We hold medical manufacturers accountable
Florida has been the site of many injuries caused by defective medical devices and drugs. With our retired and aging population, Floridians take more prescription drugs and require more medical devices than the people in some other states. Central Florida has a high concentration of Floridians ages 65 and older.
Among the medical devices that have generated a lot of injury reports are:
- Hip replacements
- Sensor equipped insulin pumps
- Spinal stimulators
- VP shunts (ventriculoperitoneal shunting)
- Surgical mesh
- Implanted insulin pumps
With you every step of the way
Filing a claim against a medical drug or device company is brave.
You’re making a big, bold, smart move at a difficult time in your life. You’re suffering with a persistent ailment as well as a defective medical treatment or dangerous drugs. If that’s not the case, a cloud of worry is likely hanging over your head. You will always wonder if, one day, you will have to experience the unintended serious side effects of malfunctioning medicine.
When you file your claim, you will be protecting people in your community from similar pain. Our firm wants to fight for you in this battle for essential victim rights and the compensation you require.
Types of dangerous drugs
About half of all Americans take at least one prescription drug.
For a drug to be approved in the U.S., it must pass three rounds of human testing. These trials don’t always uncover short- and long-term side effects.
An analysis of 9 years of FDA data found that about one-third of approved prescription drugs had unintended side effects when they hit the market.
When a significant new side effect is discovered, it is reported to the FDA. Sometimes this results in drugs and devices being recalled. Or they could be required to come with a “black box” warning – something only given to the riskiest drugs available.
Among the drug types that generate a lot of injury reports are:
- Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) – some brands have been found to cause kidney disease, bone fractures and heart attacks.
- Antipsychotic drugs – many reports have been filed on brands that cause increased risky behavior like binge eating, sex addiction, compulsive shopping or gambling.
- Blood thinners – various brands were recently found to contain cancer-causing chemicals.
The FDA will pull drugs from the market if the risks of the medication outweigh the benefits. A company can also decide to issue a recall on its product.
