Drug Injuries & Defective Medical Device Litigation

In recent years, there has been a substantial increase in lawsuits regarding dangerous drugs and defective medical devices. While government agencies exist to regulate medications and medical devices, the approval process can be less than thorough and even circumvented by clever manufacturers, resulting in dangerous or life-threatening products reaching the market.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed by a dangerous drug or defective medical device, you have a right to seek compensation for all of your damages. The experienced product liability lawyers at The Hornbuckle Firm have represented victims of pharmaceutical and medical company negligence, and are prepared to take your case and fight for the justice you are due.

Our Attorneys

Dangerous Drugs

Many prescription medications have been found to have serious or life-threatening side-effects. Legal action is commonly brought against the manufacturers of medications such as:

  • Acne medications – Accutane
  • Antidepressants – Zoloft, Prozac, and Effexor
  • Anti-seizure medications – Mirapex, Dostienx, and Topamax
  • Birth control – Yaz, NuvaRing, and Ortho Evera Patch
  • Diabetes medications – Actos, Avandia, and Januvia
  • Heart medications – Plavix and Pradaxa
  • Migraine medications – Depakote

Far from an exhaustive list, these drugs are simply some of the most easily recognizable. Many of these and other dangerous medications have been aggressively marketed despite their adverse side-effects, and very few of them have been recalled. If you or a loved one has taken any medication that resulted in injury, you deserve justice. Our drug injury attorneys can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Defective Medical Devices

Defective medical devices may be part of an entire product line, but may also be exclusive to your device. Manufacturing defects are known to impact only a few devices, even when the product has a history of safe use. However, in other instances, proper testing has been bypassed because a product was similar to others currently on the market. This has, time and again, resulted in significant injuries caused by defective medical devices including:

  • Biomet hip implants
  • DePuy ASR hip implants
  • Synex II Vertebral
  • Transvaginal mesh
  • Vena Cava Filters
  • Zimmer Durom Hip

The attorneys at the Hornbuckle Firm can investigate your case, establish liability, and fight to get you maximum compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and related damages
