Defective Medical Implant & Dangerous Drug Attorneys
Get the compensation you deserve when you are injured by a dangerous drug or medical device
Most people don’t think much about going to the pharmacy and picking up some cough syrup or an antibiotic to help them feel better when they are sick. Medicine is meant to cure you, not harm you. Unfortunately, medicine and medical devices are designed for profit. In the pursuit to maximize those profits, corners can be cut. Proper safety tests are not conducted. Potentially damaging research is ignored. And, consumers end up becoming seriously ill or injured from a drug or device meant to help you. Medical devices like hip implants or IVC filters meant to improve your health or quality of life can cause chronic pain or other serious health problems, costing you thousands in medical care and an immeasurable amount of suffering, all due to a design flaw.
The experienced injury attorneys at Lomurro Law fight to get the compensation you deserve for the injuries you suffer as a result of taking a dangerous drug or from a faulty medical device. Our attorneys are committed to getting results, and have decades of experience litigating dangerous drug and defective medical device cases.
Types of medical device cases
Like dangerous drugs, some medical devices meant to treat health problems and improve your quality of life can actually cause harm. Devices can break down in your body and lead to life-threatening side effects. Some of the cases we handle involving medical devices include:
- IVC filters
- Bair Hugger
- Metal-on-metal hip implants
- Knee implants
- IUD birth control devices
- Hernia mesh
- Sorin heater cooler system
Some of the cases our attorneys have handled include metal-on-metal hip implants from companies like Stryker and DePuy. These defective implants rub together and leave behind small metal shavings in the body that can lead to tissue death and chronic pain. Our New Jersey injury attorneys have the skill and experience to handle any type of medical device injury, whether it includes one of these well-known types of devices or a new medical device.
Work with an attorney dedicated to results
Doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies all have an army of lawyers working on their side to protect their multi-billion dollar industry. Many patients feel intimidated by the thought of taking on the industry or feel that they have no options. We’re here to tell you that you do have options, and our injury lawyers work diligently to protect your rights and get the compensation that you deserve.
Common types of dangerous drugs
In recent years, our attorneys have seen a rise in dangerous drugs ranging from diet aids, to medications designed for osteoporosis and bladder cancer. Some of the cases we handle involve:
- Risperdal antipsychotic medication
- Xarelto blood thinner
- Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella birth control
Many of these drugs have been linked to potentially serious and life-threatening side effects. For example, birth control like Yaz and Ocella have been linked to blood clots, Benicar has been shown to cause sprue-like enteropathy, a disease with Celiac-like symptoms. In addition, Benicar use has been linked to villous atrophy, a condition which damages the ability of the small intestine to absorb nutrients. Symptoms include severe, chronic diarrhea, malnutrition and substantial weight loss. Many more supposedly safe drugs prescribed by doctors every day have been linked to other serious side effects. Some of these can limit your mobility, impair your quality of life, or even lead to your death.
If you or a loved one are injured by taking one of these drugs after putting your trust in your doctor and the pharmaceutical industry, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering. That may include the cost of medical bills and time lost from work, as well as intangibles like the pain you experience. Our experienced injury attorneys fight to maximize the compensation you obtain from drug companies or doctors who negligently prescribed this medication.
