When you are injured by a poorly designed or poorly made product, or fall ill due to food poisoning or dangerous drugs, you may benefit from the services of a defective and dangerous products lawyer who understands how businesses and insurance companies manage product liability. Many drugs, including the arthritis drug Vioxx and diet aids containing Phenylpropanolamine, are considered dangerous products, as are some medical devices (heart defibrillators) and ordinary appliances (space heaters).
