Defective drugs and medical devices often cause severe injuries

Any licensed manufacturer in Tennessee who makes medical products of any kind is responsible for testing said products, as well as adhering to all federal and state laws that may govern their production before making them available to consumers. Defective drugs and medical devices are often root causes of serious medical injuries, including those that ultimately result in death. Patients and their families have the right to pursue justice against any and all parties identified as possible liable sources when illness or injury has adversely affected them because of a failed product.

In some situations, products are taken off shelves through government recalls when defects are discovered. This may occur before or, sadly, after damages have already been done to others. If the latter is the case, the injured party (or a surviving immediate family member, if the injury was fatal) can file a personal injury lawsuit to seek restitution.

There are typically time limitations regarding the amount of time that may pass between the discovery of a medical injury and the filing of a lawsuit. State laws vary on such matters. It's generally best to research this ahead of time so one is prepared to make informed decisions should a sudden need arise.

Lab workers, physicians, salespeople and manufacturers are subject to liability when it comes to injuries or illnesses caused by faulty products. An experienced personal injury attorney whose practice focuses on medical malpractice and defective drugs and medical devices can clarify Tennessee laws and determine the most viable option available for seeking full recovery of losses in court. Compensation in successfully litigated cases is often used to pay medical expenses, funeral expenses (in worst-case situations) and other costs associated with medical injuries.
