Prescription Drugs & Medications
Memphis Attorneys Fighting for Victims of Unsafe Drugs and Medications
Drug companies have a duty to adequately research and study medications as well as warn patients about the potential risks of taking these drugs, or they risk having their products recalled by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Use of certain medications has shown to result in significant side effects, including death, indicating that these products were prematurely and/or wrongly introduced into the market. At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, our Memphis prescription drug lawyers are committed to helping individuals injured by unsafe drugs and medications recover the damages to which they are entitled.
Big pharmaceutical companies pour resources into defending injury claims made by innocent consumers. Rarely will they voluntarily accept responsibility for causing harm. Thus, class action and multidistrict litigation (MDL) is almost always required in order to properly investigate, conduct discovery, and obtain evidence needed to help victims recover. Claims have been successfully asserted against pharmaceutical companies for violating FDA regulations, skirting rules to get FDA approval, providing insufficient warnings of side effects, and hiding test results. In these cases, juries can award punitive damages to punish drug companies for intentional or reckless conduct and deter others from acting in a similar manner in the future.
At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, we have the resources and experience to help hold drug companies accountable for injuries caused by their products. Our full service personal injury law firm can consult with experts and pursue big pharmaceutical companies in mass tort and class action cases. If you or a loved one has suffered from major side effects while taking a prescription drug, such as cancer, internal bleeding, stroke, heart attack, birth defects, or other serious injury, we can pursue a claim on your behalf and aggressively seek the money you need and deserve. Our team of prescription drug attorneys, based in Memphis, will do everything we can to take care of you and your family, and to help get you compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages that may apply to your situation.
Our attorneys go beyond the required continuing legal education obligations, regularly attending seminars across the country to keep current on drug litigation issues. We will utilize our knowledge, experience, and skill to help fight for your interests. This includes analyzing all potential causes of action and theories of recovery on your behalf. For example, if you were harmed by a drug, your claim against the product manufacturer may not be your only remedy. You may also be able to assert a medical malpractice claim if a doctor prescribed the wrong medication or an incorrect dosage.
