The Consumer Justice Foundation is dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers who have been harmed by a dangerous pharmaceutical drug or a defective consumer product. Contact our consumer advocates at the Consumer Justice Foundation today if you or a loved one has suffered serious drug- or device-related injuries. 

Here at the Consumer Justice Foundation, our consumer advocates are just regular people like you and me, whose primary goal is to protect the public from the deceptive actions of pharmaceutical drug companies, medical device makers and product manufacturing companies who have their own best interest in mind. Far too often, innocent adults, adolescents, children and the elderly suffer life-altering or fatal injuries from side effects that likely could have been prevented had the proper warnings been provided to the public. Take the Takata exploding airbag problem, for example. Following the recall of millions of defective airbags that were believed to have been accountable for more than 100 injuries and at least six deaths, it was discovered that the Japanese airbag supplier knew about the issue for more than a decade, but failed to warn consumers about the defective auto part.

Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs and Medical Devices

100,000 Americans die every year from the known side effects of prescription drugs, which amounts to 270 medication-related fatalities each day, or one pharmaceutical drug death every five minutes. That’s more than twice the number of people who are killed in auto accidents every day.

The pharmaceutical drug industry is one of the largest and most lucrative industries in the United States, and statistics show that 65% of Americans currently use at least one prescription drug, whether it’s a diabetes drug, an antidepressant medication, a cholesterol-lowering drug or an oral contraceptive. Unfortunately, many of the most widely-used medications in the United States have been tied to devastating side effects like blood clots, diabetes, bladder cancer and even death. In fact, according to a recent report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), prescription drug-related deaths have been steadily increasing over the past two decades, and have now become the leading cause of injury death in the United States.

Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs and Medical Devices

Drug-Related Injuries, Deaths Among Children

Even children are being prescribed potentially dangerous medications now more than ever before, for conditions like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), behavior disorders, and autism, and studies show that, in recent years, sales of medications for children have been the drug industry’s fastest-growing business. The following are some alarming statistics regarding pharmaceutical drug use among children:

Potentially Dangerous Medical Devices

Another major concern for consumers in the United States is the prevalence of potentially defective medical devices that remain on the market, despite research and adverse event reports suggesting that these consumer products are dangerous even in the context in which they are meant to be used. From metal-on-metal hip implants to surgical robots, bone graft products and power morcellators, there are hundreds if not thousands of medical devices currently being used by doctors and hospitals that could potentially put patients at unnecessary risk for permanent injuries, or possibly even death.
