New York City Defective Drug Lawyer

Dangerous Prescription Drugs

Both pharmaceutical companies and doctors are responsible for providing full disclosure of any side effects or injuries that a drug might cause. Prescription drugs can be very dangerous when they are not carefully tested before being distributed, or when they are negligently prescribed or compounded. The components of prescription drugs are actually illegal unless validly prescribed by a licensed physician, since they have the potential of causing physical harm and are subject to abuse or dependency.

Such dangerous drugs should not be distributed or prescribed carelessly, and anyone who has been injured due to such negligence has a right to obtain compensation. Doctors who prescribe drugs with side effects must not only advise you of the side effects but also carefully monitor you for those side effects before they become irreversible and cause major injuries. If you were injured by a dangerous drug, the NYC injury attorneys at Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC want to hear from you. Call now to set up a free consultation.

Common Dangerous Drugs

Most people have been prescribed medication at some time in their lives. Naturally, we trust that our doctor will prescribe us medicine that is safe and effective. Unfortunately, our doctors are sometimes unaware of the dangerous side effects a drug may be causing.

The following is a list of dangerous and banned drugs that are commonly known to cause harm:

  • Avelox
  • Avastin
  • Avandia
  • Actos
  • Accutane
  • Bextra
  • Motrin/Advil/Ibuprofen
  • Chantix
  • Darvon and Darvocet
  • Depakote
  • Enbrel
  • Fentanyl
  • Fosamax
  • SSRI
  • Topamax
  • Tylenol
  • Victoza
  • Yasmin

You may have purchased some of these drugs over-the-counter at your local pharmacy. Remember, just because a particular medication doesn't require a doctor's prescription doesn't mean that it doesn't have potentially harmful side effects. Defective medical devices, such as malfunctioning kidney dialysis equipment, IUDs, pacemakers, heart stents and breast implants, can also cause serious problems.

The following is a list of some medical devices and artificial joints that patients have recently complained about or have been recalled by the Food & Drug Administration:

  • Medtronic INFUSE® Spinal Fusion Bone Graft
  • St. Jude Heart Defibrillator
  • Stryker Hip Implants
  • DePuy Hip Replacement
  • Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads
  • Transvaginal Mesh (TVM) Injuries
  • Conserve Plus Hip Implants
  • Wright Pro Femur
  • Zimmer NexGen Knee Implant Failure

The FDA will only recall a drug after they have received reports of injury or death. Their approach of profits before safety is a cause of all this unnecessary suffering. If you have taken, or are currently taking, one of the drugs mentioned above, and are experiencing painful side effects, contact one of our experienced personal injury attorneys in NYC at Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC today.

Drug Manufacturer Responsibilities

Prescription drug companies have a responsibility to do whatever is necessary to guarantee their products are safe. They also have a responsibility to clearly explain the risks that may be associated with their products, and to regularly evaluate the safety of these products. If a drug company fails in any of these responsibilities, they can be held legally responsible. These legal liabilities include:

  • Inadequate warning – A drug or device manufacturer's warning does not reflect true risks of medications or devices, or is presented in such a way that doesn't transmit pertinent information.
  • Negligence – A manufacturer fails to meet reasonable standards of testing or safe production of device.
  • Failure to warn – When drug manufacturers or device makers fail to provide doctors with all the information they need regarding the drug or device's safety.
  • False marketing – When a company presents a product for uses the product wasn't meant for.
  • Tainted drugs – When manufacturers let plants become dirty and their products become tainted.

Lawsuits Against Pharmaceutical Companies

When a pharmaceutical company fails to properly test a drug before distributing it to the general public, or when they fail to properly label the drug and disclose its dangers, an unsuspecting individual could suffer serious personal injury. Stomach ulcers, unexpected side effects, harmful drug combinations, and a number of other injuries and dangers can arise from improperly labeled and prescribed drugs.

Jaroslawicz & Jaros, LLC has handled numerous dangerous drug claims with outstanding results. Attorney Abraham Jaros is particularly experienced in medical malpractice cases and has won record-setting verdicts of more than $1 million and $2 million in compensation for past clients.
