Physicians and patients alike depend upon pharmaceutical companies to produce new medical products in the best interest of the consumer. Our personal injury lawyers work diligently with product specialists to identify potentially harmful drugs, inadequate product labels, incomplete provider guidance, device designs as well as known complications. Unfortunately, there are cases where manufacturers choose not to notify consumers or their healthcare provider that a reported problem has been identified.
