Injured By Defective Pharmaceutical Drugs
Fighting For Your Right To Recover Damages When Drugs Harm Rather Than Heal
When you’re sick, you probably go to your physician, and in many cases, you may be prescribed medicine to treat your illness. You have a right to trust that the pharmaceutical drug you were given is safe and effective when taken correctly and with knowledge of known side effects. But what happens when that drug not only doesn’t help you but actually harms you? What recourse do you have?
At Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, P.A., our Jacksonville personal injury attorneys have extensive experience handling drug-related products liability claims for our clients. We’re not afraid to tackle the legal teams that big pharmaceutical companies employ; our firm is up to the task and welcomes the opportunity to right the wrongs done to you through defective drugs that you had every reason to believe were safe. If you or a member of your family has been injured by a defective pharmaceutical drug, we are prepared to fight in the boardroom or the courtroom to prove negligence on the part of the drug company and win damages to adequately compensate you.
Filing Claims Against A Variety Of Negligent Parties
Depending on the particular circumstances of your case, drug-related products liability claims can be made on the basis of:
- Defects in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical drugs—These defects may stem from errors in formulation, tainting in the manufacturing process, or improper storage that affected the drug’s potency.
- Dangerous side effects of pharmaceutical drugs even when no manufacturing defect occurs—These often involve drugs on the market for a long time whose dangerous side effects are not revealed.
- Improperly marketed pharmaceutical drugs—These may include inadequate warnings about possible dangerous side effects or inadequate instructions and labeling about proper dosage, storage and use.
So, depending on your situation, your defective drug lawsuit may involve a number of claims. At your free initial consultation with us, we take the time to thoroughly evaluate your case, to decide whether enough evidence exists to establish the cause of your injury, determine which party or parties are liable for that injury, and determine the full extent of your injury so that we know how much compensation to pursue. When needed, we call upon investigative and medical resources to assist us in proving your claim. Drugs are a wonderful medicine when safely manufactured, thoroughly tested, and properly labeled. When they’re not and you become injured, we are ready to help you hold the negligent parties accountable.
