Dangerous Drugs

It’s an unfortunate fact of life that many of the drugs people take in hopes of treating symptoms or curing an illness create further problems due to negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Negligence often occurs due to the manufacturer's inadequate warnings of the drug's serious side effect, as well as dangerous design and marketing. Estimates show that up to 200,000 patients in America experience fatalities due to the side effects from certain prescription drugs.

At Heard Law Firm, PLLC, we are proud to uphold the rights of those who have been injured due to dangerous drugs. Our lawyers are experienced in pharmaceutical litigation and have established reputations as powerful trial attorneys.

Dangerous Drug Claims We Handle

Pharmaceutical companies and drug manufacturers are notorious for pressuring the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to quickly approve their drugs. To do this the manufacturers do not disclose the drug’s dangerous side effects to the FDA in the approval process, so the drugs reach the patient and physician with inadequate and incomplete warnings of those serious side effects. Unfortunately, this can lead to serious problems for consumers. Rushed approvals and inadequate testing can result in catastrophic injuries and death.
