Defective Drugs & Medical Devices
Many times the injury in a medical case is not the fault of a physician, but of the defective drugs or devices the doctor prescribes. When this happens, Watts Law Firm, P.C., is ready to seek compensation for Vermont residents for these negligent acts.Dangerous Drug Attorney for Hartford, Springfield and White River Junction
To be defective, a pharmaceutical or medical device must meet one of these three attributes:
- The product is defective because of an error in the manufacturing process.
- The product is dangerous because its design is flawed.
- The product is dangerous because users are not warned of possible negative effects.
If any of these conditions exist, the maker of the drug or device is liable for harm caused. It is possible to seek and obtain compensation even if the manufacturer was unaware of any danger. Care in manufacturing and labeling does not exempt manufacturers from claims.Defective Medical Devices Attorney for Springfield and Brattleboro
