Dangerous prescription drugs and defective medical devices account for an unacceptable number of preventable deaths each year. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is tasked with ensuring that prescription and over-the-counter drugs are safe for American consumers. In addition, they conduct safety approvals and clearances for medical devices. Too many times, dangerous drugs and medical devices are approved by the FDA, resulting in irreparable harm.
If you are injured because of a dangerous drug or medical device, you need an aggressive but fair advocate who will hold negligent medical providers accountable for their wrongdoing. You deserve the maximum compensation allowed under Texas law for your injuries.
