Pharmaceutical Drug Cases

Product manufacturers and distributors of pharmaceuticals, and to some extent the medical professionals who prescribe them, owe a duty of safety to the people taking the drugs.

Pharmaceutical companies are required to invest millions of dollars into research and development of potential drugs. Once developed, these drugs face years of rigorous testing and trials prior to being approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and being released to the public for use. Although potential side effects are meticulously reported, it is possible that unanticipated side effects will emerge after the drug has been prescribed and used on a regular basis by patients.

Drugs that are found to have severe side effects, such as infertility, birth defects, or death, may be recalled or may lose approval by the FDA to be prescribed when particular factors are present. For example, the FDA may only allow a drug to be prescribed to women who are not pregnant, or to people who have not suffered previous kidney problems.

Unfortunately, for some patients who have been taking the drug, these measures may be too late to avoid irreparable damage. These patients may be entitled to a financial settlement to compensate for damages related to the use of the drug, including medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Although it is rare, a pharmaceutical company or doctor may have been aware of the potential for a particular side effect, but continued to distribute and prescribe the medication without putting proper weight on the warning of the side effect to patients. In this case, punitive damages may be available to those people harmed by the use of the drug.

Mr. Calabro will investigate the drug, including known side effects and those which were not anticipated, how it was prescribed by doctors and for which conditions it was intended to be prescribed. After providing an honest assessment of your options, he will build a product liability claim designed to recover your losses.
