Have you or a loved one been harmed by defective drugs? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
There seem to be pharmaceutical recalls in the news almost every day. Many times the reason for a drug recall is that the pharmaceutical manufacturer did not conduct sufficient testing on the drug before placing it on the market. Pharmaceutical companies are driven by a profit motive and sometimes testing is not comprehensive and thorough enough before the drug is offered for sale to the public. Though many drugs with dangerous side effects are recalled, many others remain on the market today.
A defective drug can be defined broadly as a drug that has resulted in severe adverse side effects upon use, where the severity of the side effects outweighs the intended benefits of the medication. An individual may suffer catastrophic and lifelong injury from a defective drug, and in some cases may even die. If determination is made that a medication is defective, the drug maker may be held liable.

Prescription drugs can have severe side effects and adequate testing and screening is crucial. Placing a drug on the market prematurely can lead to serious health consequences for some users. If the pharmaceutical manufacturer fails to disclose any defects, complications, or side effects of a new drug, this can be considered negligent behavior on their part and in many cases can be grounds for legal action.
As consumers, when we get a prescription from our doctor, we trust that the medication is safe and will heal whatever ails us. However, if the drug has not been adequately tested or if all of the possible side effects have not been disclosed, we can actually be harmed rather than helped. Since 1993 it has been estimated that approximately 1,000 people have died from taking defective drugs as prescribed by their physician. And many more have suffered severe injuries which will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
