New York Pharmaceutical Attorney
NYC Defective Product Claims
The advancement of pharmaceutical products has many practical applications
in the everyday life of Americans. However, pharmaceutical companies sometimes
do not adequately disclose the dangers of consuming their products. Many
Americans have been injured or even killed because the drug companies
have not adequately tested or labeled their products. If you or one of
your loved ones was injured by a dangerous side effect from a prescription
drug, you should contact an experienced Manhattan pharmaceutical lawyer;
you may be entitled to a pharmaceutical settlement.

Misleading Promises from Pharmaceutical Companies
Pharmaceutical companies have a powerful marketing machine that they use
to sell their products to consumers. Sometimes companies fail to highlight
the serious side effects of a dangerous drug. Pharmaceutical companies
also might promote their product for what is called an “offlabel”
use. The company will suggest to medical providers and the public that
the drug should be used for a purpose that it is not approved for. This
can have devastating effects to the general public, who has been misled
by pharmaceutical companies. If you were injured by a defective drug whose
side effects were not known to the public, you can bring a claim against
the manufacturer for pharmaceutical products liability. You will need a
New York City personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling these types of claims and fighting with
the drug company to get you a fair settlement.
In recent years, there have been some very high-profile defective drug
lawsuits, for drugs that caused suicidal behavior, extreme weight gain,
strokes, blindness, and many other serious and potentially fatal ailments.
After these problems come to light, manufacturers sometimes change the
warning labels of their products to insulate themselves from any future
litigation. Yet in the meantime, the families who are coping with the
injuries from the drug are left to pick up the pieces. Many drug companies
will go out of their way to try to show that the injury was not caused
by their drug or that the victim took an improper dosage.
Pursuing Financial Compensation for Your Injuries
If you have been injured by a defective drug, you need to speak with an
experienced NYC products liability attorney. Belushin Law Firm can help
make sure your claim is filed and your right to compensation is protected.
There is a law called a statute of limitations that limits the time in
which a consumer can bring a claim for their injury from a
defective product. New York product liability
law states that a consumer has three years from the date that the injury occurred or was discovered in which to bring a claim. If you have been injured,
an experienced Brooklyn product liability attorney can help to make sure
your claim is filed in time.
