Consumers who have suffered from a dangerous drug can bring suit against pharmaceutical companies in individual or multi-plaintiff lawsuits. Defects in the design or manufacturing of a drug, deceptive marketing, and failure to adequately warn consumers about a drug’s dangerous side effects can result in drug companies being held liable for injuries sustained from their product. Flaws in the design of drugs or problems relating to their manufacture can expose consumers to toxic reactions and infections. Advertising campaigns that downplay possible drug interactions or harmful side effects of a medication increase the possibility of injury or fatality when physicians, pharmacists, and consumers rely on blind trust when using the drugs. Failure to put adequate warning labels on product containers or in advertisements also puts consumers at risk.
Individual product liability lawsuits and mass tort litigation have resulted in numerous claims against some of the largest pharmaceutical companies. Billions of dollars have been paid out by these companies, but their profits continue to rise. Some of the most dangerous drugs that have faced litigation include those designed to lower blood pressure or cholesterol, improve sexual performance, reduce the hot flashes associated with menopause, and relieve arthritis pain.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a dangerous drug, it is imperative to contact a reliable product liability lawyer as soon as possible. Laws vary by state, but the average statute of limitations is one to two years following the injury. We understand the laws and limitations set forth by Pennsylvania courts and work diligently to ensure that your case is presented within these time restraints.
