Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices: prescription drugs and medications

Dangerous Drugs and Medical Device Lawyers in Maine

Standing up for victims of dangerous drugs and medical devices

Every day, millions of people in the U.S. rely on prescription drugs and medical devices to treat illness and injury, and to improve the quality of their lives. Unfortunately, not all of these products are safe. Companies sometimes place dangerous drugs and medical devices on the market without adequate testing, safeguards, or warnings. Some of these cases are well publicized, while many others never make the headlines, but cause just as much pain to the people whose lives are affected.

When companies take shortcuts and fail to put safety first, consumers suffer the consequences.

If you have been harmed by a dangerous drug or a defective medical device, we are prepared to stand up for you and your family. Our team of experienced lawyers will hold these companies accountable and make sure you receive full compensation for the harm done to you.

Dangerous drugs: A troubled history of recalls, warnings, and big profits

Medications are supposed to help you feel better. Unfortunately, drug companies may place a drug on the market without sufficient research and monitoring procedures. They may not properly warn patients and physicians about the dangerous risks and side effects of their drugs. LEARN MORE

Drug and medical device manufacturers must meet legal obligations

The companies that make prescription drugs and medical devices have a legal responsibility to ensure their products are safe and must:

  • Conduct adequate clinical trials and other testing as required by the FDA.
  • Clearly explain the risks and benefits of their products to healthcare providers and consumers.
  • Continue to test their products for safety.

When corporations fail to satisfy any of these or other requirements, they can be held legally responsible to the people they hurt. Dangerous drug and medical device lawsuits involve complex legal and medical issues, and they are expensive to pursue. At Berman & Simmons, our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable in both the legal and medical aspects of your case, and we have the resources to take on any opponent.
