Helping Victims of Dangerous or Defective Drugs

Every day, millions of people rely on medications to treat illnesses and keep medical conditions in check. While most of these medications help make life easier for countless individuals, the sad reality is that sometimes these drugs do far more harm than good.

If you have suffered an injury after taking an over-the-counter drug or prescription medication, the dedicated and experienced attorneys at Keith Silverstein & Associates will fight to get you the compensation you deserve. You should not have to suffer simply because a drug manufacturer decided to put an unsafe and/or defective product on the market. 

Let us help you hold drug makers accountable for their actions ― contact us today.

Dangerous Drug Lawsuits

Because drugs are constantly being tested and studied, sooner or later it will be determined whether a drug’s side effects are dangerous ― or even deadly. When that happens, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the drug maker itself will issue a recall.

Regardless of how quickly the FDA or drug maker recalls a dangerous drug, is almost inevitable that the recall will come too late for some. Victims of dangerous drugs have been known to suffer heart damage, kidney damage, liver damage, increased risk of heart attack and, in some cases, death.

While the list of allegedly dangerous or defective drugs is seemingly endless, those involved in recent legal disputes include:

  • Blood clot and stroke prevention medications, including Xarelto (rivaroxaban), Pradaxa (dabigatran), and Plavix (clopidogrel)
  • Antidepressants, including Paxil (paroxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Prozac (fluoxetine), and Lexapro (escitalopram)
  • Cholesterol medications, including Crestor (rosuvastatin) and Lipitor (atorvastatin)
  • Birth control and other related medications/devices, including NuvaRing, Ortho Evra, Yaz, and Yasmin
  • Low T (testosterone) treatments, including hormone replacement therapies that result in pulmonary embolisms, heart attacks, strokes, or death

One important thing to remember is that just because a drug is FDA approved does not mean it is safe for everyone. In fact, some drugs are on the market for years before the full extent of their side effects is discovered. If you believe you have suffered harm because of a defective or dangerous drug, you need to speak with an attorney right away.
