Drug & Medical Device Injuries

Drug and medical device markets are very big industries in the United States. The United States remains the largest medical device market in the world with sales expected to reach $155 billion by 2017 and an estimated 4.27 billion prescriptions are written in the United States every year.

Both industry sectors use lobbyists and campaign contributions to further their interests. In particular, the influence of these industries sometimes allows drugs and medical devices to reach the market without adequate testing or even with known defects.

Drugs and medical devices are causing injuries

The industries put profits over people, and patients are occasionally injured by their use of prescription medications and medical devices. When it can be demonstrated that a company was negligent in its design, manufacture, marketing and packaging of its products, injured patients may be eligible for compensation.

That's where we come in.
