Nearly half of Americans take at least one prescription medication; one in six takes three or more. Unfortunately, many drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are later shown to produce dangerous side effects. Dangerous drugs often make it to market because their potential dangers were not anticipated during clinical trials.

Consumers trust pharmaceutical companies to offer safe, effective medications. If a manufacturer acts negligently, its actions can result in serious medical complications for the consumer of their drugs. Those unfortunate victims however, may have a remedy by bringing a product liability claim against the drug’s manufacturer.
Drug manufacturers are required to comprehensively test each product before seeking approval from the FDA. Additionally, each drug’s label must disclose full information about the medication’s potential side effects. The failure to warn of the risk of serious side effects – such as heart attacks and strokes – is frequently the basis of pharmaceutical litigation.
Many drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are later shown to produce dangerous side effects. In these cases, the manufacturer of the drug may be held liable for injuries to users.
The pharmaceutical litigation lawyers at the Maher Law Firm handle all kinds of dangerous drug claims, including those involving:
