When we take a prescribed drug or have a medical device implanted in our body, we assume the product will do us no harm. Unfortunately, medical companies sometimes rush unsafe products to market and then continue to sell those products even after dangerous side effects become known.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, our lawyers hold medical companies accountable when their products injure or kill unsuspecting people. The following pages provide more information about the types of cases we take on:
- Defective medical devices: If a device such as a pacemaker or defibrillator malfunctions while inside your body, it may cost you your life.
- Prescription drug side effects: New drugs undergo clinical trials to ensure that they are both safe and effective for the treatment of specific conditions. Unfortunately, many medications with dangerous side effects slip through testing. As a result, thousands of people suffer serious and sometimes fatal side effects after taking drugs that are supposed to be safe.
- Over-the-counter drug side effects: Many over-the-counter drugs have been around for years and are effective at relieving pain or other ailments. However, many possess dangerous side effects. One example is Tylenol, which can destroy your liver.
No matter what type of medical product caused your injury, our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
