hip Implants
- DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implants
- Merck Fosamax
- Gardasil vaccine
- Zimmer knees
- Zimmer Durom Cup Hip Socket Implant
- Zimmer NexGen Knee Implant
- LifeCell AlloDerm Regenerative Tissue Matrix
Additionally, there has been significant litigation over problems with birth control drugs such as Yasmin/Yaz, Accutane, antidepressants such as Paxil and Wellbutrin, antibiotics such as Cipro, and pain medications such as Bextra, Vioxx, Darvocet and Duragesic. These and many other defective prescription medications have been the subject of individual and class-action lawsuits throughout the United States.
When our clients join national lawsuits, they join a team with legal power equal to that of multinational pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers. There is a huge amount of money at stake for the defendant companies, and they use their significant resources to fight these cases aggressively. A nationwide class-action lawsuit helps level the playing field.
