Being Informed of Dangerous Medical Products and Devices

January 9, 2016

Many times, the FDA approves a product and it is released to the public before any adverse effects are existent. All too often, adverse side effects do not become apparent until several years after the products’ release. In many cases, the manufacturer is liable. In some instances, companies reevaluate and recall their dangerous products at a later time. This typically occurs after discovering initial research was inadequate to uncover relevant risks about the drug or medical device. It also occurs after patients suffer injury and send adverse event reports to the FDA.

That is why Indiana law allows for suit to be brought 2 years after the discovery of the injury for suit to be brought in some cases or 10 years after the product was produced. If you think that you have been a victim of a faulty medical device or drug, please contact an attorney.
