Title: Unsafe Drugs and Medical Devices Attorney in Philadelphia


1
  • Unsafe Drugs and Medical Devices Attorney in
    Philadelphia

2
  • Doctors all across the United States rely on a
    wide variety of drugs and medical devices to
    treat their patients. And while the vast majority
    of these drugs are safe because they are tested
    and approved by the U.S. The Food and Drug
    Administration (FDA) and the vast majority of
    medical devices meet all safety standards and
    requirements imposed by federal and state law,
    there is always a risk of being harmed by an
    unsafe drug or medical device in the course of
    treatment, diagnosis, or surgery.

3
  • While the FDA must ensure that all drugs entering
    the market for consumers are safe, not all
    medical professionals at hospitals and other
    medical facilities use, prescribe and store these
    drugs properly.The same can be said about medical
    devices and equipment used by healthcare
    providers, as there is always a risk of injury by
    an unsafe medical device if the hospital fails to
    inspect and maintain the device or equipment in
    compliance with safety requirements or uses the
    device negligently or carelessly.

How Using An Unsafe Drug Or Device is Medical
Malpractice
  • Unfortunately, there are many cases in which
    patients sustain injuries or their medical
    condition worsens because their doctor uses an
    unsafe drug or medical device, explains
    Philadelphia dangerous drugs attorney at The
    Weitz Firm, LLC. In this case, you have two
    options file a medical malpractice claim against
    the doctor or file a product liability claim
    against the manufacturer of the drug.

5
  • To figure out which option is best, you need to
    determine whether or not the drug was used by the
    doctor in a reasonably foreseeable manner and
    whether the drug had a manufacturing or design
    defect or it was improperly marketed or
    defective.While drug manufacturers have a duty to
    ensure that their products are safe, the vast
    majority of drugs carry certain risks and side
    effects.

6
Product Liability Vs. Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
  • If you are filing a product liability claim
    against the drug manufacturer for selling or
    distributing a defective or otherwise unsafe
    drug, you will have to prove that the drug had a
    manufacturing defect, a design defect, or it was
    improperly marketed.

7
  • Even if you know for a fact that the drug that
    caused you harm is defective or unsafe, and you
    have decided to pursue a product liability claim,
    you may want to consider filing a medical
    malpractice claim as well. After all, the doctor
    that prescribed, administered, or recommended
    that drug may still be held liable if he or she
    was negligent and that negligence caused your
    injury, explains drugs dangerous attorney in
    Philadelphia.

8
In order to file a medical malpractice lawsuit
against a medical professional, you will have to
establish that
  • A doctor/patient relationship existed
  • The doctor breached his or her duty of care by
    providing negligent care
  • That negligence was a direct cause of your injury
    and
  • You suffered damages or losses as a result of
    that injury

9
  • Let a medical malpractice lawyers at The Weitz
    Firm, LLC, review your case and help you recover
    damages for being harmed by an unsafe drug or
    medical device.
