St. Louis Drug & Medical Device Injury Attorneys

Standing Up for Injured Patients Across the Nation

Manufacturers of medical devices and drugs have two primary duties to their customers and prescribers: ensure that their products are safe to use as designed, and ensure that customers are fully informed of the risks associated with their products. When pharmaceutical and medical manufacturers fail to do this, they can incur extensive medical costs and cause lifelong damage to patients.

When the Risks Outweigh the Benefit

Before a drug or device is released to the market, it must be cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, in some cases, devices can be released without testing as long as it is “sufficiently similar” to another product. The FDA must be satisfied that the benefit of the drug or device’s intended user outweighs its risk.

However, due to the enormous profits that many drugs promise to pharmaceutical companies, testing may not be as thorough or stringent as possible. Many of the drugs that have been involved in litigation recently were not extensively tested. For example, Zofran was once marketed to pregnant women—despite never testing its effects on unborn children.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

One of the most important you things you need to know if you’ve been injured in an accident is how much time you have to file a claim. In the state of Missouri, the statute of limitations for filing an injury claim is five years from the date the injury occurred.

In some cases, where the affects of the injury do not reveal themselves right away, the court may allow you to substitute the date of discover for the start of the statute of limitations. This is to give the person filing the claim ample time to pursue compensation no matter the circumstances.
