Pharmaceutical Lawsuits

Cases of pharmaceutical litigation have grown significantly over the past few years, with companies paying billions to settle many lawsuits throughout the world. In fact, between 2001 and 2010, pharmaceutical companies accounted for 25 percent of all False Claims Act settlements in the United States. This is concerning as just about everyone has taken medication at some point, whether it is an over-the-counter drug or a prescription given to them by a doctor. We trust that those drugs are safe, tested and will make us better. We don’t expect a doctor or pharmacist to make a mistake in dosage or to learn later that a drug manufacturer minimized potential deadly side effects during the testing phase. Yet these things happen every day, leading to pharmaceutical litigation for those that have been injured or killed by dangerous drugs.

There have been many seemingly harmless drugs that have been the subject of pharmaceutical litigation when it was determined they were dangerous, including:

  • Accutane
  • Actos
  • Adderall
  • Avandia
  • Bextra
  • Botox
  • Celebrex
  • Chantix
  • Children’s Motrin
  • Cipro
  • Darvon & Darvocet
  • Digitek
  • Energy Drinks
  • Fosamax
  • Gardasil
  • GranuFlo
  • Heparin
  • Ketek
  • Levaquin
  • Neurontin
  • Omontys
  • Ortho Evra
  • Paxil
  • Permax
  • Pradaxa
  • Reglan
  • ReNu
  • Seroquel
  • Topamax
  • Trasylol
  • Tsabri
  • Tylenol
  • Viagra
  • Vioxx
  • Yaz/Yasmin
  • Xarelto
  • Zelnorm
  • Zyprexa

Many times, a new drug can mean millions in revenue to a drug company. Unfortunately, this means that the drug manufacturer may rush the drug to market without adequate testing. Even worse, the company may hide negative results from testing in an effort to get the drug approved quickly. It is not unusual during pharmaceutical litigation to learn that in-house emails or other correspondence clearly indicate that a drug showed the potential for a possibly deadly side effect, including cardiac problems or neurological damage. In some cases the United States Food and Drug Administration issues a recall, but often not until the drug has already caused a significant number of people to suffer.

At the Carse Law Firm, we understand how devastating a deadly side effect can be. You may now suffer from chronic pain or other problems that make it difficult for you to work. You may now have life-threatening illnesses, including heart damage, bladder cancer or have received some other devastating diagnosis due to a prescription drug you took without the knowledge that there was the potential for problems. A loved one may have died due to complications from a drug or medical device. If any of these are true for you, contact the Carse Law Firm to learn whether you qualify for pharmaceutical litigation.
