DuPage County Dangerous Drugs Attorneys

Bensenville Lawyers for Victims of Dangerous Pharmaceutical Products

When you visit your doctor with concerns regarding an illness or medical condition, your physician may prescribe one or more medications to treat your condition. You have the right to expect that the medication will work as it is intended, and while you may be aware of potential side effects, there should not be concerns about the drug's overall safety. Unfortunately, reality does not always match expectations, and defective drugs are a serious problem in today's healthcare landscape. Each year, thousands of patients suffer injuries and illnesses due to defective and dangerous pharmaceutical products.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our attorneys recognize the devastating effects a defective or dangerous drug can have on your life. We also know how overwhelming it can be to stand up to large pharmaceutical companies and healthcare conglomerates. Our lawyers have over a century of combined legal experience, and we have helped many clients whose lives have been affected by defective drugs. We are ready and willing to go to work on your behalf as well.

What Makes a Drug Defective?

Defective drugs can be any type of pharmaceutical product or medication that causes patients to suffer physical, psychological, or emotional injuries. Such a drug may be sold over the counter or by prescription only. A medication could be determined to be defective if there are issues with its formulation, problems with insufficient labeling, or inadequate or misleading warnings about possible risks and side effects.

The pharmaceutical industry in the United States is highly competitive, and drug makers are always looking for the next big "miracle" drug to treat a given condition. Unfortunately, industry pressure often leads to drug makers taking shortcuts during required testing or making other compromises on quality so that they can get their drugs to market as quickly as possible. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees the approval process for new drugs, but drug makers present their own testing documentation to the FDA. Manufacturers have been known to manipulate test records and to seek approval for medications that were known to be extremely dangerous—and sometimes even deadly.

Sometimes, a drug might be on the market for months or years before the dangers of the drug become evident. In a case like this, the issues might not have come up during the original testing process, and the use of the drug over the long term uncovered a new series of problems. When side effects and risks related to a certain drug start to outweigh the benefits the drug is supposed to offer, it may be considered defective.
