When Medication Causes Life-Changing Side Effects
Every day, people purchase prescription drugs or over-the-counter drugs trusting that those drugs have been properly tested. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. As they attempt to climb to the top of a billion-dollar industry, pharmaceutical manufacturers often take steps to rush their products to market that ultimately put consumers in jeopardy. When they put defective drugs in the hands of consumers and the result is serious injuries or wrongful death, they should be held accountable. We are here to see that they are.
At White & Weddle, P.C., we handle cases involving drugs like fentanyl pain patches, Vioxx and Avandia that have been found to cause life-changing side effects. Our law firm features trial lawyers, which is a critical component in these cases. Drug manufacturers may not be willing to admit that their products are defective, not without a fight in front of a jury. Our record of success against big name opponents in front of a jury is impressive.
Defective Drug Multidistrict Litigation and Class Actions
Where there is one victim of a defective drug, there are typically others. When strategic, we will work with other law firms across the country that may be handling cases involving the drug that harmed our client. This is referred to as multidistrict litigation. In other cases, we may recommend starting or joining a class action, a group lawsuit against a pharmaceutical manufacturer. We will always analyze all available options to determine what is best for you.
