Some of the largest pharmaceutical drug companies and medical device manufacturers are responsible for major health problems plaguing American citizens. Here are 3 simple reasons why Sokolove Law takes these types of personal injury cases:
- Drug and device manufacturers sometimes rush a product or a medication to the market, downplay negative side effects, or – in some cases – conceal knowledge from consumers that evidences the dangers of their products and/or medications.
- When citizens have been wrongly injured, they deserve to be compensated – and the drug companies and device manufacturers need to be held accountable.
- By filing lawsuits against corporations responsible for people’s injuries, medical industry companies are kept in check and future wrongdoing is deterred.
Lawsuits in this branch of tort law occur when pharmaceutical companies and/or medical device manufacturers downplay side effects of drugs and/or devices, or fail to perform sufficient testing before a drug or device becomes available to the general public. A third possibility is that medications or medical devices that are inappropriately prescribed cause adverse reactions in the unsuspecting people who take them.
