West Palm Beach Drug Injury Attorney

66When suffering from a disease, infection, or serious medical condition, we turn to our doctors and the pharmaceutical industry for relief, repair, and recovery. Unfortunately, when medical treatment involves prescription drugs or even over-the-counter drugs, those resources cannot always be trusted. Injuries from all types of medicinal drugs are on the rise often because drug manufacturers fail to properly test their products or engage in other negligent practices. If you’ve been the victim of a drug injury in West Palm Beach, you may be facing the need for additional medical treatment to correct the problem, lost earnings, other out-of-pocket expenses, and non-financial losses such as emotional distress, pain and suffering. At Steinger, Greene & Feiner, our team of attorneys, case managers, assistants, and investigators is entirely familiar with what it takes to put together a strong case against large pharmaceutical companies and their insurance carriers. We have decades of combined experience in standing up for the legal rights of the injured in south Florida, whether those injuries stem from adverse side effects from drugs or other causes. When you’re facing medical expenses and other losses, you have a right to know how you can fight back. Our firm is always standing by to give you legal representation that can make a difference.

Drugs That Have Proven Faulty

Drug injuries can follow from use of any type of drug, such as:

  • Cholesterol-lowering drugs like Crestor
  • Drugs used to treat diabetes, such as Actos, Avandia, Byetta, and Januvia
  • Acne drugs such as Accutane
  • Epilepsy and anti-seizure drugs such as Depakote
  • Drugs used to treat osteoporosis, such as Fosamax
  • Antidepressants, such as Paxil and Prozac
  • Over-the-counter drugs such as Tylenol, which can cause liver failure

Injuries, health damage, and wrongful death can follow continued use of dangerous drugs because effects of long-term use are often unknown. Only after adverse reaction reports involving injuries and deaths are submitted to the FDA do these dangerous side effects come to light. FDA black-box warnings and drug recalls may often take place long after unsuspecting victims have developed various injuries which can range from heart attacks and strokes to kidney or liver damage, muscle weakness, birth defects in their newborns, Type 2 diabetes, or other severe side effects. In such cases, drug manufacturers may be found to have been negligent in various ways, from failing to warn consumers about the dangers of their products to promoting such products for off-label use to deliberately suppressing known information about side effects. Every year, additional recalls and warnings are issued by the FDA. Drugwatch.com provides continuing information for the public about the recalls of medical devices as well as prescription drugs.
