Attorney Stephen A. Katz represents victims of dangerous drugs and dangerous medical devices.
A pharmaceutical drug or medical device, though intended to help the user, can cause injury. And the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s approving the product does not guarantee that it is safe. Bladder cancer, congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease, bone fractures, suicidal thoughts, and other injuries have been linked to drugs that the FDA pronounced safe. And medical devices such as FDA-approved hip and knee implants, have left metal shavings in users’ bodies, leading to elevated cobalt and chromium blood levels, hip-joint cysts, fluid buildup, and tissue or bone damage. Drugs and medical devices can be hazardous, in other words, in unforeseen ways.
