People have come to expect certain risks and side effects when it comes to prescription medicines. That doesn’t give pharmaceutical companies a free pass, however.
From research and testing to manufacturing and marketing, the companies that sell us medications have a duty to inform us of the potential injuries associated with the product.
If you have been hurt by a medication and were not warned about the dangers, you need to recognize that you are a victim. The drug companies can be held liable for failing to protect you and selling defective medicine.
Types of Defective Drug Lawsuits
In some cases, drugs are taken off the market only after the damage has been inflicted. In other defective drug cases, drug companies continue to aggressively market drugs for various illnesses while failing to properly warn doctors and the public about potential drug problems.
We have handled drug liability cases for a variety of medications:
- Antidepressants such as Paxil, Effexor, Zoloft
- Diabetes drugs such as Avandia
- Birth control such as Yaz, NuvaRing, Ortho Evra and others
