Dangerous Drugs & Devices Lawyers in PA

Our attorneys represent victims of dangerous drugs and medical devices nationwide. Products created by pharmaceutical manufacturers and medical device companies treat diseases and injuries in much of the world’s population. However, the push for shareholder profits sometimes causes them to mislead doctors and patients, hide potential side effects, and continue selling the drugs and devices well after they know that they are unsafe for a certain percentage of patients.

In other cases, drug and device manufacturers ignore evidence about the dangers of their products following the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) approval. This head in the sand approach leaves patients at risk and unable to make an informed decision about using the product.

How Do I Know If My Injuries Are Due to Defective Products or Devices?

It’s hard to determine whether your injuries or post-surgical complications are due to your body’s ability to heal, the severity of your surgical procedure, or just standard symptoms of your surgery.  Many recalled medical and pharmaceutical products can cause damage years after a victim has received a medical procedure, or been prescribed certain pharmaceuticals.

The best way to know for sure is to call our team and learn about your options and hear from our attorneys about the severity of your case and what our team can do to get you the justice you deserve.

If you have suffered a severe illness or injury by any of the following drugs or medical devices, contact our team of lawyers at McEldrew Young Purtell today.
