Illinois Drug and Medical Device Liability Attorneys

Representing the Victims of Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs and Medical Devices

These days, more and more prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, supplements, and medical devices are being fast-tracked through the development, approval, and manufacturing process. And consumers are getting hurt as a result. Unsafe drugs cause serious side effects to consumers, and defective medical devices result in significant injuries to patients.

At Cogan & Power, P.C., our Chicago product liability attorneys have considerable experience representing clients who have been the victim of medical malpractice or defective drugs and medical devices. We are dedicated to helping our clients obtain the maximum recovery possible, and strive to make the marketplace safer for future consumers.

Committed Medical Accident and Injury Lawyers

Unsafe pharmaceuticals and defective medical device claims often give rise to actions involving multiple defendants and complex legal claims. We recently obtained an $11.4 million verdict in a wrongful death case, in which the victim suffered an injury to his cervical cord during surgery. The lawsuit named both the hospital and the medical device manufacturer as defendants and included medical malpractice, product liability, and spoliation claims. Likewise, in a pharmaceutical negligence case, we not only obtained $3.7 million for the victim’s family in a wrongful death action, but we also made sure that the hospital discontinued the use of the dangerous medication.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of an unsafe pharmaceutical or a defective medical device, please contact our office at (312) 477-2500 for a free consultation with one of our medical product liability attorneys.

Dangerous and Defective Medical Devices

Like all manufacturers, medical device engineers and manufacturers have an obligation to provide safe medical devices to the public. If a medical device is found to be dangerous or defective, the manufacturer has an obligation to remove the unsafe product from the market and correct any safety issues. The failure to do so could result in product liability. Certain medical devices have been known to be more likely to cause bodily injury or death, including:

  • Defective Cosmetic Implants
  • Defibrillators
  • Heart Stents
  • Intrathecal Drug Pumps
  • Knee and Hip Implants
  • Pacemakers
  • Surgical Instruments
  • Ventilators

Causes of Unsafe Pharmaceuticals and Defective Medical Devices

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to the entry of unsafe drugs and defective medical devices into the marketplace, including:

  • Drug contamination
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Improper or insufficient testing prior to FDA approval
  • Failure to include proper warning labels of possible side effects and potential druginteractions
  • Off-label marketing
