Harmful Prescription Drugs & Faulty Medical Devices

When you or your loved one seeks medical care you are understandably under the expectation that your injuries or illnesses will improve. As patients, we must put trust into the doctors and pharmaceutical companies to provide the care we need.

But when injuries, illnesses or death are caused by a faulty medical device, like a bad hip replacement, someone should have to accept responsibility for those injuries. You should not have to pay for your injuries, on top of the pain and suffering you’ve already endured.

The medical malpractice attorneys at SMT Legal understand the deep pain and suffering that being prescribed dangerous medication or a malfunctioning medical device can cause.

We are here to help answer your questions and help you decide whether to file a medical malpractice claim against a medical professional, hospital, pharmaceutical company or medical device manufacturer.

We can help you understand your patient rights and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. All case evaluations are free and we do not collect any fees unless we win your case.


We don’t get paid unless you get paid.

Defective Prescription Drug Injuries

The pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that profits off of treating people with the prescription drugs they manufacture. Unfortunately in their “profit before people” approach, they often push their drugs to the public before testing them properly or do not adequately warn people of the dangers of taking the drug. If these drugs are defective or harmful the injuries and illnesses that follow can be devastating and even fatal.

When an injury occurs from the administration of a harmful prescription drug, the pain and suffering incurred, lost time at work and other damages are very stressful. If your loved one has wrongfully died due to prescription medication, the suffering and mourning can be equally painful.

Having aggressive and compassionate attorneys to fight for the compensation you deserve will help alleviate some of that stress and enable you to move forward with your life while the attorney pursues damages for you or your lost loved one’s injuries.

    Defective Medical Device Injuries

    Makers of medical devices have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe and reliable and will not cause harm to patients. However, manufacturers are often found guilty of “profit over people” and allow faulty medical devices to be distributed without adequate testing for defects or issuing appropriate warnings. Manufacturers may also be found guilty of deceptive marketing.

    If you feel that you have been injured or if your loved one suffered injuries or wrongful death due to a defective medical device, you may have cause for filing a product liability claim, medical malpractice claim or class action lawsuit.

    Our attorneys can help answer your questions and determine the best option for your individual circumstances – contact us today for a free case evaluation. We do not accept any fees unless we win your case.
