Some of the types of claims that are made against pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies include:
- Negligence: This general claim alleges that a medical device or drug company failed to act reasonably or was reckless or malicious in failing to meet reasonable standards of care in testing, reporting, designing, manufacturing, or delivering its products.
- Inadequate Warning: A manufacturer’s warning may be deemed inadequate if it omits or fails to clearly express the true risks and/or potential complications to patients.
- Failure to Warn: Pharmaceutical companies have an obligation to clearly disclose all side effects and negative complications known to the company. These companies must also provide doctors with the data that doctors need to safely use the device to educate their patients and staff.
- Improper Marketing: This claims that drugs or devices were sold in an overly aggressive or inappropriate way, causing more patients to be injured or killed than would be true with appropriate marketing tactics. This also applies to cases of marketing devices or drugs for “off label”, “experimental”, or “non-FDA approved” use.
- Spoiled, Contaminated, or Tainted Drugs: Whether due to a failure to maintain a sterile environment or a failure to maintain refrigeration, etc., companies can be held responsible for injuries or deaths caused by these conditions.
If you believe you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a defective drug or device, or from a failure to warn about the product’s potential risks, please contact Brett Oppenheimer, PLLC for a free consultation.
