When you are injured by a poorly designed or poorly made product, or by a product that should have carried a warning label, you may benefit from the services of a defective and dangerous products lawyer. 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).
