If you were injured by a drug or medical device, you need to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. You have only two years from the date of the injuries to file your suit in California.

Your Legal Rights in Drug and Medical Device Injuries
When a drug or medical device causes you injury, there are a number of factors at work. These products may have been defectively manufactured from an error in the production process. A drug or medical device manufacturer has a responsibility to you to ensure its products are properly produced so they will not cause you harm. When they are defective, you have rights under the law in California for compensation for your injuries.
These same manufacturers have a duty to warn you of the dangers and complications of using their products, and when they fail to do so, they are negligent. There are also instances when a drug or medical device is designed unsafely and causes harm. These manufacturers are at fault for causing you injury and need to pay for the pain and suffering you endured. You have a right to medical expenses, lost wages and in some cases, punitive damages for your injuries and the lawyers at KM can help you win your case.
