Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices

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 FDA approval. This head in the sand approach leaves patients at risk and unable to make an informed decision about using the product.

Our attorneys represent clients injured as a result of medical malpractice, inadequate side effect warnings and defective drugs or medical devices. If you have been seriously injured as a result of a drug or medical device, call the attorneys of McEldrew Young at 1-800-590-4116 to receive a free initial case evaluation.
