How Do Dangerous Chemical, Drug and Faulty Medical Device Injury Claims Happen

Greed is the culprit in most defective medical device and dangerous drug injury claims. Almost always the company who has first F.D.A. approval has a certain amount of time in which only they can manufacture that drug or medical device. It is only a matter of time before the market become smote competitive and they no longer have a stranglehold on the market so they fudge numbers, are not forthright with the true dangers of the drug or device or feel that the drug or device will make them so much money that they can settle the cases out of court and still come out ahead. For all of the good that modern medicine does the human races the humans that run the companies do the human race a great disservice.

In some mass tort, dangerous drug and defective medical product cases, such as the chemotherapy medication drug Taxotere, the pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Aventis knew the possible side effects but neglected to warn patients or give them the option of choosing another chemotherapy regimen. The drug manufacturer is now facing lawsuits for fraud, intentionally withholding information from the public and misrepresentation of their product. In the case of Taxotere, there is an equally effective drug called Taxol that does not carry with it the possibility of permanent hair loss. Again, greed and profits and the primary concerns of drug companies and the reasons for your injuries.

In the case of Roundup weedkiller cancer claims the manufacturer launched the product decades ago with no warning label alerting users to the fact that the active ingredient glyphosate is a potential carcinogen. Over the past couple of years since several huge verdicts have been awarded to those who have developed cancer due to Roundup there have been almost 20,000 Roundup lawsuits filed against Monsanto, the manufacturer.
