Dangerous and Defective Drugs / Medical Devices
Each day thousands of people are injured by dangerous and defective drugs. Some of these drugs are over-the-counter medications, and others are prescription. Pharmacists and doctors can be held liable under a medical malpractice theory if drugs are prescribed without obtaining a sufficient medical history to ensure that contraindications do not occur. In other cases, people are injured every year from drug products that should have never been put on the market.
Drug companies that fail to fully test new drugs and then pressure the FDA to approve them should be held accountable for placing their profits before the well being of consumers. At Bednarz & Bednarz, our attorneys believe that it is not acceptable when these actions lead to someone being injured or killed.
Bednarz & Bednarz, located in Nashville, Tennessee, represents people who have been injured or killed as a result of unsafe pharmaceutical drugs.
Vioxx, Celebrex, Bextra, and other similar drugs have been linked to numerous harmful and potentially lethal side effects, such as heart attack, and stroke. We help consumers who suffer serious injury or death from products that were originally designed to help them. We have also been involved in litigation involving the De Puy hip implants, Wright Medical Technologies implants, Yaz cases and cases against the manufacturers of vaginal mesh.
Liability in these cases does not require the willful misrepresentation of the medication or intentional concealment of harmful side effects and adverse reactions.
If a medication is marketed and presented to the public as safe, the manufacturer, distributor, and retailer may be held liable if that product proves over time to be dangerous or harmful. At Bednarz & Bednarz, our Nashville Vioxx attorneys and Celebrex lawyers have a proven record of success litigating unsafe drug and prescription medication cases. Our law firm has represented consumers throughout middle Tennessee who have been victimized by unsafe drugs.
