It’s a sad and potentially deadly situation that happens all the time: A pharmaceutical giant puts a drug on the market, shells out millions in advertising, reaps huge profits, yet neglects the well-being of the people who are consuming the actual drug. People suffer serious and potentially fatal complications, only to find out that the drug company sometimes knew about the problem, but went ahead and cashed in at your expense.
At the Michael Brady Lynch Firm, we’re here to hold these companies responsible and put an end to this terrible cycle of big pharma profits coming before your health.
We have handled cases for major drugs, including:
- Risperdal, Zyprexa, Seroquel and Abilify Linked to Child Diabetes
- Talcum Powder
- Testosterone Therapy
A legal case against a big-time pharmaceutical company can seem like a David vs. Goliath battle, but don’t be afraid. Our attorneys will never back down from a case, no matter how big or formidable the opponent may seem. We know what it takes to build a successful case.
Manufacturers have a duty to test their drugs appropriately. This means meeting Food and Drug Administration criteria to make sure a product is safe before it is released onto the market.
Drug Manufacturer’s Duty to Warn
Pharmaceutical companies must warn you of side effects. Drug companies are not expected to warn you of unknown dangers, but that does not mean they cannot be held liable if such side effects harm you or a loved one.
Manufactures are considered experts in the products they produce. Therefore, they must take all reasonable steps to advise users of potential side effects while providing the public with any new knowledge gained of their product.
Aside from over-the-counter drugs, an intermediary such as a doctor or nurse will prescribe a drug and tell the patient how to use it properly. While it can be difficult to hold an intermediary liable for damages, an experienced pharmaceutical litigation attorney can help prove your case.
