Tennessee Bad Drug Lawsuits & Tennessee Defective Medical Device Cases

Patients who follow the recommendation of their doctor to use a medical device like a hip implant, or take pharmaceutical medications, expect that the products have been adequately tested. Patients assume the products are safe as long as they are used as intended or that they would have been warned by their doctors or the manufacturers of any potential adverse reaction or side effect. Sadly, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers rush defective products to the market all the time, usually after pressuring the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for a quick approval.

Many of these products are subject to FDA and voluntary recalls, product liability lawsuits and ongoing investigations. However, for many patients, the damage is already done. Because of that, the victims usually have no other choice than to file Tennessee bad drug lawsuits, wrongful death cases, medical malpractice claims and Tennessee bad drug cases.

Initially, the victim will be required to prove they have a valid case for compensation. The links below can assist victims in determining if the statute of limitations for filing a claim has expired.
