Pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers are under the strictest state and federal regulations for consumer product testing requirements. Despite extensive laboratory tests and field studies required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), every year drugs and medical implants are recalled from the medical marketplace when unknown side effects are reported by sick and injured patients.

Drug and medical device manufacturers often point to FDA approval as an excuse for ducking their liability for compensating victims for their defective and dangerous products. New Jersey and federal courts have ruled that FDA approval does not remove liability. Product liability cases involving medical products often involve the largest, most well-financed national and multinational corporations. Fighting a winning battle against their teams of attorneys requires knowing case law, as well as the medical issues relative to the types of side effects and injuries. We use our experience as one of the region’s leading medical malpractice litigation firms to get to the heart of the medical issues and the full extent of damages you are entitled to.
