Dedicated Attorneys Litigate Cases Involving Dangerous Drugs

Lawyers seek payment from negligent pharmaceutical companies

Trust is a vital ingredient when it comes to healthcare. You place your trust in medical professionals and the companies that manufacture prescription drugs. Unfortunately, some medications turn out to be harmful to patients, worsening their health and causing severe, sometime even fatal, side effects. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, our personal injury attorneys fight for clients’ rights in cases involving dangerous pharmaceuticals, pursuing full compensation for victims and their families. We want you to obtain the damages you deserve, and we want to compel those companies to develop safer products in the future.

Accomplished firm handles claims involving Viagra, opioids and other drugs

With more than 200 years of combined experience, our mass tort lawyers understand that approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not automatically guarantee the safety of a particular medication. At least 20 new drugs per year, and as many as 46 drugs annually, have been approved by the FDA over the past four years. This volume makes it difficult to conduct an exhaustive review of side effects and drug interactions. Accordingly, several prescription pharmaceuticals have triggered litigation, including:

  • Abilify — Individuals suffering from conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia have been prescribed Abilify to relieve the serious symptoms associated with these conditions. Sadly, the drug has been shown to make things worse by triggering compulsive behaviors. These can include engaging in unsafe sex, overeating, heavy gambling or excessive shopping.
  • Viagra — An increased incidence of melanoma has been detected in men who use erectile dysfunction drugs such as Viagra and Cialis. Though research is ongoing, it is important to determine if a link exists between ED medications and this most dangerous form of skin cancer.
  • Opioids — Aggressive marketing and selling by pharmaceutical companies has contributed to a nationwide opioid addiction crisis. Our firm fights on behalf of victims and families whose lives have been altered by the overprescribing and misuse of these powerful substances.
  • Taxotere — Though temporary hair loss is a well-known side effect of many chemotherapy treatments, the use of Taxotere has led to permanent baldness for many cancer patients. With a safer alternative available, the failure to detail the risk of alopecia properly has resulted in lasting harm to victims.
  • Valsartan — Valsartan-based tablets and capsules are usually prescribed to treat high blood pressure and other serious conditions, such as congestive heart failure. In 2018, a recall was issued for many generic medications containing Valsartan after a chemical capable of causing cancer was identified.

If you believe you’ve been affected by one of these drugs or another medication that did not work as it should, we’ll assess your potential claim in a free initial consultation. If a cause of action exists, we’ll maximize your chance for a successful result in a verdict or settlement.
