Dangerous Prescription Drugs
While most drugs are safe and effective when taken as intended, some prescription drugs have been linked to dangerous side effects and pulled off the market by their manufacturers and the Food and Drug Administration. A successful claim against a big pharmaceutical company requires thorough preparation and planning. There are many complex legal and scientific issues that will arise, and it is essential that your attorney have a thorough understanding of these issues. Accordingly, if you believe you may have a claim for injuries caused by a drug, you should not hesitate to seek legal advice.
McChesney & Ortwerth is currently accepting cases against the makers of Vioxx and Fosamax, an osteoporosis medication linked to osteonecrosis of the jaw; ReNu with MoistureLoc contact lens solution, which was voluntarily withdrawn from market after reports of eye infections; Zicam® Allergy Relief nasal gel, an over-the-counter gel that has been linked to a loss of smell and taste; and Ketek, an antibiotic linked to liver toxicity.
