Hundreds of new drugs and medical products are approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States every year. In turn, they are utilized by thousands of patients suffering from a variety of ailments or medical issues. Sometimes, a drug or medical product is released to the public, and it is later found to be dangerous or defective, thus causing serious injuries… even death in some cases.
While many drugs have dangerous side effects, others have the potential to cause much more serious, long-term personal injury. Although the FDA plays a regulatory role in approving and monitoring their safety after approval of a drug, the manufacturer is ultimately liable for any injuries resulting from their medications… and they MUST be held accountable!
The Mass Torts Legal team at Amerio Law Firm works to protect people from further harm caused by these dangerous drugs by holding manufacturers accountable. Most of the time, many people are affected by a drug or medical product recall. In these situations, those affected are allowed to participate in large-scale lawsuits known as "mass torts". Mass tort claims are filed to obtain compensation for groups of people or organizations that have been injured or harmed by a common act of negligence, and are often associated with dangerous drugs.
