FDA Recall, Warning or Action: Initially, the FDA withdrew Raptiva® from the market due to the risk of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML).
Medical providers depend upon drug manufacturers to develop new medications and products to aid in caring for their patients. Our law firm’s personal injury lawyers work jointly with product specialists, design engineers and healthcare professionals to pinpoint defective drugs, inadequate warning labeling, incomplete provider information, device components and undocumented but known complications. In some instances, the pharmaceutical company or distributor may have already taken proactive steps to remove the dangerous drug, or to provide adequate instructions or warnings.
