Kentucky Bad Drug Lawsuits & Kentucky Defective Medical Device Cases

For many Americans, maintaining a healthy lifestyle relies on taking pharmaceutical drugs and using medical devices like joint implants. Unfortunately, the manufacturers of these devices and medicines are often more interested the financial health of their stockholders and less interested in the safety of their products. Consumers using these bad medications and defective medical devices often suffer life altering injuries at the expense of the shareholders’ monetary gains. Because of that, there has been a significant rise in the number of cases involving Kentucky bad drug cases and Kentucky defective medical device lawsuits.

The use of pharmaceutical medications and number of joint implant surgeries have skyrocketed in recent years. However, there has been a significant amount of disturbing information from the Food and Drug Administration that has come to light over improper labeling, inadequate testing and manufacturing medical device products using faulty materials that corrode and fail over time. This is a significant problem because nearly half of every individual living in United States consumed at least one prescription medication over the last month, and many of those took up to five pills or more.

The information below can help you determine the federal and state regulatory bodies in charge of ensuring the effectiveness and safety of the products we use including biological products, medications, and medical devices.
