Modern medicine is coming up with all sorts of life-saving and life-improving devices that they claim are safe for us to use. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the introduction of these products to market, and pharmaceutical companies are required to comply with FDA regulations when testing and manufacturing products. That doesn't stop things from slipping through the cracks or being approved without thorough research done on the long-term effects or durability of some of these products. This failure on the part of the manufacturers can cause you permanent damage.
Too Good to Be True
Your doctor may prescribe the latest "miracle cure" to help you, whether it is a prescription drug, a medical device or an implant. As time goes on, that cure may do you serious damage because of improper manufacturing, defective or dangerous design or failure on the part of the manufacturer to warn of hazards or instruct on proper use of the drug or device. Products that have caused this kind of damage are:
- Hip replacements
- Knee replacements
- Other joint replacements
- Breast implants
- Contraceptive devices
- Over the counter drugs
- Prescription drugs
It is also possible that your doctor made a mistake in the implementation of a product or in prescribing you a certain medication. Any of these occurrences are considered negligence on the part of the doctor or manufacturer and they should be held accountable.
