Protecting Victims Of Pharmaceutical Liability

People can be harmed by negligence involving medications in two ways. The first is to be given the wrong drug, either because a doctor was negligent in prescribing it or a pharmacist or nurse made an error that led to you taking a drug that wasn't safe. The second is when the makers of a drug injure you by unleashing an unsafe product onto the market. Pharmaceutical liability generally refers to lawsuits against drug manufacturers.

Dangerous Drugs

Some drugs are unsafe for use by anyone. If you took a drug that had an unlisted or unknown side effect, you are paying the price for a drugmaker's irresponsibility. If you took a drug that was contaminated, the maker or some other party responsible for handling, transporting or administering the drug may be at fault. As the victim of a dangerous drug, you deserve an experienced and highly skilled attorney on your side.

We can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Off-Label Uses And Illegal Acts By Drug Manufacturers

Doctors have a qualified right to prescribe drugs for medical conditions other than those the drug was designed to treat. Such "off-label" uses are allowed, but drug manufacturers cannot legally advertise them. In some cases, drugmakers engage in illegal practices to encourage the use of their products in ways not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Drugmakers are also sometimes guilty of leaving important safety information out of warning labels. Victims don't learn of the negative side effects until they experience them. Pharmaceutical liability lawsuits can help hold these companies responsible for the harm they do.
