Dangerous Drug Lawyers

Medicine is supposed to make people feel better, not worse. But sometimes the drugs we’re prescribed come with side effects that the manufacturer didn’t warn us about. Whether it’s an addictive opioid or a drug linked to disease, an inadequately tested, poorly made, or improperly prescribed drug can cause serious damage. 

When that happens, those affected deserve compensation; those responsible need to be held accountable. That’s where we can help. 

If you or a loved one has been harmed by a prescribed drug or other medication, call us for a free consultation. We may be able to help you fight for compensation.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • How Drugs Can Cause Harm

    Patients expect that the drugs they take — whether prescription or over-the-counter — are going to work, and that they won’t face side effects that they weren’t warned about. But sometimes drugs do cause unexpected harm. When they do, it’s often due to a failure in one of these areas:

    • Testing and approval: Drugs need to be extensively tested and studied before they can be approved by government agencies and hit the market. Any mistakes, oversights, or errors in this phase can mean that dangerous risks aren’t discovered or go overlooked. 
    • Manufacturing and distribution: Drug manufacturing must be done with the utmost care, precision, and quality control. If not, drugs can be imprecisely formulated, and that can lead to serious consequences. A lot of drug manufacturing today happens outside the U.S. in countries like India and China, where quality control can be harder to enforce. Drugs must also be properly stored and shipped; if not, dangerous impurities and contamination can occur. 
    • Prescriptions: Even a properly tested and well-made drug can cause harm if prescribed to the wrong person. It is essential that manufacturers issue correct guidance on what patients are to be prescribed a given drug. 
    • Side effects: Nearly every drug carries the risk of adverse side effects. These must be listed and explained clearly. If not, patients may run risks that they would not have accepted had they been informed beforehand. 

    We’ve seen a wide variety of drugs potentially cause harm. The heartburn medication Zantac/Ranitidine, developed dangerous contamination as it sat in storage; the Interstitial Cystitis drug Elmiron causes serious vision damage, a fact that was missed in the testing and approval stage. 

  • Holding Them Accountable

    If a drug does cause harm due to manufacturer/seller error or negligence, the victims deserve compensation. Usually, that’s achieved through a lawsuit. If successful, the victim receives compensation for some or all of the harms they have suffered through either a negotiated settlement or a trial verdict.

    In these cases, victims can expect to receive compensation for some or all of the following: 

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages 
    • Reduced quality of life 
    • Pain and suffering 

    It may seem intimidating to go up against massive pharmaceutical companies, but with the right legal team on your side, justice can be within reach.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
