What are Medical Products Liability Claims?

The products you buy at the pharmacy are meant to make you feel better. But there are times when the prescription drugs or herbal supplements intended to make you feel better can, in fact, cause serious harm. Prescription drugs may have undisclosed risks, or they might even be manufactured improperly. Similarly, over-the-counter medications and supplements can be just as harmful.

Claims involving these types of products present complex medical and legal issues. An experienced drug attorney trained in evaluating and analyzing these claims is essential if you want to obtain full recovery.

Like drugs and dietary supplements, medical devices implanted in your body can sometimes negatively affect your health rather than improve it. In some cases, these devices have been found to fail prematurely, to be contaminated, or to pose a critical hazard when left in the body permanently.

Because drugs, dietary supplements, and medical devices are all subject to some level of overview by the United States Food and Drug Administration, specific legal and regulatory issues can have an impact on any potential tort lawsuit or class action suit. These issues must be taken into consideration when evaluating your injury claim against the product manufacturer or distributor. Speak with a veteran Ohio medical device attorney today by calling Burg Simpson at 513-852-5600 or fill out a Free Case Evaluation form here.

What procedures are used to handle cases involving medical products?

If you’re injured from a medication, supplement, or medical device sold nationwide and have a viable claim, you’ll probably discover that you’re just one of many consumers who’ve suffered a similar type of harm. These nationwide cases are frequently referred to as mass torts.

Like class action suits, mass torts are consolidated in one court. Consolidation benefits injured consumers because it permits them to join together and merge their resources rather than trying to fight a major drug company on their own. However, consolidation presents challenges as well, such as possibly forcing you to litigate in a distant court or requiring you to coordinate with other claimants and counsel who could have legal issues distinct from your own.

You should also be aware that not all medical product cases result in a consolidated proceeding. Burg Simpson Ohio represents many consumers harmed by defective drugs, dietary supplements, and medical products in cases filed individually across the country. If you find yourself involved in a pharmaceutical mass tort case, it’s critical that you’re represented by lawyers in Cincinnati Ohio who are experienced in complex litigation and who understand how to best protect you and your interests. Call Burg Simpson, one of the country’s leading tort law firms in Ohio, at 513-852-5600 or complete our Free Case Evaluation form today.

As with any potential claim, there are time limits for filing a lawsuit. If you believe you’ve been injured by a harmful drug, dietary supplement, or dangerous medical device, you should not wait to speak with a defective medical device attorney. Be aware that state laws differ timing when cases must be filed, careful analysis must be done as to the law that applies in your case.
