Prescription drugs and medical devices can be wonderful things that make all of our lives better; however, sometimes the manufacturer of one of these drugs or devices produces something that they know, or should know, could harm people. When we buy a product, take a prescribed medication or have a medical device implanted in our body, we have a right to expect that the product will be reasonably safe. Unfortunately, thousands of people die or suffer serious injuries because a large company put profits ahead of safety, that’s when you need to hire effective Jackson Mississippi Defective Products & Drugs Attorneys.
If you or a family member has been injured by a dangerous product, call our office (601-300-3333). Our dedicated staff will work closely with you to get the full compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other losses. We offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions.
If you have been injured as the result of taking a prescribed drug, or after being injured by a defective product, be sure to do these three things first:
Before doing anything else, make sure that you get checked out by your doctor. Tell him/her exactly what medication(s) you were taking and for how long.
If you still have your prescription and/or the defective drugs or device, be sure to take pictures of everything, and keep them in a safe place where they can’t harm others.
We need to begin the investigation process immediately while everything is fresh on the memory of you and your family.
Protecting Consumers From Dangerous Products In Mississippi

Examples of dangerous or defective products include:
- Knee or Hip Replacements That Fail Prematurely
- Transvaginal Mesh
- Prescription Drugs Such as Actos, Byetta, Actonel, Boniva, Reclast, Accutane, Reglan, Yaz or Yasmin, Vioxx, Meridia and Crestor
