Defective and Dangerous Medication Lawsuits

Drug manufacturers have a duty to make sure that medications they sell are not unreasonably dangerous and contain sufficient warnings about dangerous side effects so that physicians and patients can evaluate the risks and benefits before taking the medication. In many cases pharmaceutical companies fail to take simple steps to protect consumers when they place profits before people’s safety.

Side effect lawsuits are investigated nationwide for users of the following medications who suffered an injury. To review a potential case for yourself, a friend or family member, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
