It seems as though within a few years, and in some cases a few decades, what was previously seen as a very effective medication for common ailments can overnight be vilified for causing diseases such as cancer, birth defects, bone injuries and increasing the risk of cardiac events in patients taking the medication. A common concern is how or why the drug was approved by the FDA to begin with? As with all big businesses marketshare and profit are what is important. In many cases manufacturers of medical devices such as DaVinci Surgical Robots, Allergan breast implants, IVC filters, hip implants, knee implants, hernia mesh and trans-vaginal meshes do not disclose the potential for injury or illness to the FDA. And shame on the FDA for not thinking outside the box and demanding thorough research and testing be done prior to approval.

Defendants In Medical Device Injury Lawsuits

Further, there is also some overlap with commonly sued pharmaceutical manufacturers for harmful medications. Examples of medical device manufacturers who are currently being litigated against are:
- Johnson & Johnson
- General Electric
