Defective Drugs & Medical Devices
Prescription drugs and medical devices have helped tens of millions of Americans lead longer, healthier lives. Unfortunately, prescription drugs and medical devices are not always properly tested before they reach the patient. Drug companies have a great financial incentive to bring their product to the market as soon as possible. When these drugs or devices are not properly tested, patients may suffer from unforeseen side effects. In many cases, medicine that was intended to save lives ends up causing injury and even death.
The lawyers of Bentoff & Duber have dedicated our careers to helping people throughout northeast Ohio and beyond who have been harmed by the negligence of another.
There are many drugs and medical devices known to be defective. Some of these drugs and devices include:
- DePuy hip implants
- Duragesic pain patches
- Kugel mesh implants
- Proton pump inhibitors, such as Prilosec, Prevacid, Nexium, Trasylol
- Yaz (known in generic form as Ocella)
Defective drugs and medical devices typically injure many people. As a result, many of these claims are resolved in class action or mass tort litigation. In any case involving defective medical products, you can be certain that the opposition will go to great lengths to deny their liability. These cases are usually hard fought, but Bentoff & Duber has a record of success in challenging these large corporations. We may work in conjunction with other law firms to help our clients recover full and fair compensation.
