Drug/Pharmaceutical Injuries

Although drug companies advertise themselves as healers and do-gooders, they are for-profit businesses whose bottom line is, you named it: PROFIT. These companies may go to any length to get a new drug approved, or keep an approved drug on the marker, going as far as misleading the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) while doing so. Drug companies continue to pay BILLIONS–that’s right, BILLIONS of dollars in fines, settlements and verdicts to those injured by their defective or dangerous drugs.

Many drugs have been ordered withdrawn from the market by the FDA—after they were initially approved by the FDA. They were withdrawn because it was discovered that the drug caused serious side effects, or even death. Many times, it is then discovered that the drug company knew of the harmful, or fatal side effects before the drug was approved, but failed to fully disclose that information to the FDA. Some examples are Vioxx (pain killer), Rezulin (diabetes drug), Avandia (diabetes drug) and Baycol (high cholesterol drug).

Injuries caused by defective or dangerous drugs may be extremely serious, or even fatal, and may result in money damages which add up to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, or even MILLIONS of DOLLARS!


When a defective or dangerous drug causes Serious Injuries, the “Medical Bills” for treating those Injuries may reach HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of DOLLARS. This may include long and repeated hospitalizations to stabilize the victim, multiple surgeries, prolonged physical and occupational therapy, rehabilitation and expensive medications. The client may be faced with huge Medical Bills, but without any way to pay them.


Depending on what type of work the Client performed prior to being seriously injured by a defective or dangerous drug, the loss of past and future wages may add up to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, or even MILLIONS of DOLLARS. This is known as ”Past and Future Lost Wages.” The more the Client earned, the more the Past and Future Lost Wages may add up to be. Even if the Client did not earn high wages before being seriously injured by a defective or dangerous drug, the Lost Future Wages may be substantial when the Client is very young.


Injuries caused by a defective or dangerous drug may produce incredible Pain & Suffering to the Client. This may be from the initial injury caused by the defective or dangerous drug, the surgery(s) necessary to treat the injuries, as well as the Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation the Client must undergo following medical treatment of the injuries. The law allows the Client to recovery Money Damages for PAIN & SUFFERING, which may be very significant.


You may also be entitled to recover monetary damages for Mental Anguish associated with your injuries and traumatic experience.

Mental Anguish is much more than common worries about everyday life–it is the overwhelming concern about how to pay for huge medical bills, whether there will be a full recovery from devastating injuries, or whether you will ever be able to return to work.

When connected with a physical injury, mental anguish includes both the resultant mental sensation of pain and also the accompanying feelings of extreme distress, fright, and anxiety. As an element of damages implies a relatively high degree of mental pain and distress; it is more than mere disappointment, anger, worry, resentment, or embarrassment, although it may include all of these, and it includes mental sensations of pain resulting from such painful emotions as grief, severe disappointment, indignation, wounded pride, shame, despair, and/or public humiliation.
