Defective Drug Litigation in California
Pharmaceutical companies who manufacture and distribute drugs to consumers in the United States must take proper precautions to ensure that drugs are safe and must warn potential users of the potential side effects. Unfortunately, drug manufacturers have produced many drugs that are defective and unnecessarily dangerous, which has resulted in serious harm to people who have taken those drugs.
If you have contracted an illness or disease due to a defective drug, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible as every state has a limitations period in which a lawsuit must be filed. At Kaiser Gornick LLP, we can help you pursue the fair compensation that you deserve.
Examples of Defective Pharmaceutical Litigation
Our firm is currently accepting defective drug cases involving:
- Gadolinium-based contrast agents such as Omniscan and Magnevist. These drugs are used during MRI and MRA procedures.
- Reglan, a drug used in the treatment of heartburn, acid reflux and related symptoms.
- Actos, a drug used to treat diabetes but which has now been linked to bladder cancer.
In past litigation, our attorneys have represented victims who have been harmed by drugs that include:
- Ortho Evra
Each of our clients is the master of his or her case. Each client will have the right to accept or reject a settlement offer and to be involved in the decision to go to trial. A case is always evaluated on its merits and resolved on its merits.
Before we decide to file a lawsuit against a drug manufacturer, we investigate the drug, whether it causes harm and whether it is defective or its manufacturer failed to warn about known risks. Our lawyers are selective. We only take on a case if we are convinced the product is defective and that harm was caused by that defect. Once we agree to handle a claim, we bring our full resources and experience to bear in order to effectively resolve it through settlement or litigation.
