Defective and dangerous drugs can pose serious risks to the health and well-being of patients who take them. We generally trust that medication prescribed to us or available over the counter is safe and effective. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration oversees approval, and every drug must undergo rigorous testing before it hits the market. While this is true in theory, there are many exceptions and every year millions of people take dangerous or defective drugs.
A drug can be defective or dangerous for many reasons, including possible serious complications, increased risk of injury or death, or missing warnings. If a drug caused you or a loved one to suffer preventable harm, a defective drug lawsuit lawyer can help. Let a member of the team from Tosi & Rose review your case at no cost to you. Call 888-312-2518 now to discuss your options.
We Can Handle Any Defective Drug Lawsuit
Despite evidence of severe side effects, serious complications, and even death, some drug companies continue to market their products without any additional warnings or consideration for victims. If we can show your injuries, expenses, and losses occurred because of a defective or unreasonably dangerous medication, we can take legal action against the drug company and hold them strictly liable in court.
Some of the defective and dangerous drug cases we are currently reviewing include:
- Abilify: Linked to high-risk sexual activity, compulsive gambling, and other compulsive behaviors
- Concerta: May cause suicidal thoughts
- Invokana: Plaintiffs allege they developed ketoacidosis and kidney damage, and some required limb amputations
- Lipitor: Linked to the development of diabetes
- Nexium and Prilosec: May cause acute kidney injury and renal failure, strokes and heart damage, and broken bones
- Taxotere: Plaintiffs allege they suffered permanent hair loss
- Vioxx: Linked to heart attack, stroke, and death
- Zithromax: Plaintiffs allege that family members suffered arrhythmia and sudden death
- Zofran: May cause birth defects when taken by pregnant mothers
If you suffered injuries or unreasonable side effects from one of these drugs — or a medication not on this list — call us today at 888-312-2518. We can evaluate your case and help you pursue a payout.
Tosi & Rose Can Take on Your Defective & Dangerous Drug Lawsuit
Taking medication should help you treat an illness, manage a condition, or overcome an injury. All too often, though, it also causes unreasonable harm. There are several ways a drug can be defective or dangerous. This includes:
- Manufacturer error in making the drug
- Failure to warn consumers of serious side effects or interactions
- Design flaws that make the drug too dangerous to use
At Tosi & Rose, our defective drug lawsuit attorneys understand what it takes to pursue a payout in this type of case. We will collect all available evidence, document your related injuries, expenses, and losses, and then take legal action to try to recover the compensation you need and deserve.
As a part of this process, we will also look into similar complaints about the drug. We may be able to identify other victims and work on a mass tort together or join multidistrict litigation already in progress. If there are no other similar cases, we can pursue your case in civil court and go toe-to-toe with the drug manufacturer on our own on your behalf.
Reach out to us today to discuss your case, and we can help you understand your rights and what to expect throughout this process. You can dial 888-312-2518 now to talk to a member of our team.
Recoverable Damages in a Defective Drug Lawsuit
No matter how we pursue compensation on your behalf, we will aggressively fight for a payout from the drug company that compensates you for your related injuries, expenses, and losses. When we gather evidence to build your case, it will include documentation of a wide variety of expenses and losses. We will strive to recover a payout to cover these damages.
While the value of your case hinges on several factors, some of the most common types of damages available include:
- Medical care and related expenses
- Ongoing care and future care costs
- Lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering
- Other psychological damages
- Wrongful death damages
You May Only Have a Limited Time to Act
Each state puts a deadline on how long you can wait to take a drug company to court. When we review your case, the team from Tosi & Rose can determine where we need to pursue compensation on your behalf and explain the time limits based on that jurisdiction. Because these time limits can sometimes be relatively short, we encourage you to reach out to us about your case as soon as possible.
If we miss this deadline, the courts may not allow us to take legal action to hold the manufacturer of the defective and dangerous drug liable. Our case reviews are always free, and you pay nothing unless we secure a payout for you. It costs nothing for you to call and discuss your case with a defective drug lawsuit lawyer today.
