New York Defective Drugs & Devices Lawyers

Over the last 50 years, medications and medical implants have revolutionized the treatment of illness, injury, and disease.  The things that modern medicine can accomplish seem like miracles.  Unfortunately, not all medications and medical prosthesis are as safe.  Over the last few decades, there have been significant problems with some medications and medical devices causing horrendous injuries, suffering and even death in patients.

You want to believe that pharmaceutical companies, medical manufacturers, pharmacies and your doctors have your best interests in mind.
However, that is not always the case.
Sadly, sometimes corporate profits are more important than consumer safety.

 

Leaders In The Field of Personal Injury

That is why hundreds of class action lawsuits have been filed across the United States to hold these corporations responsible for the harm that they have caused.  These lawsuits seek to prove that drug manufacturers and medical device manufacturers were negligent in the design, creation, and manufacture of their products while seeking to compensate the victims for the pain and suffering they have had to endure.
