Even FDA cleared medical devices can be defective

When it comes to medical devices, patients in Houston may feel secure if they learn that the device is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. However, this security can be misleading. This is because there is a significant difference between a product being FDA cleared and FDA approved.

Dangerous drug litigation can be complex, but not impossible

Manufacturers of prescription medications have a duty to make sure their products have been thoroughly tested so they are safe for consumers. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has testing criteria that drug manufacturers must follow. However, consumers in Houston may be disturbed to hear that even medications that were licensed by the FDA could be defective.

Texans will have more access to information on medical devices

While dangerous medical devices are receiving more attention in the news these days, it can still be difficult for patients in Texas and across the United States to determine whether a medical device they are considering putting in their body is dangerous or has a history of being defective. Americans should be able to depend on the agencies governing medical devices to inform them when a device causes harm. Unfortunately, until recently this has not been the case.
