Defective Medical Device & Dangerous and Defective Drug Attorney

Leading Defective Drug and Medical Device Lawyer Based in Philadelphia

We often take for granted the rigorous testing that goes into a prescription or over-the-counter medicine before it ever can be put on a shelf in your local supermarket or pharmacy. We trust that pharmaceutical companies are doing their due diligence and properly testing their product before it can be prescribed and purchased. The same is true for medical devices and medical equipment—we expect them to adhere to the guidelines set by the US Food and Drug Administration. Unfortunately, our trust in these companies can be misplaced, and we pay the price in devastating injuries and even death. 

If you or a loved one have been the victim of a defective medical device, defective drug, or dangerous drug, you need an experienced legal team at your side that know how to bring these big-name corporations to justice. You need Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway. 


What Are Dangerous Drugs?

Dangerous drugs are prescription and over-the-counter medications that have been marketed as solutions to acute and chronic conditions but can result in addiction, illness, and even death—all of which could have been prevented if the pharmaceutical company hadn’t been ignoring the safety of their consumers to boost their bottom line. 

Dangerous drugs may include oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, lorcaserin, acetaminophen, omeprazole, esomeprazole, and more. If you believe the medicine you take has caused you or a loved one harm, don’t wait another moment—talk to our team of experienced dangerous drug lawyers today.


What Are Defective Drugs?

While there is some overlap between dangerous drugs and defective drugs (technically, defective drugs are dangerous), defective drugs fall into a more specific definition. Defective drugs are medications with severe and even deadly side effects that outweigh the benefits of taking that medication. 

There can be a variety of reasons why a defective drug remains on the market, including deception on the part of the pharmaceutical company, ineffective reporting, unwillingness to recall, and more. Ultimately, a defective drug can and does do terrible damage to families around the country, and we know just how to hold these corporations responsible for their greed, negligence, and deception. 


What Are Defective Medical Devices?

Defective medical devices and defective medical equipment are products that have manufacturing defects, cause unexpected and severe side effects or death, and create severe pain and suffering. In most cases, companies choose to recall their medical devices, but oftentimes, the recall comes too late for some families. 

You may be thinking that as long as you don’t have a hip or knee implant or a pacemaker, you would never experience the consequences of a medical device defect. The truth is that anything you place on or in your body for the purposes of wellness can be considered a medical device, including earplugs, IUDs, CPAP machines, and breast implants. Even the batteries in a medical device can cause harm if manufactured incorrectly or paired erroneously with medical equipment. 

While the FDA does report on recalled medical devices, it’s best to have a team in your corner that can do the research and build the case for you. That’s why we want you to call Joe Stampone of Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway. Your consultation is free, and we’re ready to take your call.
