Dangerous Drugs

We are exclusively a Plaintiff’s firm. Our attorneys handle any type of serious injury case. From injuries caused by dog bites to those caused by environmental toxins, we’ll fight for compensation from the responsible party. We can also answer your important questions about how personal injury cases work and what to expect.

The pharmaceutical industry is powerful. Though they manufacture drugs that may help patients, they are also concerned about the bottom line. As a result, some drugs make it through the pipeline before testing has been completed, or with side effects and health risks minimized or ignored. Drugs that have been aggressively marketed in this way are often the center of recalls, but for some patients, these recalls come too late. Dangerous health issues such as heart attacks, strokes, kidney and liver damage, diabetes, and even suicide may be the result of taking a defective pharmaceutical. Recent FDA recalls, or black box warnings – the strongest warning given before a recall is put into effect – have affected many drugs for many different conditions. If you or a loved one has been injured or sickened by taking something meant to help, please contact the drug lawsuit attorneys at Taylor Martino.

Belviq Lawsuits

Amidst concerns announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the medication is possibly linked to an increased occurrence of cancer, in early 2020 Belviq (lorcaserin) was voluntarily recalled from the US market by its’ maker Eisai Inc. The decision came after the analysis of results retrieved from a long-term study conducted after Belviq hit the market, in order to determine the cardiovascular effects of the drug.

What the study revealed was that patients taking Belviq were more likely to develop cancer over the course of five years, than participants taking a placebo. Certain types of cancer, including pancreatic, colorectal and lung cancers, were more commonly diagnosed in Belviq-users. Patients and their families who developed cancer after taking Belviq, are now suing the drug’s manufacturer for failing to adequately warn consumers of the drug’s safety risks.

The law firm of Taylor Martino is actively evaluating personal injury, cancer, and wrongful death cases caused by the use of Belviq. We intend to hold the drug makers accountable for allegedly concealing the Belviq cancer link and putting profit before people. An experienced attorney can help evaluate your case and assess your specific damages to get you the maximum compensation you need for your recovery and for your family. Find Out If You Qualify >>

Paragard Lawsuits

ParaGard is an intrauterine device (IUD) used by women for long-term birth control since its’ introduction onto the market nearly 40 years ago. But recently, the small copper implant has been linked to serious injuries and complications that occur during the removal of the device. Lawsuits filed against the IUD’s manufacturer Teva Pharmaceuticals – which later sold ParaGard to CooperSurgical in 2017 – Allege perforation, migration, infection, scarring, and permanent damage to the uterus or other nearby organs in women who relied on the device for long-term pregnancy prevention.

Elmiron Lawsuits

Were you treated with Elmiron for interstitial cystitis or urinary tract infections (UTIs)?

If you have been diagnosed with vision problems related to the retina or macula, such as macular degeneration or pigmentary maculopathy, it could be due to long-term treatment with Elmiron. 

Elmiron, a medication used to treat bladder conditions, may be associated with a rare eye condition called pigmentary maculopathy, a type of macular degeneration. According to recent scientific reports, this rare macular degeneration can occur after prolonged Elmiron treatment.

The symptoms associated with pigmentary maculopathy include:

  • Difficulty reading
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye pain
  • Vision disturbances
  • Vision loss
  • Trouble adjusting to darkness

If you were diagnosed with a vision condition caused by Elmiron, your doctor may not have been aware that  Elmiron was a possible cause.  The studies linking the drug to retina and macula-related vision problems are just beginning to surface and your treatment may need to be re-evaluated.


Valsartan has been gaining attention since late 2018, due to the link between the generic drug meant to treat blood pressure and an increased risk of cancer and liver damage. In addition to treating blood pressure, valsartan, classified as an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), is used to treat heart failure. It can also help to improve a person’s chances of survival after a heart attack.

Valsartan works by blocking the action of certain natural substances in the body called angiotensin II receptors that narrow or tighten the blood vessels. By stopping this action, the heart can pump blood more efficiently and easily throughout the body.

People who filed valsartan lawsuits allege they “developed cancer as a result of using valsartan containing
NDMA or NDEA impurities. NDMA and NDEA are classified as “probable human carcinogens,” meaning
there is a likelihood they can cause cancer in humans, especially at high levels of exposure. The FDA
noted that the amounts of the chemical substances found in contaminated batches of valsartan exceeded
acceptable daily limits for human consumption.

The law firm of Taylor Martino is actively evaluating personal injury and wrongful death cases resulting from valsartan use. We intend to hold the drug makers accountable for allegedly concealing valsartan’s link to cancer and other possible injuries. Drug manufacturers must be held responsible when they willfully put profit before people thereby harming those who are trusting them to be considerate of their health and wellbeing.

When I met Ed Rowan, my family and I were in a dispute with a very large and nationally recognized company. From the... start, I could tell we were in good hands. His immediate grasp of the case, including the most minute details was refreshing. Within a few weeks, I found that skill and a good memory were only two of Ed’s attributes. He is also honest, hardworking, and extremely motivated to win. The successful resolution of our case far exceeded my expectations. Ed Rowan has proved himself to me. He will be my first call for any legal issues I have in the future.read more
