Dangerous Drug Attorneys in Indianapolis, IN
Pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars to introduce new drugs to the market, expecting to make billions more dollars when a drug is approved by the FDA and prescribed to patients or sold over-the-counter. In order to achieve their goals and maximize profits, drug companies sometimes bypass or intentionally overlook safety issues, putting innocent victims in harm’s way if a drug proves to be dangerous. Lee & Fairman, LLP represents Indiana consumers harmed by dangerous drugs, working to hold pharmaceutical companies responsible for irresponsible practices, and win compensation for our clients.
Adverse Effects Due to Dangerous Drugs
A drug can be defective or dangerous because of the way it is manufactured or because of inadequate warnings regarding the drug’s potential side-effects. Injuries caused by dangerous drugs range from loss of senses to organ failure to birth defects, and in some cases death. Dangerous drugs that have given rise to serious injuries, fatalities, and subsequent litigation include:
If a drug is prescribed or available over-the-counter, consumers have the right to be fully informed of its proper dosage, potential interactions with other medications, side effects, and any other relevant information about the drug. In many cases, patients may not understand the connection between the use of a certain drug and the medical issues they have experienced. If this is your situation, it is not your responsibility to know this information. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to provide it to you.
Unfortunately, however, dangerous drug cases are difficult to win, making it extremely important to hire a law firm with the knowledge and experience to handle complex litigation and go up against large, well-funded adversaries. At Lee & Fairman, LLP, we possess the skill to level the playing field with pharmaceutical companies, as well as access to state-of-the-art resources and prominent experts who can effectively explain your injuries and damages to a judge and jury.
