Idaho Bad Drug Lawsuits & Idaho Defective Medical Device Cases
There has been a significant rise in the number of Idaho bad drug lawsuits and Idaho defective medical device cases in recent years. This is because victims have suffered serious side effects from dangerous prescription medications or medical devices including hip and knee implants that were manufactured with defective materials.
Prescription medications are known to offer significant benefits to the patient’s ailments including lowering blood pressure, maintaining a healthy beating heart, offering pain relief and treating depression and anxiety. While many drugs provide lifesaving opportunities to patients, nearly every medication has significant side effects. Others are outright bad drugs that were quickly brought to the market by pharmaceutical companies who place profits ahead of consumer safety.
The same focus on profits can be said of medical device manufacturers who create hip and knee implants. Many consumers have suffered metallosis (metal poisoning), life-threatening infections and other conditions months or years after their implant surgery that were caused by defective designs or materials.
Most victims have no other option than to file an Idaho defective medical device lawsuit or Idaho bad drug case against every party who caused them harm. However, these cases tend to be highly complex and require a comprehensive understanding of Idaho tort law. The resource links listed below can help victims begin the process of determining whether the merits of their case are substantial enough for a successful financial outcome either through a negotiated out-of-court settlement or from a judge and jury trial.
