North Carolina Drug & Medical Product Liability
Injured by a defective drug or medical product? We may be able to help!
Manufacturers of prescription drugs and medical products are held to very strict standards when it comes to testing their products before distribution. These standards are necessary because, if the products prove to be defective, recipients of these drugs and medical devices can suffer severe illness, injury, or even death. Prescription drugs can only be obtained with a valid prescription because they contain substances that can be harmful when abused or when used improperly. Defective medical products can break or malfunction, causing injury instead of intended improvement.
