What is a Medical Lawsuit?
The sole purpose of having a Food and Drug Administration is so that Americans can be assured that any medical drugs and devices that they use are safe. It is taken for granted that the manufacturing companies adequately test their products for effectiveness and safety before these drugs are sent out into the market. However, that is not always the case and due to negligence by the manufacturer and flaws in the FDA’s approval process, there are some drugs and devices that come into the market that can cause severe damage to the body.
Thankfully, those individuals who have suffered these adverse side effects are able to file lawsuits and claim compensation from the manufacturers due to their negligence.
Why should you file a medical lawsuit?
- Products that have defects can be very harmful to anyone who uses them.
- These drugs have to be recalled.
- Whether it is a contaminated drug or a defective device it is important that the FDA is notified.
- You should not be the one who suffers due to someone else’s error.
- By filing a case against a particular manufacturer you make sure that no one else has to suffer like you have.
- If everyone stands up against these dangerous drugs and devices it will make the manufacturers think twice about whatever drug or device they are manufacturing and conduct proper tests before they are sent out into the market.

Things to know about medical lawsuits
Although, product liability cases can be vast, the lawyers who deal with these cases are specialized and can explain all the legal rights and options when the drug or device is recalled and they can also evaluate how strong your case is.
The lawsuits that are filed against prescription drugs and devices fall under special type of law that comes under product liability claims.
Each liability claim is unique in its own way; however these cases can be classified in three broad categories mainly,
- Design defects
- Marketing defects
- Manufacturing defects
These types of lawsuits are filed when individuals that are harmed by a drug or device come together and file a single lawsuit against the manufacturer.
In these types of cases, a panel transfers individual cases to a single court but those cases are not combined into a single lawsuit.
