Pharmaceutical Drug Injury
Drugs with deadly or dangerous side effects often make it to the market because their potential dangers were not anticipated during clinical trials. These drugs are classified as defective drugs and have been identified by the FDA as having dangerous side effects that may outweigh whatever benefits they may have. Such an FDA classification often leads to drug recalls, personal injuries and lawsuits against drug companies.

Current List of Pharmaceutical Drug Injury Claims

Depakote is a widely used anti-seizure medication. If used during pregnancy, it may cause birth defects to the infant. These birth defects may include spina bifida, cleft palate, skull malformations, skeletal defects, and serious heart defects. We are interested in reviewing cases where a mother used Depakote during pregnancy, and a child was born with one of these birth defects.
Invokana is a new medication used to treat Type II diabetes. A large number of persons using this medication have had diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) requiring hospitalization as well as amputation. We are looking at these serious injury cases.
Proton pump inhibitor drugs, such as Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid, now available over the counter, are used primarily to treat Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and have recently been linked to serious side effects including acute kidney failure. We are looking at these serious injury cases.
There is evidence that women that have used a talcum powder product, e.g. Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder, Shower 2 Shower, have a higher incidence of developing ovarian cancer. We are looking at these types of cases.
These are newer anticoagulation medications used to treat Atrial fibrillation and have been associated with serious, often deadly bleeding– including GI, brain, and other. We are looking at all cases where a person was using one of these medications and, while using, had a serious bleeding event.
