Pharmaceutical companies are experienced at fighting lawsuits. When you need to file a lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company, it’s important to have an attorney experienced in the complexity of pharmaceutical litigation on your side to stand up to these big companies with their virtually unlimited resources.
Despite the many regulations seeking to protect the public from defective and dangerous drugs, many medications slip through the cracks and lead to complications and side effects that can prove lethal for some patients. When a pharmaceutical company harms patients, through failing to warn consumers, improper labeling, inadequate testing, or other actions, they can be held liable for the injuries they caused. If your trust in your medication has been violated and you have been harmed, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
Our current pharmaceutical liability cases include:
Birth Defect Litigation
A number of drugs, including SSRI’s, have been linked to birth defects such as heart defects, lung defects, undeveloped organs, and facial deformities. Many mothers were treated with prescription medications while pregnant, causing damage to their children in utero. If your baby has suffered birth defects that may be caused by prescription medication ingestion during pregnancy, you may qualify to seek legal redress.

Fentanyl is a powerful opioid painkiller. Because of its incredibly addictive nature, it is important for Fentanyl to only be marketed and used as approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, the manufacturers of a fast-acting form of Fentanyl have been marketing it for off label uses, which has exposed thousands of patients to serious risks and even death.

Thousands of patients in the United States rely on a blood pressure medication called Valsartan to help manage their blood pressure. In July 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned the drug could have been contaminated with N-nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA, a probable human carcinogen. After the FDA warning, three companies that sell Valsartan recalled thousands of bottles from the market.
