Many prescription drugs are recalled from the market by the FDA or additional warnings are put on them because the drug maker failed to properly test the drug before placing it on the market.

Sometimes the unthinkable can occur and an infant is born with medical issues, mistakes have been made in the operating room, there has been an incorrect diagnosis of a medical condition, or failure on the part of the health care workers to carry out a doctor's order in a timely fashion can leave the patient with a lifetime of physical problems; or worse, lead to the death of that individual. It is important to know if the injuries were preventable and caused by the carelessness of a healthcare provider.
Product Defects & Liability
The term "Product Liability" refers to the liability attached to a seller of any defective product that causes personal injury, be it to the purchaser, user or sometimes an innocent bystander. Defendants in product liability cases may include manufacturers, distributors, retail stores and trade associations. Individuals who have been injured as the result of a defective product have the right to be compensated for their injuries.
