Drug and Medical Device Litigation

Prescription drugs and medical devices can provide a great benefit to the public.  But when drug and device manufacturers rush products to market, cut corners, and fail to disclose known risks and potentially lethal side effects from their products, the manufactures can be liable for damages caused by their medical products.  Gallagher & Kennedy attorneys have represented hundreds of clients in lawsuits against major pharmaceutical and medical device companies over defective name brand and experimental drugs, along with medical devices such as inferior vena cava blood filters, transvaginal mesh, hernia mesh, pain pumps, and defective hip replacement appliances, among others.
