How Do Dangerous Drug & Faulty Medical Device Injury Claims Happen?
Greed is the culprit in most defective medical device and dangerous drug injury claims. Almost always, the company who has the first FDA approval has a certain amount of time in which only they can manufacture a drug or medical device. It is only a matter of time before the market becomes more competitive so they fudge numbers, are not forthright with the true dangers of the drug or device, or feel that the drug or device will make them so much money that they can settle the cases out of court and still come out ahead. For all the good that modern medicine does the human race, the humans that run the companies do the human race a great disservice.
In the case of the chemotherapy medication drug Taxotere, the pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Aventis knew the possible side effects but neglected to warn patients or give them the option of choosing another chemotherapy regimen. The drug manufacturer is now facing lawsuits for fraud, intentionally withholding information from the public, and the misrepresentation of their product. In the case of Taxotere, there is an equally effective drug called Taxol that does not carry the possible side effect of permanent hair loss. Again, greed and profits and the primary concerns of drug companies and the reasons for your injuries.
This is where our experienced team comes in. We fight relentlessly for the rights of the injury victims who were not in the best of health to begin with. We will make the drug companies and medical device companies accountable for their actions and the harm they have caused you and your family.
Benefits Awarded in Dangerous Drug & Medical Device Lawsuits

- Lost wages, including both current and future
- Survival benefits (not applicable in all states)

- Loss of parental guidance (if applicable)
- Loss of companionship
- Punitive damages (if applicable)
- Death and funeral cost (if someone lost their life due to the drug or medical device)
- Medical expenses, including both current and future
Let Our Mass Tort Attorney Help You
Mass tort injury claims differ from other injury cases, such as auto accidents. In a car accident claim, you will be approached by the liable party’s insurance carrier soon after the accident. You may still be in the hospital or at home recuperating when they begin to hound you about settling for a quick and easy lump sum settlement. In a mass tort claim, this does not happen. The drug company or medical equipment company will never approach you regarding their part in your injury, nor will they offer you any money to keep you quiet and settle your claim.
You will need to go after them — Vaughan Legal Trial Team can help. We possess a wealth of experience with going after (and winning against) large, conglomerate pharmaceutical companies. Not all attorneys can make that claim.
Please do not hesitate to contact to contact us to discuss your case. We offer free consults and charge no fees if we do not recover compensation for you and your family.
