Drug Injuries

All prescription and over the counter medications come with certain risks.  These risks are also known as “side effects.”  Some risks or side effects are known, and they may be minor enough that they are outweighed by the benefits the medication can provide.  Others, however, are serious and can outweigh any benefits the medication might provide.  When these more serious risks are ignored or intentionally kept quiet, injuries can result.

We are currently pursuing claims for injuries caused by:

  • Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) or Antacid” Medications
  • Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) or Antidepressant Medications
  • Anti-Nausea Medications (e.g., Zofran)
  • Anticoagulants or Blood Thinners (e.g., Xarelto)

When we file drug injury claims we typically allege one or more of the following:

  • That the drug was defective because it caused harm that outweighed any benefits from taking the drug.  These claims assume that the drug was manufactured properly and prescribed for the right condition, but that the drug itself is too dangerous.  Claims involving anticoagulants or blood thinners that cause excessive or fatal bleeding are one example of this type of claim.
  • That the drug was marketed improperly.  Marketing includes any warnings or instructions that come with the drug. If the manufacturer knows of a certain risk but does not include this information in the packaging or instructions, the manufacturer may be liable if a patient is harmed because the patient did not know that the drugs should not be mixed.  Claims involving proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and anti-nausea medications are examples of this type of claim.
  • That the drug was defectively manufactured – meaning it was tainted, or contaminated during shipping, mislabeled.  These claims include any mistakes made between the creation of the medication at the factory and the moment the patient receives the medication.
