DEFECTIVE DRUGS & MEDICAL DEVICES
Thousands of people across the United States are injured every year because of a defective drug or medical device. Pharmaceutical manufacturers have a financial incentive to push new drugs and medical equipment to market before they fully understand the associated side effects and dangers.
The FDA relies upon manufacturer reports of the safety and reliability of a drug or device and FDA approval does not mean a drug is safe. Brandi lawyers scrutinize the evidence to hold manufacturers accountable when they place profit over safety.
Brandi attorneys have repeatedly been court appointed to leadership committees for nationwide drug and device lawsuits because of our experience and commitment to our clients that any damages they suffer are compensated.
