Holding Drug Manufacturers Legally Accountable For Dangerous Drugs And The Harm They Cause
The pharmaceutical industry is a massive and growing economic force. A relatively small number of companies make a substantial percentage of the medications taken in the United States. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), these companies use one-third of their sales revenue on marketing. More and more, the medical field is turning to drugs as the primary treatment option. Releasing the “next big thing” in the pharmaceutical world could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars to the drug maker.
When a drug is defective, the damage can be widespread. Unsafe products injure or kill thousands of people per year. Holding drug companies responsible for this harm is vital to protecting the public. At The Gori Law Firm, our dangerous drug lawyers work hard to get compensation for the victims of defective pharmaceuticals. We have the resources and knowledge to handle complex litigation involving a wide range of potentially dangerous drugs, including, but not limited to:
- The antipsychotic medicine Risperdal, which is used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder
- The diabetes medicine Actos, which has been linked to heart attack, heart failure and other conditions
- The drug Zofran, which is used to prevent nausea and vomiting
- The diabetes drug Victoza
- The dry acid concentrate GranuFlo, which is used during dialysis to clean blood
- Testosterone therapy
Drug Recalls And Drug Litigation
In some cases, a manufacturing defect can make a normally safe drug dangerous for human consumption. Prescription and over-the-counter drugs may be recalled under these circumstances. Not all dangerous drugs are recalled, however. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may discover that a drug has the potential to cause harm and force the drugmaker to include a warning label. The victims of these drugs may still have a right to compensation despite the absence of a recall.
