When big corporations are anxious to put a new product on the market so that they can begin to make sales, they often forget (or even deliberately ignore) the need to make those products safe.
From defective prescription medications to SUVs prone to rollovers, these products can take a terrible toll on the consumers who bought and used the products. Dangerous products can and do cause serious injury and even wrongful death.
Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications are supposed to help us stay healthy, but when those drugs don't work as intended, the consequences can be disastrous.
Defective Medical Devices
When medical devices malfunction or fail, they may cause injuries that are far more debilitating than the condition they were intended to cure.
The claims most commonly associated with consumer products are negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection claims.
