Drug Cases Our Firm Can Help With
There are numerous dangerous drugs on the market, and at George & Farinas,
LLP, we deal with cases for Zofran, Accutane, Actos, Pradaxa. If you have
become ill, or were injured as a direct result of taking one of these
drugs, you may have a case.
Zofran: Typically prescribed as a nausea treatment following surgery or for cancer
patients, Zofran has been linked to serious birth defects. Zofran is manufactured
by GlaxoSmithKline, and was at one time a top-selling drug in the United
States. It has since been linked to serious birth injuries including heart
defects, cleft lip, cleft palate, fetal growth restriction, jaundice,
kidney defects, and death.
Accutane: Accutane was produced by Hoffman-LaRoche, but has since been taken off
the market after serious side effects were reported. Prescribed for severe
acne, it was linked to birth defects, Crohn’s disease, and even suicide.
Actos: Prescribed for the treatment of Type II Diabetes, Actos was reviewed by
the FDA as a possible cause of bladder cancer. Studies showed that use
of Actus increased the risk of developing bladder cancer if the patient
took the drug for at least 1 year. It was also linked to other serious
health issues, like heart and liver diseases, congestive heart failure,
liver conditions, and bone fractures. Due to adverse results of medical
studies, both France and Germany have suspended the use of Actos.
Pradaxa: Manufactured and sold by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc., Pradaxa
was formulated as a blood thinner fore stroke prevention associated with
patients suffering from atrial fibrillation. However, the drunk has recently
been known to cause uncontrollable and excessive bleeding, only treatable
by emergency treatment where the drug is removed from the person’s
Understanding Your Legal Rights
It is the responsibility of the drug manufacturer to adequately test a
drug for safety, and to see that all potential side effects are clearly
listed on a warning label. If a company purposely hides evidence of a
harmful side effect, or knowingly produces and sells a dangerous drug,
they are responsible for the damages that drug causes. Likewise, failing
to warn doctors and patients of known warnings is equally unlawful.
