Dangerous Drugs & Pharmaceuticals

Medical Malpractice Attorney Nancy Winklet
Every drug has a side effect, and some side effects may be harmful. Manufacturers are not typically held liable for potential side effects that are clearly stated. However, there are clear instances in which a manufacturer may be held liable for injuries caused by their drugs:

  • Defective manufacture of a drug, which includes every step of the process through shipment
  • Dangerous side effects beyond normal the normal range of those clearly stated
  • Improper marketing that leads to injury as a result of a drug being used incorrectly


If you have been harmed by a dangerous drug, you may be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the drug, and in some cases, the doctor who prescribed it. We represent clients in class action lawsuits against drug manufacturers as well as individual lawsuits in which there is only a single plaintiff.
