Defective Drug and Medical Device Induced Organ Damage
Dangerous prescription drugs and defective medical devices may cause serious organ damage. They may cause a wide spectrum of damage to various organs in the body, including the liver, kidneys, stomach, brain, lungs and heart. Because the body cannot run properly when one or more of these organs is damaged and is not working correctly, immediate medical treatment will typically be required. Organ damage may be life-threatening and surgery to repair or replace the damaged organ may be necessary. If the organ cannot be salvaged or a transplant is not available or possible, the patient may lose his or her life.
