Pharmaceutical Injury Lawyers

Almost everyone has taken a prescription drug or some other form of medicine. Before a drug can be sold to the public, it has to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Products must undergo several rounds of testing and clinical trials to receive the FDA's approval, but their process can't catch everything. With the help of a pharmaceutical injury lawyer, patients who have been harmed by a prescription or over-the-counter drug can file a claim for the compensation they need to cover their medical costs. If you have been hurt by a medication, Leav & Steinberg LLP may be able to help.

What Is Drug Liability?

If you have had severe health issues after taking a medication, you may be able to file a drug liability claim. Drug liability cases are a part of product liability, and there are three different types of claims:

  • Defectively manufactured drugs: This involves medications that have been tainted, improperly manufactured, or mislabeled.
  • Dangerous side effects: This covers harmful side effects that were not fully disclosed by the drug's manufacturer, even several years after it has been on the market.
  • Improperly marketed drugs: This applies to drugs with insufficient or incorrect warnings, instructions, or recommendations on how to use them.

Depending on the case, one or more of these claims can be filed against one or more parties. In some cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit for medical malpractice.

Do You Have a Drug Liability Case?

Before filing a claim, your lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation of your situation to determine which factors may have contributed to your injury. This includes looking into whether the drug manufacturer, physician, pharmacist, or another party can be held accountable for negligence. An experienced attorney will look for attempts to hide dangerous side effects by the manufacturer, mistakes by the pharmacy, and more.

★★★★★
I had a great experience with this law firm for my personal injury case. I was referred to them by another attorney who did not handle the type of case I had and from the beginning I felt I was in good hands by Edward Averbach, Esq., Edward Steinberg, Esq. and the paralegals that worked my case.
