FDA approval doesn’t guarantee a prescription drug is safe. The Federal Drug Administration tests drugs and approves them prior to becoming available to the public, but some drug side-effects and complications, particularly long-term side effects, can be difficult to determine. Despite action (and sometimes inaction) by everyone from the FDA, down to your local pharmacist, injuries from dangerous prescription drugs are on the rise. When a prescription drug does not work as promised, the side-effects and complications can be catastrophic. The experienced attorneys at Reyes Browne Reilley Law Firm have extensive mass tort experience and hold prescription drug companies and medical device manufacturers accountable for inadequate testing, usage, warnings, faulty design, and manufacturing defects so you and your family can get your life back on track after suffering from prescription drug side-effects and complications.
Defective Medical Devices and Implants
In the last 30 years, there have been unprecedented advancements in medicine. Unfortunately, the pace of development sometimes leads to inadequate testing and FDA regulation of new drugs, medical devices and implants as they are rushed to market. More importantly, many new medical devices are not thoroughly tested in real-life situations, or on a scale large enough to obtain meaningful tong-term data. Our attorneys have extensive experience with medical device and implant litigation.
