FDA Recalls


FDA recall victims can count on the attorneys at Wormington & Bollinger to secure justice for those affected by unsafe products.

Even though medical devices can be helpful for a variety of health conditions, the use of many of these things can come at a cost: side effects and even death. If a patient receives a medical device, then they should always know the possible side effects to determine how it could impact their health.

At Wormington & Bollinger, we’ve seen many cases where clients experienced a prescription medication or product recall injury. Even though these manufacturers try to prevent these injuries, there are times when faulty medical devices result in accidents that could have been prevented. If you or a loved one is a victim, then it might be time to consider a defective device lawsuit.

FDA: Protecting the Public from Safety Issues

The Food and Drug Administration holds the responsibility for protecting public health. The goal is to ensure that medical products, including devices and medications, are safe for general use. This federal agency also regulates other products that are sold in our country, including cosmetics, supplements, food, and more.

Before regulated products can be sold in the US, the FDA must give approval based on the safety of the product. If it is discovered that products on the market are causing safety concerns, then the FDA can recall these products so they are no longer sold. The FDA’s oversight of many things that are sold in the United States ensures that the products are safe for consumer use.

Product Recalls: What you need to know

There are several ways that a product recall might happen. First, a product manufacturer might discover the safety concerns and choose to recall these products without FDA intervention. Sometimes, the product recall is exchanged with a safer version of the product. Other times, the company offers a refund to their customers. 

Another way that product recalls can happen is if the FDA initiates court action to take harmful products off the market. The company must comply with the FDA recall, especially because of the safety and liability concerns that have been made public. 

These recalls have many implications for customers and patients using the devices. For example, if it’s known that a specific medical device can cause serious injury, then each patient must be notified to stop using the device as soon as possible. Individuals injured by these devices can have long-lasting damage that hinders their lifestyles and health.

Legal Recourse for FDA Recalls

If you or a loved one have been injured by a recalled product, do you have any legal recourse? Hiring an FDA recall attorney is the best thing you can do because you will have an advocate to fight for your legal rights and seek potential compensation. 

Not only can an FDA recall attorney help build your defective device lawsuit, but you also need a legal expert who can take the appropriate steps to recall dangerous products that are still on the market. Individuals don’t know how to respond to FDA recalls appropriately, which is why it makes sense to hire legal help. 

If you are thinking about hiring an attorney to help with your product recall case, then make sure you choose a team with related experience. Working with an attorney who has successfully negotiated other similar cases is the best way to increase the likelihood that you will have a positive outcome for your own lawsuit.
