Dangerous Drugs

If you have been injured by a prescription drug, or an over the counter drug, you need an attorney who has handled these types of cases before to represent you, and you need an attorney who has a demonstrated track record of excellence in the area of dangerous drug litigation. Attorneys who handle product liability cases arising out of the use of dangerous drugs have the skills, financial resources, access to recognized experts, technological tools and data at their disposal to help those who have been injured by prescription drugs on the marketplace.

When you fill a prescription, you have every right to expect that the drugs you have purchased will be safe, and that they will function for their intended purposes in accordance with the warnings provided by the pharmaceutical manufacturer. Yet, the pharmaceutical companies often take shortcuts during the FDA approval process, shortcuts which are made possible by relaxed standards by the federal Food and Drug Administration. Indeed, in some cases, the pharmaceutical companies are permitted to conduct their own safety test, which presents an obvious potential conflict of interest. Not surprisingly, the profit motive often prevails and thus dangerous drugs enter the marketplace because the anticipated profit outweighs the potential cost of litigation. In addition, medications are often left on the market, and are not recalled, under many have already suffered serious injuries.

Whatever the cause, it is readily apparent that dangerous drugs have entered the marketplace notwithstanding FDA approval. The following drugs have been the subject of litigation, for example:

  • Avandia
  • Fosomax
  • Plavix
  • Lipitor
  • Ortho Evra Patch
  • Vioxx
  • Celebrex
  • Bextra
  • Fen-Phen
  • Redux
  • Zyprexa

Any number of injuries may result from the use of unsafe pharmaceuticals, including but not limited to:

  • liver disease
  • cancer
  • heart attacks
  • strokes
  • birth abnormalities
  • high blood pressure
  • amnesia
  • memory loss
