Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices in California
As California consumers we assume that pharmaceutical manufactures are dedicated to developing new, safe medicines to prevent and treat the world’s most serious diseases. Unfortunately, that is not always true, and patient health and safety is not always the primary concern. Many times drugs and devices are rushed to market because of the promise of big profits. All too often, potential sales drive decisions regarding drug and medical device development, testing and labeling. When a pharmaceutical company fails to adequately test a drug or medical device, or designs a drug or device that is dangerous, serious injury or death can occur.
