The majority of adults in the US are currently taking at least one prescription medication, or employ the use of a medical device. As such, consumers have grown to trust pharmaceutical manufacturers. However, new research and testing reveals more harmful and defective drugs and devices every year, and in turn a new group of people becomes susceptible to harmful side effects. We understand that this can be a terrifying process to go through, which is why we fight hard to get you the compensation you need, and the care you deserve.
Before medications and medical devices are distributed to the public, they must go through years of testing and review from health agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is an extensive, multi-year process that, for the most part, does a good job of pinpointing potential problems.
However, issues inevitably arise, and when agencies such as the FDA receive enough complaints about a certain drug or device, they can issue a recall. Most defective drug and device cases involve either an adverse side effect that was not listed, or a product that was simply defective and didn’t perform as it should have.
When victims are adversely affected by a side effect that was unintended or ignored, they are eligible to bring forth a claim against the drug or device manufacturer. Claims can be filed under a personal injury, product liability, or wrongful death basis.

Elements of a Defective Drug or Device Case
Each drug or device is defective in its own way, but the elements of the cases are the same. Potential clients should consider amassing the following materials prior to beginning their claim:
- Proof of use: Regardless of which drug or device is involved, victims should acquire proof of use, whether through prior prescriptions or surgical paperwork.
- Unintended diagnosis: Next, there should be proof of a diagnosed side effect that is unintended, such as a form of cancer or removal surgery to correct internal issues.
- Plausible link: Lastly, a plausible correlation between the defective drug or device and the victim’s subsequent injuries or diagnoses should be presented. This can be done through a combination of testimony and a review of the victim’s prior medical history.
If you or a loved one are the victim of a defective drug or medical device, consider compiling the aforementioned information. Then, contact the experienced team of Las Vegas defective drug and device attorneys at Van Law Firm.
