Defective Drug Lawsuits
If you or a family member suffered injuries from a defective medication or drug, you may qualify to file a lawsuit and receive compensation. Drug companies are responsible for their drugs and need to be held accountable when they cause harm. Our defective drug lawyers can review your case and help you and your family recover the full amount of compensation you are entitled to.
Our defective drug lawyers have vast experience in a broad range of drug-related claims. They represent individuals and families in a number of complex claims involving drug-related injuries such as:
- Drug Interactions: Drug interactions occur when a doctor prescribes a patient with a drug that reacts negatively with another drug that patient is already taking.
- Birth Defects: Birth defects occur when a woman is prescribed a drug during her pregnancy and her baby is born with one or more birth defects. Birth defects include heart complications, lung problems, facial abnormalities and more. Some prescription drugs that are known to increase the risk of birth defects when taken during pregnancy include Topamax®, Depakote®, Zoloft®, Prozac®, Paxil®, Effexor®, Lexapro® and other SSRI antidepressants.
- Heart Attack or Stroke: Some medications have been linked to an increase in the risk of heart attack, stroke and other life threatening cardiac side effects.
- Congestive Heart Failure: Some medications have been found to worsen or cause heart failure in some patients.
- Blood Clots and Pulmonary Embolism: Some medications are known to increase the risk of blood clots and pulmonary embolism, which can be dangerous and life-threatening.
- Wrongful Death: When a patient suffers from a severe drug side effect such as a heart attack or stroke, he or she may be at the risk of death. Our attorneys represent surviving family members of those who died as a result of taking a defective or otherwise harmful medication.
These are just a few examples of the dangerous side effects that some prescription medications can cause. Our network of experienced drug attorneys is available to investigate any number of injuries allegedly caused by prescription and over the counter medications. If you or a loved one has suffered because of a medication, you can turn to us for help. You may be eligible for compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages if your injury prevents you from working, decreased quality of life and pain and suffering. You may also qualify for compensation for damages such as funeral and burial costs, loss of economic and social support and past medical bills in a case involving the wrongful death of a loved one.
