A defective drug is a prescription or over-the-counter medication that causes physical, psychological, emotional injury, or death. A defective device is a device that is faulty or has malfunctions and causes serious damages or death to patients. Whatever the precise cause of the defect is, the experienced defective drug and/or device lawyers at The Cochran Firm can help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve for your injury.
Occasionally these types of cases may be referred to as “Mass Torts” in legal circles, because a massive number of victims may result from the defective drug or device. You should not have to suffer in silence. Our defective drugs and devices legal team will speak with you during a free, no-obligation initial consultation and answer all of your questions about defective drugs or devices.
Drug manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies have an obligation to produce safe drugs and to conduct all necessary tests to determine a drug’s safety for human use. These companies must include and warn of any potential side effects on the packaging in order for consumers to be able to make an informed decision about the drug usage.
If a drug company fails to live up to that legal responsibility, you may suffer serious medical or physical consequences or even death.
