Atlanta Defective Drug Lawyer

Injured? You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Most pharmaceutical drug-related injuries and deaths occur within the first year of a drug’s release, which means that many drugs are released for public use without a full understanding or appreciation of their risks or potential side effects. Pharmaceutical companies, by law, are strictly liable for any drugs that are deemed defective or unreasonably dangerous to the public.

Injured people may have a right to file a compensation-seeking lawsuit for the damages they have sustained as a result of taking a hazardous pharmaceutical. Damages typically available in these types of cases include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and more. If you have suffered the untimely death of a family member, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf seeking compensation for funeral and burial costs, loss of companionship and support, and more.

Types of Dangerous Drugs

  • Accutane, an acne drug that can cause Crohn’s Disease, miscarriage and birth defects, depression, and suicide
  • Benicar, a blood pressure medication linked with severe gastrointestinal problems
  • Celexa, an antidepressant drug with side effects including worsening depression, violent or suicidal behavior, and more
  • Invokana, a diabetes drug linked to ketoacidosis and kidney disease
  • Lipitor, a cholesterol-lowering drug that can cause diabetes
