Defective Drugs

Every year, thousands of people die or are seriously injured from adverse reactions to prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The attorneys at our firm have achieved national recognition for the verdicts and settlements they’ve obtained representing injured clients against irresponsible drug manufacturers. We have filed lawsuits against the makers of Fen-Phen, Vioxx, Baycol, Ephedra, Hormone Replacement Therapy and many others.

In this state and most other jurisdictions, drug manufacturers are 100% responsible for the safety of the drugs they make, market and distribute. Drug manufacturers are required to provide clear warnings of the risks their drugs pose to the user. When a drug manufacturer makes an unsafe product (defective drug) or fails to provide adequate warnings, it must pay damages to those it has injured, or to the families of those it has killed.

If you or someone you love has been harmed by a medication or defective drug, it is important that you seek out attorneys who have experience in this area. If the drug is already the subject of a class action or other type of mass tort lawsuit, there will be special procedural rules in place. It is important to have attorneys who are familiar with these special procedures.
