Drug and Medical Device Injury Lawyers

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, the United States is the largest medical device market in the world. By 2023, sales on medical devices are expected to grow to $28 billion. At the same time, 4.7 billion prescriptions are written in the U.S. every year.

Unfortunately, these drugs and devices are not always safe for the public. Since the pharmaceutical industry has demonstrated that it is more interested in turning a profit than helping people, as shown in the current opioid crisis, hundreds of people are injured each year because of these unsafe products. If an individual receives an injury by a malfunctioning medical device or a dangerous drug, he/she may be eligible for compensation.

At Fellerman & Ciarimboli, our Philadelphia drug and medical device injury lawyers have been helping victims throughout Pennsylvania with their lawsuits against Big Pharma. We will stand up for our clients’ rights both in and out of the courtroom and make sure they receive compensation for their injuries.

The Problem With Drug and Medical Devices

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), an estimated 7,000 deaths occur each year because of adverse drug reactions, and approximately 6.7 percent of hospitalized patients have a severe drug reaction with a fatality rate of 0.32 percent.

The dangers of medical devices are just as severe. According to this Associated Press (AP) article, there have been approximately 1.7 million injuries and nearly 83,000 deaths reported to the FDA between 2008 and 2018.

Let Us Review Your Case

Take the first step to the justice you deserve today.

  • Hernia Mesh Implants: The FDA states that more than 1 million hernia repairs are performed in the U.S. each year. Although it is meant to strengthen weakened tissue, the device may be rejected by the body. If it's rejected, it can break off, damaging other organs and tissue in the patient's abdomen or groin.
  • Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Implants: Although hip replacements can lead to less pain and better mobility, using metal hip replacement implants can lead to complications down the road. One such complication is metallosis – a type of poisoning caused by metallic debris from the implant. The debris increases the levels of metal in your system, causing severe complications.
  • Gynecological Mesh Implants: Transvaginal mesh implants are meant to strengthen and repair the pelvic muscles. However, a recent "60 Minutes" report showed the plastic used in some of the gynecological meshes is unsafe to use in the human body.
  • Onglyza Drugs: Onglyza (saxagliptin) regulates the levels of insulin in your body after a meal and has been used as part of a treatment program for Type 2 diabetes. However, a post-marketing study has found that out of randomly chosen patients, 27 percent of those taking the medication were more likely to be hospitalized for heart failure.
