Defective Medical Device Lawyers
A defective medical device can injure a person in many ways. Pelvic mesh is not biocompatible and causes erosion, pain, and permanent injury. An artificial joint can wear out, requiring a second or even third operation to replace it. Pacemakers can abruptly cease functioning, placing the patient at severe risk.

Defective Drug Lawyers
A defective drug can cause severe injuries and death to unsuspecting patients. A defective or unsafe drug includes an unsafe medication that causes side effects and complications. For example, a blood pressure drug like Benicar can cause gastrointestinal injuries. A blood thinner like Xarelto can cause dangerous internal bleeding. Risperdal can cause gynecomastia, or abnormal breast growth in boys. Testosterone can cause heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiac injuries.
