Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Pharmaceutical Injury Firm Serving Victims & Families Nationwide
When is a pharmaceutical company liable for side effects caused by medical products?
Pharmaceutical malpractice or pharmaceutical negligence occurs when a company fails to exercise proper care and caution in the creation and production of a product. Whether the drug was incorrectly made or insufficiently tested, or the packaging failed to contain warnings regarding certain side effects or misuses of the drug, you could be eligible for compensation of damages sustained due to injuries caused by proper use of the medication in question.
What are examples of drugs associated with serious side effects?
Medications known to cause serious side effects in some patients include:
- GranuFlo – a dry acid dialysis product
- Risperdal – used to treat behavioral issues especially in children and young teens
- Pradaxa – an anticoagulant drug designed to prevent blood clots
- Transvaginal mesh – provides support for pelvic organ prolapse
- Xarelto – an anticoagulant drug designed to prevent blood clots
How long do I have to file a pharmaceutical injury claim?
