In many instances, medical treatment can include the use of a medical device as part of a surgical procedure or the use of medication to regulate a health issue. In a perfect world, all medical devices would work properly and all medications would provide their intended benefits without any adverse side effects. Unfortunately, this often isn’t the case.
Medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies invest millions of dollars in their products during the research, development and testing phases. There is tremendous pressure for these companies to recoup this investment and turn a profit on these products. All too often, profits are prioritized over patient safety, resulting in devastating consequences. If you’ve suffered an injury caused by a dangerous drug or defective medical device, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages.
The attorneys at Shaw Cowart LLP have the extensive experience and resources necessary to help you hold negligent pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers accountable for the injuries caused by their products. You can learn about your legal rights and options by speaking with one of our lawyers in person.
