Personal Injury Attorneys Handling Defective Product And Drug Cases In Prince George's County, Anne Arundel County, Charles County, Baltimore, and in the Maryland, Washington, DC, Metro area


Drugs and manufactured medical products must gain approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to be sold in the U.S. Even if a product is approved for sale, a defect in the product, incomplete labeling, or insufficient warnings can cause severe harm to consumers.

Consumers rely on manufacturers to provide safe and reliable products. If the manufacturer fails to meet accepted standards for quality and safety, their credibility, and level of trust amongst consumers can become questionable.

Frequently Asked Questions: Medical Malpractice

A plaintiff must show that the drug or product that caused injury was defective and that this defect was in fact the inciting cause to harm. There are three general types of drug and product defects that can occur:

  • Manufacturing defects

    A pharmaceutical drug that has been packaged improperly at any point from the factory where it was manufactured to the point you receive the drug at the pharmacy.

  • Design defects

    A pharmaceutical drug that has been on the market but over a period of time is found to have dangerous side effects. If the manufacturer knew of the danger, but deliberately concealed it, you may be entitled to damages.

  • Marketing defects (failure to warn)

    This correlates with the marketing of a pharmaceutical drug. If the pharmaceutical company neglects to mention proper warnings, instructions, or recommendations associated with the drug, you may have an improperly marked pharmaceutical drug claim.
