Pharmaceutical Products: Medical Devices
Pharmaceutical and medical device companies develop many life-enhancing or life-saving products. Medical devices are popular among the medical community because they enhance surgical, post-surgical and other life-saving procedures. However, many medical devices cause serious injury or death when the products fail to work as intended and advertised.
When these products do harm, company practices and production methodologies are called in to question by the federal government. By law, pharmaceutical and medical device companies are required to give timely and adequate notice to consumers regarding potential product problems like malfunctions and side effects.
Problems arising from the use of medical devices can drastically alter lives and earning capacity. One problem that has surfaced in the world of medical devices is Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis, which is a condition that arises by using a pain pump after arthroscopic surgery. This condition is permanent, irreversible cartilage damage that causes extreme pain and restriction of movement. Other problems, particularly with heart-related devices, may result in death.
These results are preventable and should be addressed legally in order to compensate the injured for their physical injuries and emotional trauma - as well as to send a message to these large companies that they have a duty to ensure that product and patient safely work together.
The following is a list of products that have caused issues with patients and that have been recalled by the FDA :
Drugs are the key element of the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. Companies in North and South America own over fifty percent of that industry. Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline earned 50 billion dollars and 39 billion dollars respectively in 2005.
Clearly, society sees value in managing their health issues with the use of pharmaceutical drugs. Companies providing the drugs have a duty similar to those making medical devices. Drug companies must perform adequate research and development as well as warn the public of potential side effects and other issues that arise on a timely and effective basis.
The following is a list of drugs as defined by the Federal Drug Administration that are the cause of much concern :
Bringing a law suit for a pharmaceutical drug or medical device injury is usually a tort suit based in negligence. The statute of limitations, which is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit for the wrong, is two years from the date that a person discovers the injury.
