Pennsylvania Dangerous Drug Attorneys

Experienced, Knowledgeable Legal Representation

At some point, we all take over-the-counter drugs or fill prescriptions from the doctor. Whether we’re dealing with a headache or a serious medical condition, these medications are designed to help us cope. For that reason, we expect the medication we take to help treat our symptoms or improve our condition.

Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to make sure the pharmaceuticals they sell are both effective and safe. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. In fact, every day countless people throughout the United States are injured or killed by defective or dangerous drugs.

Let Our Firm Help You

If you or someone you love was harmed by a dangerous or defective drug, our firm is prepared to help you seek justice and compensation for the damages you suffered. We understand how devastating the effects of harmful drugs can be, and we want to use our legal knowledge to help you seek maximum compensation. We proudly serve injured clients in several areas throughout Pennsylvania, including Altoona, State College, Johnstown, and Indiana. Whether you were harmed by a dangerous cholesterol medication or you lost a loved one to a prescription opioid overdose, our firm is here to advocate on your behalf.

Call (814) 277-5664 to discuss your potential case with our Pennsylvania dangerous drug lawyers.

Pharmaceutical Companies & Liability

Eager to see the profits roll in, drug companies may quickly put a new drug on the market without conducting adequate testing to ensure it's safe for public use. When these big pharmaceutical companies put profits before safety, everyone is in danger. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration can and does issue recalls for dangerous or defective drugs, these often only occur after several people have already been harmed or killed.

If you or someone you love has suffered severe, dangerous side effects after taking a drug, our firm is prepared to help you seek justice from the liable party. We understand your rights and our seasoned personal injury lawyers are not afraid to go up against big pharmaceutical companies on your behalf.

Understanding the Danger

Dangerous drugs can cause any number of serious side effects, including anything from birth defects to heart attacks or increased risk of cancer. Other dangerous drug side effects might include liver failure, chronic pain, organ damage, brain damage, and hormonal changes. Some medications may also affect the psyche by increasing suicidal thoughts and tendencies. The potential side effects of each drug vary greatly depending on the type of medication, its function, and dosage.

Some of the dangerous drug cases we handle include:

  • Opioids
  • Valsartan

The Risks of Opioids

The opioid epidemic has cost several people their lives and has severely impacted countless others across the nation. These commonly prescribed painkillers are extremely addictive, a quality many doctors weren’t fully aware of until patients quickly exhibited signs of addiction. However, pharmaceutical companies responsible for manufacturing these drugs have been blamed for encouraging doctors to prescribe these dangerous medicines for the sake of profit. If you or someone you love was harmed by opioids, our firm is here to help.

Dangerous Drug Valsartan

Originally created to treat high blood pressure and heart failure, Valsartan has recently been associated with serious contamination issues. Allegedly, several batches of Valsartan were contaminated by carcinogenic substances NDMA and NDEA. As a result, several individuals taking the dangerous drug developed liver tumors and various cancers. Anyone who was diagnosed with cancer after taking Valsartan should act quickly to seek legal representation from our experienced firm.
