Brooklyn Pharmaceutical Litigation Attorney
Put Decades of Experience in Your Corner
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 “off label” 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 Brooklyn pharmaceutical 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.
