Riverside County Pharmaceutical Injury Lawyer

Dangerous Prescription Drugs

It is agonizing when major pharmaceutical companies put the public at risk, especially after their own studies show increased risks from their products. Yet every year, an increasing amount of families and individuals are affected by this type of negligence and some with fatal results. When you or a loved one takes a drug that causes serious or deadly side effects, the pharmaceutical company that manufactured or marketed the product can and should be held accountable for its actions.

Victims of dangerous drugs confront a number of serious and potentially life-threatening side effects, such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, liver damage, kidney damage, depression, hemorrhagic stroke and more. Our experienced team of dangerous drug lawyers represent clients who have been seriously injured or lost loved ones exposed to prescription, over-the-counter or alternative medications.

As someone who has been harmed or lost a loved one due to reckless drug manufacturers, taking legal action will not only help you recover financial compensation, but you will also be able to hold big pharmaceutical companies responsible for their harmful actions in an attempt to stop this abhorrent behavior.

Contacting our Riverside County area defective drug attorneys is your first step in fighting back. It is important that you act quickly since all personal injury suits are subject to a statute of limitations.

Other Common Forms of Pharmaceutical Negligence Include:

Legal cases involving exposure to dangerous prescription or over-the-counter medications can be extremely complicated. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates companies that make drugs and can order a drug recall after receiving reports of injuries or death.

With a strong legal team on your side, you can stand up to major drug manufacturers with confidence.

  • Making false claims or encouraging off-label uses for their products
  • Bribing doctors and others in the medical industry to push their products
  • Manufacturing drugs in unsanitary or contaminated conditions
  • Submitting false or misleading information to receive FDA approval

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Riverside Pharmaceutical Injury Lawyer

Dealing with damages from defective products can cause a wide range of health issues for you and your family/friends. Things get even more complicated when the defective product is a pharmaceutical drug.

Without help from a reputable expert, you may not be able to file a proper product liability claim, meaning you won’t be able to hold the drug manufacturer liable for your damages and therefore, won’t be able to claim proper compensation.

Thankfully, the team at Duque Law is committed to helping anyone with a defective product injury that came from pharmaceutical drugs. 

Whether the problem was during the manufacturing process, or there were marketing defects the company didn’t warn you about, we’ll fight until you get justice.

How Can Riverside Pharmaceutical Drug Defect Attorneys Prove Liability?

Most of the time, victims can file a product liability claim based on two main factors: Negligence and strict liability. Depending on the case, our drug injury lawyer in California will have to prove different things:

In a negligence claim, we will have to prove that the drug manufacturer or company had a duty of care to its consumers and failed to provide it, whether it was because of negligence or inaction. Then, we’ll prove that said negligence or inaction caused you an injury.

On the other hand, we have strict liability. Here, we won’t have to prove there was any negligence on behalf of the manufacturer. 

We’ll have to prove the defective product (a drug, in this case), had a problem in its design or manufacturing process, which caused you an injury.

Our Riverside defective drugs lawyer will evaluate your case carefully through a free consultation, and then, they’ll give you an overview of what they can do to ensure you get compensated accordingly.

What Are Common Injuries from Defective Drugs?

Whether it was because of design, marketing, or manufacturing defects, a faulty pharmaceutical drug can cause different injuries to the victim. 

Here’s a list of common injuries a victim can suffer besides the ones we already mentioned:

  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
  • Bone Fractures
  • Blood Clots

If the problem is severe enough, the injury could even result in the death of the victim. Here, we’ll also help you get compensation to cover the deceased’s bills, lost wages, funeral expenses, and more.

Why Should You File Product Liability Claims for Defective Drugs?

Overall, navigating your legal options without an expert can lead to many mistakes. Moreover, if you don’t have experience, you may have a hard time estimating the value of your case.

Once you talk to one of our experts at Duque Law, you will be able to assess your case more carefully, allowing you to understand your legal rights.
