Defective Drugs

Defective and Dangerous Drug Attorneys

Millions of Americans rely on prescription medications to treat and prevent a number of illnesses and conditions. These consumers trust that drug manufacturers and distributors will create safe, fully tested medications and disclose all possible side effects and drug interactions. However, this is not always the case.

Far too often, pharmaceutical companies prioritize their own profits over the safety of the public, causing countless people to suffer serious injuries, worsening conditions, or even death. At The Ammons Law Firm, we believe that negligent pharmaceutical entities should be held accountable for the pain and suffering they cause. Our Houston product liability attorneys provide dedicated and aggressive advocacy for clients throughout the nation. We have recovered over $1 billion on behalf of victims and their families.

Common Dangerous & Defective Drugs

Pharmaceutical companies have been the subject of large class actions and mass tort litigation. Although every single drug that enters the consumer market is required to go through a rigorous testing process, manufacturers often push their products through these trials despite evidence of harmful side effects. This leads to tens of thousands of deaths and countless more injuries each year.

Some examples of dangerous and defective pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices that have been involved in high-profile litigation include:

  • Talcum powder
  • Xarelto
  • Pradaxa
  • Yaz/Yasmin
  • Nexium
  • Prilosec
  • Zantac
  • Uloric
  • Invokana
  • Paxil
  • Opioids
  • Anti-depressants

This list represents only a small portion of pharmaceutical medications that have led to severe side effects, widespread injuries, and deaths in recent years. Defective drugs have been shown to lead to everything from life-threatening internal organ damage to hemorrhaging and uncontrolled bleeding to birth injuries and more.

If you or someone you love has been affected by a dangerous or defective drug, reach out to The Ammons Law Firm as soon as possible for a free and confidential consultation.

How Defective Drugs Enter the Consumer Market

There are several ways in which pharmaceutical drugs may be defective and allowed to enter the consumer marketplace. A drug may be initially ill-suited to treat the condition for which it is intended, or it may have unreasonable side effects. A manufacturing error may occur during the production phase, contaminating a single batch or an entire line of pharmaceutical drugs. The distributor—including prescribing doctors and pharmacists—may fail to fully disclose all possible side effects and drug interactions to patients. All of these can and do lead to devastating consequences.

While some pharmaceutical drugs are pushed through an expedited trial and testing process, not all defective drugs enter the market in such blatant ways. However, even if a manufacturer is unaware of a dangerous side effect or took extensive precautions to label a specific medication, they can typically still be held accountable for any damages under strict liability.
