Pharmaceutical liability cases can be complex - Our attorneys are ready to obtain the maximum compensation for clients
Drug manufacturers are responsible for the effectiveness of their medications and for properly warning the consumer about any potential side effects or hazards. If you have been injured by medical complications or undisclosed side effects from prescription medication, you may be entitled to compensation. You need an experienced attorney who can advise you about your rights to recover for your losses. Contact the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein today. Call 1-866-275-4563.
In some cases, the drug manufacturer may not have made the mistake that caused your injury. A patient's injury from medication might be the result of a pharmacy error. A pharmacist may have given you the wrong medication or wrong dosage. In another case, the medication may have been administered negligently in a hospital or doctor's office.
Pharmaceutical liability is an area of law that takes tremendous resources and relentless will to battle the manufacturers and their teams of attorneys. Turn to attorneys who are not intimidated by big drug companies. The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein is ready to provide a free and confidential consultation.
Pharmaceutical injuries may have severe consequences
Dangerous drugs can lead to serious health conditions, significant injury, and even death. Some recent examples of pharmaceutical liability cases include:
- Amylin and Eli Lilly, manufacturers of Byetta, a drug for diabetes, sued after patients died of severe pancreatitis while taking it.
- Merck, manufacturer of Vioxx, a pain medication, found liable for heart attacks suffered by patients using the drug.
- Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, maker of Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills, faces lawsuits after the drug has been linked to potentially fatal blood clots or gallbladder disease.
- Roche Holding, manufacturer of the acne medication Accutane, was ordered to pay $25.16 million in February 2009 to a former Accutane user who said his use of the medication caused him to develop inflammatory bowel disease, a severe bowel disorder.
- GlaxoSmithKline, manufacturer of the diabetes drug Avandia, faces a class-action shareholder lawsuit over claims that the company failed to disclose a heart-attack risk linked to the drug. Avandia also is linked to a risk of bone fractures among patients taking the medication.
