We trust that the medications and medical devices that are recommended to us by doctors will heal us. We have a right, at the very least, to expect that these products will not hurt us.

However, our Atlanta defective drug attorneys have decades of experience helping innocent people hurt by medications and medical devices. This very fact demonstrates that too many large pharmaceutical companies and device makers cut corners with their products.

Defective products are always dangerous. But injuries caused by defective medical devices and drugs are particularly tragic.

Types of Defective Drugs and Devices

Modern prescription drugs and medical devices are exceptionally powerful. They act in complicated ways and stimulate your body to produce hormones and chemicals. As such, they must be carefully designed, calibrated and manufactured.

However, the profit motive often induces pharmaceutical companies into cutting corners with design and manufacture. These companies can also use unethical tactics to receive approval from overwhelmed and under-funded federal regulators.
