Have You Suffered Injuries Because of a Harmful or Defective Drug or Medical Device? Call Van Law Firm Today
A large percentage of Nevadans take at least one regularly-prescribed medication or currently use at least one medical device. Over the years, we’ve increasingly relied on the expectation that the drugs and products we buy and consume have been thoroughly tested and reviewed. Unfortunately, that assumption is routinely proven wrong, as more product liability and wrongful death claims are continuously being filed. Suffering injuries and damages due to the negligence of medical and pharmaceutical manufacturers can be an extremely frightening and violating experience, but luckily, top-tier representation is right around the corner.
The Summerlin defective drug and medical device attorneys from Van Law Firm have worked hard to defend victims’ rights for nearly ten years, and with a certified 5-star rating across all platforms, our dedication is always on display. Call (725) 900-9000 to experience the VLF standard today.
How and Why Do Defective Drugs and Devices Reach Consumers?
In order for drugs and medical devices to be approved for public use and consumption, they have to undergo extensive testing and research, usually for multiple years. This is done primarily through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which does a good job at identifying and rejecting problematic goods for the most part.
Unfortunately, no selection process is perfect, and harmful products and drugs are routinely brought to light. There are numerous reasons as to why a product may be considered to be harmful or defective, including: false or misleading advertising or warning labels, defective design features, negligent manufacturing processes, or inadequate storage or distribution systems. When the FDA receives a large amount of complaints regarding a certain product, they will conduct an investigation, and if there is sufficient evidence that the product causes harm, the agency can issue a formal recall.
When patients and consumers suffer injuries from products that are known to be harmful or defective, they have the right to proceed with a personal injury or product liability claim against the manufacturer of the product in question. If there was a fatality involved, a wrongful death claim may also be applicable.

What Constitutes a Strong Defective Drug or Medical Device Claim in Nevada?
Drugs and devices will have varying defects, but the claims will follow the same framework. All potential Summerlin claimants should begin compiling certain documents to help facilitate the claim process, including:
Documented product/drug use: In order to file a product liability claim against a manufacturer, you must first be able to verify that you used the product or drug in question. This is typically done through bills, receipts, surgical or prescription paperwork, or other medical records.
Verification of unintended complications: The next element you will need to prove is that the product did in fact cause unintended side effects or conditions, and this is done either through testimony or a review of medical records. These complications can range from mild symptoms all the way up to serious conditions like cancer or even death.
Reasonable correlation: Finally, there must be sufficient evidence that a link exists between the product in question and the victim’s injuries or complications. In other words, can you prove that your injuries directly resulted from using the product or drug? This is also usually done through a review of prior records.
