Medications and medical devices safe millions of lives each year. But some medications and medical devices can inflict substantial injuries and can even result in death. Thousands have fallen victim to these bad drugs. Bad drugs range from birth control pills like Yas, Yasmin, and Beyaz, testosterone treatments, Risperdal, Xarelto, and more. These medications come with potentially dangerous side effects and, in some cases, the side effects were either minimized or not mentioned at all. Consumers and physicians, therefore, prescribed these medications not knowing that dangerous side effects could occur. Birth control pills Yas, Yasmin, and Beyaz have been linked to blood clots, pulmonary embolism, heart attacks, strokes, and even death. If you or a loved one were injured by a medication, contact the Ochs Law Firm today to determine if you can seek compensation in your case.
Dangerous medical devices, like transvaginal mesh implants and artificial hip joints, can also cause problems for consumers. Transvaginal mesh often requires numerous painful revision surgeries due to side effects like severe pain, bleeding, infections, and the erosion of the mesh through tissues and even organs. Many women who underwent transvaginal mesh surgery regret the decision and wish they had been warned about the potential side effects. Physicians, too, wish they had known that such problems could occur so that they could warn their patients. Often, manufacturers know of the problems and do not immediately notify consumers or medical personnel. If you have been injured by a dangerous medical device, the experienced team at Ochs Law Firm may be able to get compensation in your case.
