Defective drugs and medical devices have killed or severely injured thousands of people in the U.S. Medical drug and device manufacturers must take responsibility when their products, which are supposed to improve patients’ quality of life, end up further injuring their patients.
Large companies often choose profitability over safety. Manufacturers are responsible to produce safe medicines and medical devices, and when they fail to do so, they may be liable for a lawsuit. Currently, our Allentown medical malpractice attorneys are evaluating the possibility of future opioid lawsuits.
