Drug & Medical Device Litigation
Litigation involving dangerous prescription drugs and defective medical devices has exploded in recent years. Although drugs and medical devices are regulated by the government, there have been numerous examples of devices that have been approved for use but are nevertheless unsafe, often life-threatening. Fisher, Boyd, Johnson & Huguenard, LLP represents patients harmed by defective and dangerous drugs and medical devices, and is actively investigating other potential lawsuits.
