Each year, pharmaceutical companies and healthcare experts create new medications and medical devices that often improve the lives of the patients who use them. In many cases, these medications and devices provide more of a benefit than risk to patients, and some are even lifesaving. These products are highly regulated by the government, namely the FDA. In most cases, these drugs and devices do as manufacturers designed them to do and carry the risks that manufacturers warn about. However, that isn’t always the case.
Far too often, pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices lead to complications and cause those using them serious injuries. Even worse, many times manufacturers are aware of side effects well before they warn doctors and patients of risks associated with these medical products. When specific drugs or devices cause injuries on a grand scale, multiple lawsuits will emerge, looking to hold these pharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers liable for the damage their products caused.
As you can imagine, these cases are incredibly complex. They often involve multiple parties, large sums of money, witnesses, and complex legal matters. Our New Orleans-based attorneys possess nearly seven decades worth of experience, assisting clients with complex litigation cases involving pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Our attorneys have cultivated a thorough understanding of the healthcare industry and medical laws.
Filing a Pharmaceutical or Medical Device Litigation Lawsuit

- Manufacturing Defects: the drug or medical device’s design is safe, but an issue in the manufacturing process led to the product becoming dangerous to use
- Marketing Defects or Inadequate Warnings: the manufacturers did not provide a proper warning label for all the potential side effects of the product or marketed the product to assist with an issue that it doesn’t, which lead to complications and injuries
