Our Defective Drug and Medical Device Lawyers Can Help
Medical devices and medications must have FDA approval before they are marketed and sold in the United States. To gain this approval, drugs as well as medical devices must undergo studies of their effectiveness and potential harmful effects. Even if the FDA grants approval, it does not guarantee the drug or medical device is safe for everyone. A defect in a product, insufficient warnings, or an incomplete label can cause serious injury to consumers. The manufacturer is responsible for making sure labels are accurate and updated to keep consumers informed and safe. When a pharmaceutical company introduces a dangerous product into the market or fails to warn consumers about a danger they knew or should have known about, then that company may be liable for the injuries that result.

Who May Be Liable in a Drug and Medical Device Injury Case?
Medical devices and medications are frequently subject to recalls due to harmful or fatal product defects. Although drugs and devices like this require FDA approval, pharmaceutical companies are still liable for injuries if they knew or should have known that a danger existed. A product liability attorney can help you file a claim if you suffered harm from a defective drug or implant.
If you sustain injuries due to a pharmaceutical device or drug, then you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer. Many people do not know that other parties in the marketing and supply chain may also may be liable. Depending on the circumstances, joint and several liability may apply. This means that if one defendant cannot pay their share of the damages, then the other defendants will be responsible for all or part of their share. Our defective drug and medical device attorneys can help you determine who the responsible party or parties may be, which might include:
- The manufacturer of the drug or medical device
- Sales reps
- Doctors, hospitals, or med clinics
Since drug and medial device defect cases are often complex, you should always consult with an attorney. A qualified San Francisco product liability attorney from our law firm can investigate your case for you.
How Do I find Out If My Medication Was Part of a Recall?

It is also a good idea to check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s recalled products database. If you discover that you are taking or have taken a medication that was subject to a recall, then speak with your physician right away.
