Dangerous and Defective Drugs Are a Leading Cause of Preventable Injury
Compassionate care for victims in Kentucky
Crandall & Pera Law provides comprehensive care for patients whose illnesses or conditions were exacerbated by defective and dangerous drugs. Our team of medical malpractice attorneys, registered nurses and legal staff is intimately familiar with the effects of a defective drug, and we understand how those effects can have life-altering consequences on victims and their families.
Drugs to watch out for
While all medications come with risks, some drugs have proven more dangerous than others. Crandall & Pera Law is skilled in dangerous drug litigation, and many of our cases involve drugs such as:
- Yaz and Yasmin
Though this list is not complete, it offers a good look at the types of dangerous drug litigation cases Crandall & Pera Law handles. Our in-depth understanding of the laws that govern both medical malpractice and defective products has allowed us to recover millions for our clients in jury trials and in settlements.
Why are there so many dangerous drugs?
In some cases, a batch of drugs may have been contaminated, or a pharmacist may have made a mistake when filling the prescription. Both of these examples are serious, but they are not necessarily indicative of a large-scale problem. A defective drug may be one that has not undergone enough testing for its use. Many defective drug cases involves medications which:
- Have legally bypassed FDA testing regulations
- Have skewed the results of those tests by studying a small test group, or by not conducting the tests long enough
- Have not reported all side effects or dangers to the FDA
- Are being advertised for “off-label” uses by pharmaceutical companies
- Are being prescribed in an “off-label” use by physicians
At Crandall & Pera Law, we are prepared to handle these types of complex claims. We are recognized throughout Kentucky as skilled courtroom litigators and settlement negotiators. We have represented clients in lawsuits against those who manufacture, distribute and prescribe dangerous drugs and defective medical devices.
